Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Former silent screen cowboy Tom Tyler headlined this average Universal serial as a Northwest Mounted Police officer chasing his own brother (Earl McCarthy), who has been framed in a killing. The real culprits, outlaws Pierce LaRue (Leon Duval) and "Black" MacDougal (William L. Thorne), also murdered pretty Ann Louise's (Jacqueline Wells) father for his gold claim, a prize they attempt to hold on to by any means for 12 two-reel instalments. According to the serial's publicity, Clancy of the Mounted was based on a poem by Robert W. Service. Leading lady Jacqueline Wells, a 1934 WAMPAS baby star, previously acted under the name Diane Duval and would later bill herself Julie Bishop. Former silent screen Western stars Tom London (aka Leonard Clapham), Edmund Cobb, and Fred Humes play bit parts as Mounties in this serial.
