Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Prisoners of the Storm was based on the rugged James Oliver Curwood yarn The Quest of Joan. When two Canadian prospectors strike gold, they make plans to stake a mutual claim at a faraway trading post. One of the prospectors is murdered en route to the post, and that's when Mountie Walter McGrail enters the picture. Following orders, he sets out to arrest the surviving prospector on suspicion of murder. But McGrail's resolve weakens when the prospector's pretty daughter Peggy Montgomery (former child star "Baby Peggy") nurses him back to health when he's injured in a blinding snowstorm. Certain by now that Montgomery's father is innocent, McGrail dedicates himself to tracking down the real killer.
