Chinook the Wonder Dog, in its film debut, is more convincing here than the three main characters, performing such heroic tasks as knocking the guns out of bad men's hands, untying people who have been kidnaped, and other great deeds of derring-do. This is a slow-moving tale about Mountie

Grant and reformed crook Edwards, who join forces to catch some thieves. Edwards joins Grant, who was chasing him in the first place after a bank robbery is committed; the fugitive saves himself a jail sentence and goes straight, helping Grant and his dog. They finally uncover the real plot: a

banker is trying to swindle stockholders in a mining town. Plenty of shooting and chases, but in canoes not on horses. The Yukon territory provides some great background scenery. Unfortunately, it is stock footage for the most part, and ill-matched to the rest of the film. The dog is the real

star. Grant, hindered by an injury which forces him to use a cane, manages to get the redeemed Edwards and the beauteous Dalbert together with the aid of the pooch. He also sings one number, "A Shantyman's Life," which has nothing to do with the story line.
