An existing production still for the Kermit Maynard "northern" Phantom Patrol pretty much sums up the outcome of the plot. Smartly dressed in a Mountie uniform, Maynard holds unconscious heroine Joan Barclay in his arms. Meanwhile, villain Julian Rivero, arms to his sides and a scowl of defeat on his face, surrenders to the Royal Canadian Mounted. About the only aspect of the plotline not revealed in the still is the fact that head-baddie Harry Worth has been trying to conduct a criminal empire while disguised as a celebrated detective-story writer. Directed by silent-serial veteran Charles Hutchison, Phantom Patrol was "suggested" by a James Oliver Curwood yarn.
