Storyline

In 1876, Duncan MacDonald joins the new, 300-member Mounted Police in western Canada, just in time for a dangerous mission. It seems the Cree Indians, raiding across the border in Montana, took two hostages for their safe return to Canada. But MacDonald, with only scout Natayo to help, will need all his diplomacy and then some to extract the captives from the midst of a thousand Cree.

Trivia

Actor Stuart Randall, playing Standing Bear, had all his lines re-dubbed with another actor's voice after filming was completed. Apparently the producers finally realized that most Canadian Indians do not, like Randall, have a distinct Texas accent. See more »

Goofs

It is stated in the beginning that Duncan MacDonald speaks Cree, but then his adopted Indian son has a conversation with the captive white woman and they both understand one another! He didn't speak English and she didn't speak Cree. See more »

A fine western adventure
12 July 2003 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

Tyrone Power is the title character in this good western whose mission is to effect the return of the Cree tribe from the United States back to Canada in the name of the Queen. Of course, the Indians just want to hunt and return to their old way of life and to lift a few scalps along the way. Power is aided by a trail-savvy, talkative half-breed scout who provides droll comic relief along the way. The film has more dialogue than action, although white hostages held by the Indians lead to some tense moments for the Mountie. The officer's peace efforts are threatened by a band of hostile Indians, with most of the skirmishes coming at the end of the picture. The movie has a great cast of western character actors and the camera work is also very good.
