Storyline

Convicted murderer John Keith (Dennis Morgan), escapes from his guards, and is pursued by Sergeant Conniston (Dennis Morgan, of the Royal Canadian Mouted Police. After a two year hunt, Conniston almost dies of the cold and is rescued by Keith. Before he dies, Keith convinces him he is innocent of the crime for which he has been convicted, and Conniston insists that Keith, who bears nearly an identical resemblance to the Mountie, put on his uniform and pretend he is Conniston and go to River's End and prove his innocence.

Silly 'B' mystery
6 February 2003 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Calling this a mystery is a stretch as the only mystery is when the incredibly credulous townsfolk of River's End, Alberta, will figure out that Dennis Morgan is actually an escaped convict and NOT the Canadian Mountie sent in pursuit of him. Yes, it's the old chestnut about the two fellows who look exactly alike and switch identities in order to right the wrongs of an imperfect judicial system. If you can accept the premise, you'll enjoy this speck of fluff. Victor Jory offers the only interesting performance as a relatively likeable bad guy.
