Average Early Talkie Outdoor Drama Potboiler
7 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Viewed this film online, but have also seen this on Ebay available for purchase. This is an early talkie outdoor logging drama potboiler with an average cast, but noticeable is John Wayne in an early role. The main thrust of the story takes place in a logging town and the rivalry of the different factions of landowners to control the river and the woman in the middle (Helen Chandler). Helen Chandler's character is stuck in the logging town and she wants to get out and experience life, if not a dance, where she can wear the prettiest dress (big dreams Helen!). There ends up a death, another shooting, accusation of murder, betrayal and a confession that wraps up this potboiler in less than an hours time. John Wayne is seen briefly in the beginning as a lumberjack, look for him fast but you cannot miss him since he is taller than everyone else in the scene.
