Storyline

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 Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Good Autry Fare
19 December 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

The movie does a good job of emulating western Canada using the San Bernardino forest east of LA. Gene and Pat are US Marshals crossing into Canada on the trail of French-accented robbers. This gets them tangled up with the niece (Verdugo) and nephew (Frasher) of one of the robbers, and the shifting allegiances that result.

It's a more complex plot than usual, plus Gene is not the romantic interest. Also, as a marshal, Pat's hijinks are kept at a minimum except for a hefty, amorous Indian woman. The shootout at the beginning is an eye-catcher, along with some hard riding and flying fists. Then too, that bang-up, or should I say burn-up, finale is a grabber. There's a couple low-key Autry tunes, but no big production numbers. Too bad gimlet-eyed Trevor Bardette (Duval) doesn't get more screen time since he's such a scary bad guy. Anyway, it's a trusted Autry mix, done up Canadian style.

A "7" on the matinée scale.
