Storyline

After finding a vital pass through the Canadian Rockies for the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway, Tom Andrews tells his boss Cornelius Van Horne that he is resigning to marry the girl he loves, Cecille Gautier. From Cecille, Tom learns that fur trader Dirk Rourke fears the coming of the railroad because it threatens his hold on the Indians and other trappers. Tom and Rorke have a bitter fight over Cecille, and Tom asks her to wait for him, as he has to go back and finish his job with the railroad. Aided by Dynamite Dawson, Tom finds evidence of Rourke's work against the railroad construction and almost loses his life when Rourke fires into some crates of dynamite Tom is unloading. The construction camp's doctor, Edith Cabot, gives her own blood in a transfusion to save Tom's life. Cecille, realizing that her father is working with Rourke against the railroad,rides off to warn Tom. Rourke intercepts her and tells her that Tom is in love with the lady doctor, but she bullwhips ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Randolph Scott has his hands full with Victor Jory's disruptions
28 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although I have about 50 Randolph Scott westerns, there's always room for one more. "Canadian Pacific" was finally aired by TCM as part of the 20th Century Fox package that it has been showing of late. It's an average western, as other reviews indicate. The color is Cinecolor, which makes it look like a 1940s scenic post card, and so it carries a nostalgic feeling with it. Scott wears a leather jacket that looks a bit familiar. Maybe it was a favorite of his.

In this story, Victor Jory is the bad guy, stirring up the Indians so that the railroad can't come through and so that he can maintain his trading posts monopoly. He had a 50-year career in the movies and TV.

Robert Barrat, usually at home in a Warner Bros. movie, is effective as the railroad's general manager. J. Carroll Naish takes care of the dynamite and helps Scott out, but a lot of dynamite goes missing.

Scott has two women to choose from. One is a doctor, the pacifist Jane Wyman. The other is the spirited Nancy Olson in her first credited movie role. The following year, she had a juicy role in "Sunset Boulevard".

Scott, who starts off very tight with Olson, slips away to Wyman who saves his life with her blood. She even induces him to hang up his guns. Will that stick? Whom will Scott end up with? Watch and find out.
