Partners is a love story played off against a background of unscrupulous methods used by an American multi-national firm interested in buying out a large Canadian pulp and paper firm controlled by a very old moneyed family. Don Owen brings it off with elan and a few mystifying moments along the way.

A thief and dope smuggler, played with macho vigor by Michael Margotta, gets romantically and sexually involved with the daughter of the pulp and paper firm’s owner and takes her along running dope across the US-Canada border.

Aside from Margotta, a fine performance by Denholm Elliott, and a jail scene vignette by actress Jackie Burroughs as a prostitute, the acting rarely rises above the superficial.
