Death Hunt is a 1981 action film loosely based on the actual 1932 manhunt for Albert Johnson ("Mad Trapper of Rat River") conducted by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in the Yukon. Unlike the fictionalized character portrayed by Charles Bronson the real Albert Johnson was killed by the Mounties on February 17, 1932. Additionally the movie has a much higher body-count. In the actual event Johnson shot and killed RCMP constable Edgar Millen (portrayed by Lee Marvin and whom never gets a scratch in the movie) and wounded two other constables (both of whom recovered from their wounds). The movie was filmed in March and April of 1980 in Canada and New Mexico.
