Synopsis
THE SILVER HORDE
Boyd Emerson (Joel McCrea) and his pal Fraser (Raymond Hatton) are handed the opportunity of a lifetime when smitten copper mine mogul Cherry Malotte (Evelyn Brent) convinces her business partner (William Davidson) to bankroll their fishing venture in salmon-filled Alaskan waters. Though he and Fraser accept Cherry's help, Boyd is infatuated with Seattle socialite Mildred Wayland (Jean Arthur), whose father disapproves of Boyd, and consequently teams up with rival fishing mogul Frederick Marsh (Gavin Gordon) to sabotage Emerson's fishing operation. Not only does Marsh want Boyd out of the way in terms of business competition, he also wants to eliminate him as competition for Mildred's heart. An all out battle for fishing industry dominance ensues, and when things get physical, one of them winds up dead…

BIRD OF PARADISE
Johnny Baker (Joel McCrea) is a handsome military man who falls overboard in the South Seas and is rescued by Luana (Dolores Del Rio), the beautiful daughter of a Polynesian chieftain. The unlikely pair fall in love, but it is an ill-fated union. Luana is slated to be sacrificed to the island's volcano as an offering to the Polynesian god Pele. Though they initially try to escape, Luana accepts her fate in the end, realizing that she can never be a part of Johnny's life in white, Western civilization.

OUTPOST IN MOROCCO
Paul Gerard (George Raft), a captain in the Foreign Legion, accepts a mission to escort Cara (Marie Windsor), the prominent daughter of an emir, to her father's mountain fortress. The real purpose of Gerard's mission is to gather information about the emir's activities. It turns out that the Islamic leader's forces are on the brink of rebellion, and the captain must somehow protect his garrison from the rebels until reinforcements arrive. But that's the least of his concerns: Gerard has fallen helplessly in love with Cara, the enemy emir's daughter…

RENFREW OF THE ROYAL MOUNTED
Royal Mountie Sergeant Renfrew (James Newill) and his faithful dog Lightning are on the trail of some nasty counterfeiters that are printing bogus bills in Canada and then shipping them across the U.S. border in blocks of ice. The counterfeiters had forced a convicted engraver to make them a new plate, into which he inscribed a barely visible "help" message. Renfrew got his hands on one of the counterfeit bills, and in checking its legitimacy with a magnifying glass, he stumbled across the engraver's desperate message. Renfrew and his canine companion follow a trail of clues and wind up at the Totem Pole Lodge, the owner of which heads up the counterfeiting ring, to free the engraver and his innocent daughter, as well as to put the kibosh on the currency forging operation for good.
