Be forewarned that "Captain (King of Dogs) "and "Dynamite (The Wonder Horse) " are billed above all of the cast except John Preston (who?), which means RCMP Sergeant Bruce Morton (John Preston) is going to spend a lot of time talking to Dynamite (Dynamite the Horse) and Captain (Captain King of Dogs) , and the scary thing is they react better than most of the cast. Inspector Dawson (Harry Beery) promises "Morton of the Mounted" a long-awaited vacation as soon as he solves the mystery of who killed an old fur trapper called Old Dan Parker (Fred Parker) and a Mountie named McGee. Morton and his Mountie sidekick Corporal Tiny Anderson (Tiny Skelton) hit the tundra and Morton, or the dog or the horse or all three, save Mildred Boynton (Myrla Bratton) from a tormentor.

One helpless Mountie
25 May 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Timber Terrors which in the true tradition of B films from poverty row studios has a title with nothing to do with the plot. This concerns a gang out in the Northwest Territory who rob a payroll and kill a Mountie. That means they're hunted forever and ever till they get their man.

John Preston plays Sgt. Morton of the Royal Mounted and he along with most of the rest of the cast can't act worth anything. But he does look good and too bad Timber Terrors was not in color in that Mountie costume.

He's also one helpless Mountie without his trusty dog Captain and King the Wonder Horse. Without them he would have lasted two reels. No wonder they get the billing they do.

The animals are the best performers here.
