Untamed is a 1940 American Technicolor adventure film directed by George Archainbaud and starring Ray Milland, Patricia Morison and Akim Tamiroff. It is based on the 1926 Sinclair Lewis novel Mantrap.


A doctor takes a hunting trip to the Canadian wilderness. When he gets badly mauled by a bear, his life is saved by his guide Joe Easter.

Easter takes the doctor to his cabin, where he is nursed to recovery by Easter's young beautiful wife Alverna, and they fall in love. Easter leaves for an extended hunting trip while the doctor and Alverna grapple with their feelings for each other, a blizzard and an epidemic.
