I received this movie, North West Mounted Police, from my daughter as a Christmas present via GoZillaflix/Amazon...and was thoroughly pleased with the quality of the DVD...good color, sound, no skips, et al. I have to admit that I had read some negative feedback on a couple of other DVDs by viewers...so was curious to what I would receive. I can strongly recommend to anyone whom would like a very good old western movie with Gary Cooper at his best based upon what I received...to purchase this movie. I plan on purchasing other "hard to get" old westerns, et al from GoZillaflix in the future. The movie had great scenery; lots of action and a great cast of actors...and was a great old hard to get movie...one that I had seen as a youngster and one that I wanted to add to my Gary Cooper collection.

Gary Cooper at his best. Cooper plays a Texas Ranger chasing his prey in the North of Canada. Teamed with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police he is on the trail of murderer wanted in the United States. The action is great and the acting is superb. If you ever saw The Plainsman, this has all the same elements; except in this one Cooper gets his man, not shot dead. A collector's must.

I have been looking for this movie for several years. I remember it from TCM many years ago and wanted a copy for myself. Gary Cooper once again turns in an excellent performance and Preston Foster is the perfect and handsome Mountie. I believe they actually based "Sgt Preston of the Yukon" on his character.

It was fun to see Preston Foster and Robert Preston in the same movie as they were always getting mixed up, and you can't discount Madeleine Carroll, Paulette Goddard and others as they all gave fine performances. Not to mention the fabulous scenery.

This pretty much has it all: Cooper, beautiful women, great character actors, magnificent action scenes, splended scenery, and wonderful photography. In short, it's well worth watching. A fun film to see, and Preston is always great, as is Cooper. A terrific movie dealing with loyalty and the consequences of betrayal.

A colorful, exciting old fashioned Western type movie set in Canada. It doesn't have all of today's visual and sound effects but the story is interesting, and there is excitement, good interpersonal relationships, and brilliant Technicolor. It is very worthwhile.The DVD is clean and without defects---it says that it has been digitally remastered. It arrived promptly, Very satisfied with the company that made and sent me this copy.

This DVD is like a visual historical novel. In the Northwest Territory of Canada, during 1885, there was an uprising of the half-breeds. There was a half-breed leader by the name of Jacque Corbeau and a pretender known as Louis Real. As a producer Cecil B. DeMille (The Unconquered, The Bucaneer), provided another movie that combines Hollywood improvisation with history that reveals civilization as it was. The half-breeds did try to incite native Canadian Indians to join their uprising - and failed. The authentic portrayal of the NCMP (Northwest Canadian Mounted Police) in terms of protocol, uniforms and discipline were superb. It is historic fact the Hudson Bay Co. shared forts with the NCMP. It was quite common to have Indians, traders, trappers and half-breeds around those forts during the day, and to be escorted outside in the evening. Regardless of age, any viewer can learn what it was like in 19th Century Canada. Preston Foster and Robert Preston were exceptional in portrayal of a NCMP. Gary Cooper acted in the role of Texas Ranger. It was not unusual for our Law Enforcement to chase criminals across the border into Canada, and , a historical reality revealed about the excellent international relations the USA has with our Canadian neighbors and allies for decades.

I try to make it my business to purchase movies that says ...Cecil B. DeMille, he was a one of a kind producer and director! Add to that one Gary Cooper and the movie becomes a MUST for those of us who truly enjoy ethical purity, history and correctness...I am elated...

I have long sought this classic in DVD and it was worth the wait. Although 73 years old and not remastered it still looks good on my 65" rear projection TV played through my latest BluRay player. There is just something about these old movies, even though politically incorrect there was a wholesomness to movies from the 40s. It was a different country then and these movies reflect it. This is one of my favorite Gary Cooper movies of all times and something you can enjoy with the whole family.
