Description by OLDIES.com:

Canadian Mountie Matt O'Brien encounters Kate Owens, an arrogant American who is stranded in the wilderness en route to visit her uncle. Reluctantly, Matt escorts Kate to Canoga Valley, where he has been assigned to investigate some strange phenomena; a missing sergeant, unexplained gunfire, and a stream that has suddenly run dry. Before they reach town, Kate is robbed of the $20,000 she was carrying, and the ensuing deadly shoot-out leaves everyone in town suspect. Ignoring official orders to return home, O'Brien takes it upon himself to unravel the mystery, and uncovers a ruthless conspiracy that reaches deeper than anyone could have imagined.

Indomitable Trooper O'Brien is played by popular B-western hero and character actor Bob Steele, whose career began in the silent film era and spanned several decades. Northwest Trail remains one of his few films shot in color.

Rating 4.0 He always gets his man Movie Lover: from The Bijou US -- November, 21, 2009

Northwest Trail stars western legend Bob Steele as a non-singing Candian Mountie who gets involved in some mysterious doings around a lumber camp in the Canadian Northwest. He encounters super hot Joan Woodbury, who plays a spoiled rich girl with what looks like a 1939 Cadilac with engine trouble. Now, in real life, after assisting the smoking Ms Woodbury, they probably would have wandered over to a trappers cabin and spent some time steaming up the windows, but this is , after all, Hollywood and this is super straight arrow Bob Steele, so there are more pressing issues at hand.
This movie plays a lot like a postwar Roy Rodgers movie, that is , a simple good guys vs bad guys flick with some strange mysteries thrown in. Nioe scenery (the pine forests of the Norhtwest and MS Woodbury) and a couple of familar faces("Great Ceasar's Ghost, is that John Hamilton?") make for an enjoyable hour escape.


Rating 1.5 Modern day western Movie Lover: from Middle Village, NY US -- February, 21, 2009

Filmed in an earlt color process, this "western" takes place in the Canadian west in the late 1940's. The film's three-quarters of the way done before you find out what's going on and by then you've probably lost interest. Not one of Bob Steele's best! (And that is Charles Middelton, ever famous for playing Ming in the Flash Gordon serials, playing a French Canadian with a terrible accent.)
