Storyline

Columbia Pictures 18th serial (between "Captain Midnight" and "The Secret Code"). The trading post of Sitkawan, Canada is stunned one morning to learn that the previously peaceful Indians attacked and massacred the settlers aboard a fur-bearing wagon train. Particularly distressed is Richard Winton (Herbert Rawlinson), who had been planning on building a railroad through the wilderness. Sergeant MacLane (Robert Kellard)( investigates and finds that the attackers were really renegade white men led by Mort Ransome (Kenneth MacDonald). Ransome has conspired with Black Bear (Nick TYhompson'), medicine man of the tribe, who persuades a number of rebellious braves to take the warpath. He also learns that two white renegades have kidnapped Diana Blake (Nell O'Day), daughter of the local post factor. MacLane saves Diana from a runaway wagon just before it plunges over a cliff, and pursues the warring Indians and Ransome's renegades for 14 more chapters concluding with Chapter 15, "The Mountie...

Perils and yet more perils.....
8 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Villainous Ransome (Kenneth MacDonald) doesn't want the railroad to be built - at least, not until he wins the contract - and employs a formidable army of B western baddies (Ingram, King, Jolley, Chesebro, Osborne etc.)to carry out his wicked wiles.

Standing in his way is resolute mountie, Sergeant Mack MacLane (Robert Stevens): he is shot, crushed, blown up (at least twice), set on fire, tipped over a cliff and subjected to just about every form of near death happening known to serialdom but, of course, emerges triumphant! This is not, it must be said, a classic serial but it is lively and fast moving. Stevens looks the part but is no great shakes as an actor

  • he tends to bellow his lines in a monotone - but there is a neat


performance from pretty Nell O'Day as the factor's daughter and a wonderfully hammy one from Forrest Taylor as the whining Preacher Hinsdale.

There's also a nice visual effect with the off/on waterfall which covers the entrance to the bad guys' secret hideout!
