Just about every cliché associated with the Northwest Mounted Police was crammed into this highly mediocre drama. Its one high point is the appearance of Eileen Sedgwick as the heroine. Sedgwick, a minor serial star, could ride and perform stunts with the best of the guys, and her capabilities are used several times here. Wealthy miner Henry Lamont (S.W. Williams) is mysteriously murdered. Mountie Joe Hammond (Joe Moore) goes to investigate and he finds Lamont's daughter, Jeanne (Sedgwick), who is at a loss to explain who would kill her father. Jeanne goes to live with her uncle (also, for some reason, played by Williams), who tells her that he has already been visited by another Mountie (Robert Kortmann) -- apparently the Northwest Police suspect the murderer, known as "the Wolf," is posing as one of their own. It turns out that this trooper is actually the Wolf himself, but he is not discovered until he tries to file a claim on a gold vein. Trooper Hammond helps crack the case and wins Jeanne's hand.
