Spell of the Yukon was inspired by the Robert W. Service narrative poem of the same name. Edmund Breese plays Jim Carson, a rough-hewn miner who strikes it rich in the Yukon. Before long, Jim has surrounded himself with luxuries and is guzzling champagne by the quart. His eventual downfall is paralleled with the rise to maturity of nominal hero Bob Adams (Billy Sherwood). Leading lady Evelyn Brent would later play the female equivalent of Jim Carson in the 1930 "Great White North" melodrama The Silver Horde.
