Storyline

Fur thieves, who murder trappers when they refuse to give up their pelts at a low price, occupy the attention of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police. The leader of the gang is Victor Renaud (Dick Curtis), also the mayor of the small Canadian town where the gang is headquartered. Lucky Kerrigan is broken from the mounted service for apparent disobedience to orders, which results in the death of a fellow Mountie. Lucky, working undercover, aids the Mounties in rounding up the gang and gains back his uniform, and also the love of Gabrielle Renaud (Adele Mara), Renaud's sister who was unaware of his criminal activities.

Trivia

One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Goofs

Russell Hayden's character is referred to as "Lucky Lawson" throughout the film,but his dishonorable discharge papers as shown on screen (and the film's tagline) state that his character is "Lucky Kerrigan". See more »

Russell Hayden was perhaps one of Hoppy's best sidekicks, woman chaser, brash and brazen. He puts on the same persona in this action packed pseudo-western but can't carry the film quite like Hoppy. Dub Taylor adds as the comic sidekick Cannonball, much like Gabby Hayes and California Karlson in the Hoppy films. It still has the great good guy versus bad guy values of all the genre films in that era. Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys add the music, often when its out of sync with the plot but I guess they had to work it in somewhere.
