All in a Day's Work for a Canadian Mounted Policeman . . .
Two Time Oscar Award winner John Beach Litel was born in Albany, Wisconsin in 1892. On August 3, 1914, France was drawn into World War One. It wouldn’t be until April of 1917 that America would enter that war, but John Litel couldn’t wait. He traveled to France and joined the French fighting forces, and during his fighting years he was decorated for bravery not once, but twice.
In this Canadian Mounted Police adventure, he is Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman Sergeant Means, stationed at a small outpost in the north wilderness of Canada. Whitey Yeager runs the trading post there, and a few cabins nearby house a few rugged fellows building their life in the great outdoors.
Trooper O’Brien, played by Bob Steele, is tasked with the job of escorting a beautiful young lady, played by Joan Woodbury, up to this remote area to visit her father, who is trying to purchase a large plot of land and begin cutting timber for use in the States. John Hamilton, famous for being the editor of the Daily Planet in the 1950’s Superman television series, plays the part of the father of the young lady that Trooper O’Brien is escorting.
The young lady does not tell Trooper O’Brien that she is bringing a large amount of cash up to her father to pay for the land and the men working the land, and it is stolen by an outlaw on horseback. Trooper O’Brien will try to help Trooper Means, played by John Litel, find the missing money, but for some curious reason the Trooper stationed at the small outpost not only refuses the young Trooper’s offer of aid, but orders him to leave the outpost and return to his own post at once. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
