Bush Pilot is a 1947 Canadian-American film directed by Sterling Campbell. The film, produced by Campbell's Dominion Productions, was noted for being one of the first full-length feature films in which a Canadian production company held the primary role.[2]

The movie was filmed predominantly in Toronto, Ontario, with outdoor and flight sequences filmed in the Muskoka region of Ontario.[2]

Plot summary[edit]

Red North is a bush pilot in the village of Nouvelle, part of Canada's north. His half-brother, Paul Gerard decides to relocate his bush pilot business to the same lake, competing with Red's business and romantic interests.



Although long out of print, the film was restored by the National Archives of Canada and The Movie Network in the 1990s,[2] and was screened on the Movie Network as a special Canada Day broadcast in 1998.[2]
