An epic Oscar winning film shot in glorious Technicolor by Cecil B. DeMille, in which Louis Riel (Francis J. McDonald) tries to organize Indians and French settlers into a fighting force that will battle against the ruling British and the North West Mounted Police. One of Riel's associates, Jacques Corbeau (George Bancroft), is wanted for murder and is being pursued into Canada by Texas Ranger, Dusty Rivers (Gary Cooper).
Rivers joins up with the Mounties to pursue his outlaw but then falls for nurse April Logan (Madeleine Carroll), the beau of a stiff upper-lipped Mountie sergeant, Jim Brett (Preston S. Foster). But events overtake their rivalry when the rebels obtain a Gatling gun and April's brother, Ronnie Logan (Robert Preston), also a member of the North West Mounted Police, falls in love with Louvette (Paulette Goddard), a fiery vixen and 'half-breed' who is Corbeau's sister.
