| Undercover in the great northwest
Kermit Maynard and so many B picture cowboys did not get leading ladies from Hollywood's A list. But Maynard did so here albeit Ann Sheridan would get there in two years after Warner Brothers picked up her contract.

The Red Blood Of Courage is set in the great northwest of Canada and Maynard plays a mysterious stranger asking about a man reputed last seen in this vicinity.

That curiosity gets him shot at by folks who presumably had a hand in the disappearance of the guy he's inquiring after. But Maynard also runs into young Ann Sheridan who has been sent for by Reginald Barlow her uncle whom she hasn't seen in over a decade and he seems real anxious to get her hitched to Ben Hendricks who's a roughneck sort and works for Barlow. That prospect doesn't appeal to Ann who figures she can do a lot better. Remember this is the future Oomph Girl we're talking about.

I won't say more other than Sheridan who's a perfect Little Nell type heroine has some nasty schemes built around her marrying this slimeball.

There's a bit more plot involved here and sadly a lot of the film has been cut and you have to fill in the gaps. The film was shot outdoors with Big Bear Lake serving as the Canadian Northwest. I've noted that several B westerns seem to have been filmed here, it will look familiar to you if you've seen others.

A bit better than what you normally get from poverty row outfits like Ambassador Pictures which produced The Red Blood Of Courage. Still the editing is from hunger.
