Produced in Canada by Ernest G. Shipman's aptly-named Winnipeg Productions, this minor Northwest Mounted melodrama starred Gaston Glass as a young Scotchman who immigrates to Canada and becomes a mountie. There is a gang of train robbers, a damsel-in-distress (American actress Vivienne Osborne), marauding Indians lead by the sneaky-looking Frank Lanning, rapid river crossings, and sundry other clich├ęs of the genre before Glass can clear his name in a forgery charge. Producer Shipman was the former husband of action heroine Nell Shipman and the father of screenwriter Barry Shipman.
