Storyline

This film is a story dealing with the line riders of the northwest. The line riders are a body of men whose duties are similar to those of the famous Texas Rangers along the Mexican line. Their range is the wildest portion of the great northwest country and they ride the imaginary line that separates the United States from the Dominion of Canada. In the discharge of their duties they are brought into active contact with the most desperate criminals. The particular incident upon which this story is based, deals with opium smuggling, and shows how Captain Bob MacDonald, after having run the smugglers down, falls a victim to a carefully laid plot to put him out of the way. He is accused by one of his captives of having deliberately murdered his partner.

There is a distinct note of freshness
26 February 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Many producers get "fresh" backgrounds by taking different views of the same general locality. In this picture's setting there is a distinct note of freshness. It tells a story of the border between Montana and Canada and was apparently taken on the spot; we don't see the everlasting beach with the fishermen and the fisher lass. William Duncan plays the lead as one of the U.S. border riders, and his capture of the opium smugglers and the peculiar tangle that it gets him in makes the picture. The love story is secondary and is used as relief. Myrtle Stedman plays the woman, just an ordinary, but plucky woman who lives on the Canadian side. We were glad to meet her. The revenue man loves her and so does the leading smuggler (Lester Cunio) and when, after the plan to get the opium across has been cleverly discovered, and the smuggler, after wounding the revenue man, is killed, the second smuggler (Rex de Rosselli) makes the girl think that the officer has murdered him. She gets him across the line with a view to having him arrested by the mounted police and this brings the story to a dramatic climax. It is a very good picture and will make an excellent offering. The author and producer has done a worthy piece of work. - The Moving Picture World, November 2, 1912
