The "wife" of the title is Hope Ross, played by Louise Lovely, but never mind her. The real star of the proceedings is former rodeo champ Jack Hoxie, here billed as "Hart Hoxie" in emulation of the actor's idol, William S. Hart. Hoxie plays Jack Darling, a Canadian Mountie who rides into a Tundra village in search of an escaped criminal (Allen Carew). Jack finds out that the fugitive has changed his name and has landed the job of village sheriff. Hoping to expose the villain, Jack pretends to be a crook and joins the duplicitous sheriff in a robbery scheme. As for Hope Ross, she must overcome the stigma of being an unwed mother -- which, as it turns out, she really isn't.
