~Plot Synopsis~
When dignified silent-film leading man Conway Tearle appeared in a short series of "B" westerns in
the 1930s, many of his fans considered it a step downward. In fact, Tearle had already tried to
establish himself as a virile "outdoors" performer in such silent adventures as Smoke Bellew. The
story takes place in Alaska, where Kit "Smoke" Bellew (Tearle) has pitched camp in hopes of
forgetting his troublesome past. He succeeds in this endeavor when he helps leathery prospector
Shorty (Mark Hamilton) strike gold in them thar hills. Bellew also finds lasting happiness in the arms
of the prospector's pretty daughter Joy (Barbara Bedford).
