Storyline

Counterfeit bills are being printed in Canada and shipped across the border hidden in blocks of ice. When the counterfeiters force engraver Bronson to make a new plate, he inscribes a tiny help message on it. Renfrew catches a henchman who has one of the new bills. A magnifying glass lets him read the message and he heads out alone to round up the counterfeiters. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Renfrew Of The Royal Mounted sure is a curious movie. I mean I'm not too sure who greenlighted the adventures of a singing Mountie, but here it is, and while it's entertaining, it sure makes some highly amusing factual errors. James Newill stars as Renfrew, the dashing figure in red, while not singing songs about Barbecue sauce (!!) he helps out a woman who gets inadvertently caught as bait while going to see her father, who unbeknownst to her, is being forced to work as a counterfeiter for them bad Amerikans. Got all that? Good. Actually, the plot is not too hard to follow, and builds up some suspense along the way, I wasn't really convinced with Renfrew as a gruff hero though.

Watch for Renfrew casually littering in his home country at the end. lol
