U.S. Marshal Gene Autry and his deputy Scat Russell cross into Canda while pursuing bank robbers Pierre LaBlond and Raoul Duval. They meet wounded Canadian Mounted Policeman Terry Dillon, whose partner has been killed by the bandits, and take him to a cabin where they meet Duval's niece, Marie. Jack Duvan, Marie's brother, hates all lawmen and regards LaBlond as his hero. The elder Duval and Bastiste are captured by the Mounties in a raid which uncovers stolen U.S. gold bullion. LaBlond frees the bandits and takes Marie hostage and forces her to flee with him. Written by

Columbia Pictures and director John English has U.S. Marshall Gene Autry on his Wonder Horse Champion with saddle buddy Scat Russell(Pat Buttram)in hot pursuit of bank robbers Pierre LaBlond(Carleton Young)and Raoul Duval(Trevor Bardette). The bad guys cross the border into Canada, where Gene and Scat find a wounded Canadian Mountie, Terry Dillon(Richard Emory), who tells of his partner being murdered by the bandits. Gene, Scat and the Canadian Mounties track down and wipe out LaBlond and his gang. The grand finale being a vicious shootout.
Gene gets to croon "Blue Canadian Rockies". The beautiful Canadian scenery is not Canada at all, but mostly San Bernadino National Forest in California. Other players: Elena Verdugo, Francis McDonald, Herbert Rawlinson and Jim Frasher.
