Indians leave two boys orphans who then grow up raised by a Canadian Mountie. The two have vastly different interests. One, Lundigan, wants to be a Mountie while the other, Craig, has a penchant for heavy gambling. After being cheated, Craig vows revenge on the sleazy owner of the town's

gambling establishment. He returns a few years later with his pal, now a Mountie in charge of keeping the peace. Craig wins the whole gambling house playing roulette but ends up committing two murders. While Lundigan still loves his "brother," he is forced to carry out his duty and kills Craig in

a gun battle. Craig was MGM's hope to take the place of Clark Gable who had joined the Army Air Corps that year soon after the tragic death of his wife, Carole Lombard, in an air crash. Craig had the same muscularity, manner, and voice as Gable. He turned in a robust performance in NORTHWEST

RANGERS, but he never rose above being a star of the second magnitude.
