O'Rourke and his Cree half brother Cajou are returning from a northern Canadian trapping trip when they encoutner a burned wagon train and sole surivor Grace. Naive Mountie commander Benton believes it to be a Cree attack. The Sioux from across the border are trying to force the Cree into being allies in their struggle with the U.S. seventh cavalry. O'Rourke must mutiny to save the men. He must also aid Grace, in whom Marshal Smith has both official and unprovoked amorous interests. Written by

Canadian Big Band leader Moxie Whitney and his musicians were extras many times in this movie. They played the bad guys, the good guys as well as mounties. See more »
When Batouche spots the Cree and Sioux following, he sees them by looking down from a high point. However, when O'Rourke looks at them through the binoculars he sees them from front on, at ground level. See more »
Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse vacationed in Banff. There are snow capped mountains surrounding Fort Walsh in SW Saskatchewan. The Mounties had a gun battle with the Sioux, leaving many dead on both sides. You can travel by canoe from the Rockies to Fort Walsh in a day (quite a feat considering it's hundreds of miles, and there's no river).
It's all good.
Indian scouts making jungle calls to each other at night. Mighty Alan Ladd slaying men left and right, winning the heart of the beautiful woman, and never having to raise his voice or change it from a flat, dull monotone. That's the kind of men the Mounties were made of.
Best of all, Shelley Winters in a low cut dress, six gun in hand explaining "I was on my way to Battleford!"
