Cowboy star Bob Steele looks embarrassed throughout most of Headin' North, as well he should. The film begins conventionally enough, with Steele once again accused of a murder he didn't commit. Hoping to remain in hiding until he can expose the real killer, our hero disguises himself as a vaudeville entertainer, complete with a loud and vulgar "city slicker" outfit. Heroine Barbara Luddy (later a prolific radio actress) speaks for the entire audience when she gives Steele the once-over and exclaims "Where did you get those funny clothes?" Fortunately, Steele regains most of his dignity in a climactic fistfight with the villain.
