MovieMail exclusive - Rick Burin rides with the Mounties in a Cecil B. DeMille jaunt full of broad characterisations, explosive action, sexual treachery and imperialist tub-thumping.
North West Mounted Police could only have been created by one filmmaker.
Full of half-remembered truths, enthusiastic embellishments, broad characterisations, explosive action sequences, sexual treachery, imperialist tub-thumping and sentiment so thick you could pitch a flag in it, it is unmistakably the work of Cecil B. DeMille.
Gary Cooper, surely the epitome of the Golden Age star, is cast as Dusty Rivers, a Texas Ranger on the trail of a murderous revolutionary (former silent leading man George Bancroft).
Cooper was a delightful performer, and he’s in his element here. Laconic, guileless and still charmingly boyish, he creates moments of quiet levity through a largely unheralded gift for comedy and – when the occasion demands – elicits goose bumps thanks to a beguiling sincerity.
Really though, the movie is just great fun, with jaw-dropping stunt work, a gaggle of eclectic set-pieces, sumptuous Technicolor cinematography shot on location in the Canadian Rockies – and a simply extraordinary supporting cast.
Cecil B. DeMille's first film in Technicolor, North West Mounted Police was filmed on location in the Canadian Rockies, and tells the story of a Texas Ranger, played by Gary Cooper, who joins forces with the North West Mounted Police to put down a rebellion. Paulette Goddard and Madeleine Carroll co-star.
