Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
J.P. McGowan directed this weak Western featuring former silent cowboy Bob Custer as Sgt. Ned Stone, a Canadian Mountie searching for the villain that killed his partner. At first, Stone suspects Tom (Robert "Buddy" Shaw), the brother of Ann (Blanche Mehaffey), who runs the trading post. The latter begs the real murderers, Leclerc (George Regas) and Tim McGuire (Eddie Dunn), to clear her brother's name, but they are mostly inclined to get rid of both brother and sister. In the end, Stone is aided by a mystery man, who turns out to be the chief inspector himself (William Walling) and the true villains are brought to justice. A grateful Ann then accepts Stone's proposal of marriage. A G.A. Durlam production, Riders of the North was released by low-budget company Syndicate Pictures Corp.
