Synopsis:
U.S. Marshall Gene Autry and his deputy Scat Russell cross into Canada while pursuing bank robbers Pierre LaBlond and Raoul Duval. They meet wounded Canadian Mounted Policeman Terry Dillon, whose partner has been murdered by the bandits, and take him to a cabin where they meet Duval's niece, Marie. Jack Duval, Marie's brother, hates all peace officers and regards LaBlond as his hero. The elder Duval and Batiste are captured by the Mounties in a raid, which uncovers stolen U.S. gold bullion. LaBlond frees the bandits and forces Marie to flee with him. Angered, Jack helps Gene and the Mounties wipe out LaBlond and his gang in a vicious gunfight.
