Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Norma Shearer hadn't yet been given the MGM superstar treatment when she starred in The Devil's Partner. Shearer is mostly passive in this he-man adventure tale set in the North Woods. The villain, smuggler Edward Roseman, would give anything if Norma would give in. Saving her virtue in the nick of time is stalwart Charles Delaney, who turns out to be a Northwest Mountie. Once she left the indie market for MGM, Norma Shearer steered clear of musty melodramas like this.
