Randolph Scott is the man who saves the railroad from angry fur traders and even angrier Indians in this Nat Holt production. Filmed on location in the Canadian Rockies, this frontier drama has all the hallmarks of a Holt and Scott collaboration: grand vistas, stunning action and the rugged skill of a Scott portrayal. Jane Wyatt and Nancy Olson play the other two corners of the love triangle that balances the action scenes. But it's Scott who's center stage as the surveyor and trouble-shooter for the railroad crew, nearing the end of construction of the famed route. Natives and locals are fearful of what this form of progress will mean for them and are manipulated by an influential fur trader (Victor Jory) to sabotage the final construction. Jory and Scott have a personal feud going, as well, to add to the drama. Trapped on the construction line by Indians and Jory's henchmen, dodging bullets and exploding kegs of dynamite, Scott is rescued in the nick of time by a locomotive.
