    The setting for Breakheart Pass is (unusually for this author) the old West, maybe not quite wild but still full of deadly perils both obvious and concealed. Most of the well-photographed action takes place on a train that wends its way through very spectacular mountains on what is said to be a relief mission after plague has struck a remote /5(). Breakheart Pass has a great score, excellent cast, a slow but tense first half and some nice action sequences in the second. Plot: Train with medical supplies and small U.S. Army unit is heading through Rocky Mountains towards plagued Fort Humboldt.
