Storyline

Brothers Dick and Carey Ross, eluding the law because of Carey's disregard for laws,cross over the Canadian border from Montana, and join the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They react in different ways with Dick becoming an honest and standout member of the Mounties while Carey resorts to his old ways. The attempt by Chief Sitting Bull to incite the Canadian Indians to war is also woven into the threadbare version - number-231 good brother vs. bad brother plot. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Hackneyed if colorful Western
28 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

James Craig, long past his Hollywood heyday, and Keith Larsen, a bland, rugged youth, are brothers on the run from the law. They decide to seek refuge in the Great White North. Luckily for them, the recruiting standards for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police seem to be low. They don't run any background checks, taking them at their word that they are honest types who would love to take the Queen's shilling. Benign, old duffer Reginald Denny is soon kitting them out with Mountie outfits. Squaw woman Rita Moreno tries to catch the eyes of the brothers. The future EGOT winner did a lot of these "exotic" roles at this stage of her career, and is unconvincing here. There is a stab at historical accuracy with the introduction of Sitting Bull and his tribe, fleeing Little Big Horn. They are given an eccentric speech pattern and a yearning to recover their old hunting grounds. Clearly, they are doomed. The setting is a bit different to the majority of Westerns and most of it is shot outdoors. However, dramatically it is uninvolving and lacks credibility
