Mrs Mike [from the book by Benedict and Nancy Freedman] is the story of a Boston girl who married a mountie and goes into the wilderness of Canada’s north-west territory to live.

The performances are splendid. Evelyn Keyes particularly shines in the title role with a portrayal that has excellent emotional depth and just the right touch of humor. As her co-star, Dick Powell is fine. He approaches his assignment as the conscientious mountie with understanding. He also supplies the narrative that bridges the footage.

Considerable stress is laid on wilderness perils and the tragedies that befall pioneers. The emotional gamut abounds in childbirth, epidemics, amputation and death, all experiences encountered by the real-life Mrs Michael Flannigan when she took to the northwoods in 1905.
