O'Rourke and his Cree half brother Cajou are returning from a northern Canadian trapping trip when they encounter a burned wagon train and sole survivor 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. 7th 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

None of the filming was actually done in Saskatchewan. It was instead filmed in the neighboring province of Alberta, and at Universal's studios in California. See more »
Movie is titled Saskatchewan but that province does not have the Rocky Mountains which dominate this film. Prettier, yes, but not factual, as the film was supposed to be based on a true story. See more »
I've been to Sakatchewan and wasn't aware of many mountains in the Big Sky province, though the film claims to have been made in the locations where the alleged story took place, but what a treat, anyway! Stunning photography (wherever!), marvellous action sequences (vintage Raoul Walshe), intimidating Sioux, Ladd at his most laconic, sexy Shelly Winters before she got fat, the excellent Robert Douglas, J Carrol Naish, Jay Silverheels and Hugh O'Brien in his pre-Wyatt Earp persona. And just think - this would have been one half of a double-bill!
