The story of the 1890s community of Bordertown (formerly known as Pemmican) where the US-Canadian border straddled the town's Main street.

Royal Mountie Corporal Clive Bennett (John H. Brennan) and US Marshal Jack Craddock (Richard Comar) maintained the peace in this 49th parallel town (whose western border was surveyed in 1880). The border actually ran through the middle of the local enforcement office.

Both Clive and Jack courted the attentions of the lovely widow Marie Dumont (Sophie Barjac), the town's physician and proprietor of the general store. Marie's husband, Jacque (a doctor) died after both of them had arrived from Paris, France.

Marshall Jack Craddock is former gunfighter/Texas Ranger. He fought on the side of the Confederacy in the war between the states.

Corporal Clive Bennett is an idealistic member of the North West Mounted Police. Before coming to Bordertown, he was stationed in Toronto, Ontario.


Other citizens of Bordertown included:

  • Donna Carroll White as Joanna Radway, widowed  local ranch owner and head of the Women for Temperance Committee.
  • Duncan Frasier as Zack Denny, the owner of the town's saloon
  • Beverly Elliot as Sally Duffield, an employee at Marie's general store and proprietress of the local boardinghouse.
  • Paul Batten as Wendell MacWherter (Paul Batten),  the banker and owner of the livery stable. He is Sally Duffield's suitor.
