This pedestrian chapterplay added William Henry -- renamed Bill Henry for the occasion -- to the long list of lesser known journeymen actors elevated for economy purposes to stardom during the last years of American movie serials. As the title suggests, Canadian Mounties vs. Atomic Invaders combined two cherished genres: Northwest melodrama and Science Fiction. Not that the two necessarily mixed well, and the drawn out story of a Canadian mountie teaming up with a female undercover agent (Susan Morrow broke no new ground, to put it mildly. The 12 chapter serial was edited down and released as a feature film entitled Missile Base at Taniak.
