The Yukon Patrol (1942) as [John] Kettler
Canadian Tom Merritt (Stanley Andrews) has discovered a substance, Compound X, that will cure infantile paralysis, which he extracts from a mine at Caribou, Canada. A country at war with Canada (unnamed because while Canada and the British Empire were at war with Germany, the USA "officially" wasn't in 1940) discovers that Compound X also contains magnetic properties which will make their mines effective against the British fleet, and dispatch one of their intelligence officers, John Kettler (Robert Strange), to work undercover to ensure a steady stream of Compound X for the Fatherland. RCMP Major Ross King (Herbert Rawlinson) is killed in a fray against Kettler's henchmen, and his son, RCMP Sergeant Dave King (Allan Lane) continues on in his place in command of the Mountie post. The foreign agents open a "sham" sanitarium, supposedly to help paralysis victims, but actually to ship the gathered quantities of Compound X abroad to their warring country. Sergeant King discovers the fraud and exposes "Dr. Shelton" (John Davidson), the sham head of the hospital.

In an effort to recover the fuse caps, the enemy agents kidnap Linda Merritt (Lita Conway), sister of RCMP Corporal Tom Merritt,Jr.(Robert Kellard).
