Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Every so often, Columbia's resident cowboy hero Charles Starrett would head to the studio's facilities in British Columbia to star in a Northwest Mountie opus. The second of these "northerns" was Secret Patrol, which was supposed to have been directed by screenwriter Ford Beebe but was ultimately helmed by David Selman. Starrett is cast as Mountie Alan, who goes undercover to solve the murder of his best friend. Tied in with this is the mysterious disappearance of the Chief Inspector's son (Henry Mollison), who is presumed dead but who has actually gone AWOL. The love interest is provided by the exotically yclept Columbia ingenue Finis Barton.
