Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. See more »

Okay for what it is, I guess...

Painfully bland Canadian Mountie movie starring Rin Tin Tin (Jr.) with most of the actors barely showing any emotion and saying their lines in a matter-of-fact "let's get this done on the first take" kinda way. The only actual acting is by Earl Dwire (Inspector Bradshaw), who brings some humanity, certainty, and nobility to the otherwise static cast.

Not much to say, just a simple plot involving embezzled funds and a woman who is brave enough to try to stop it, which is the basis for the whole thing. Being "smart", she sends the bonds to her uncle, which of course gets him killed, but there is no "oh I feel so guilty" here, which I did expect. In fact, this rather odd nuance in the plot is just taken for granted by every single character in this. Ah well.

One thing that kind of stood out was the nearly complete lack of sound and music. Music would have helped in some parts, as there are times when I was almost waiting for some mournful strings or some action music, but...nothing. There is one scene where Rinty looks as if he is snarling, but no growls emerge. Yes, other movies like this do not have a soundtrack, but for some reason, I noticed it more in this one. Still, the lack of sound was very effective with the first shots of the forest and the cabin.

At no time anywhere in the movie was I remotely convinced that the dog was actually of above average intelligence or that he was injured in any way (especially when he was slinking along near the cabin and just immediately stood up to do the climbing bit). Still worth a watch, though, primarily for historical reasons and film research.

For some bizarre reason, the UK title is supposedly "Get That Girl", which makes less sense than even "Caryl of the Mountains".

But thank goodness it's only about an hour long.
