At the height of his activity as Hollywood's foremost producer of 2-reel comedies, Hal Roach developed the urge to direct a feature film and thus went down the street to MGM to helm the rip-roaring adventure yarn Men of the North. Gilbert Roland stars as Louis LaBey, a French-Canadian trapper who falls in love with Nedra (Barbara Leonard), daughter of a wealthy gold-mine owner. Hampering Louis' romance is the fact that he is suspected of a series of daring daylight robberies, wherein gold messengers are robbed of their cargo. It turns out that he is guilty, but through an 11th-hour plot twist it is proven that Louis was actually only stealing from himself! Men of the North was also filmed in Spanish, German, French and Italian-language versions, with Gilbert Roland repeating his role in the Spanish adaptation, and John Reinhardt, Andre Luguet and Franco Corsaro respectively starring in the other versions.
