Storyline

In 1884 lumberman Barney Glasgow leaves his true love, saloon singer Lotta Morgan, to marry Emma Louise, his boss's daughter. His buddy Swan Bostrom marries Lotta instead. Barney becomes a lumber magnate by stripping the Wisconsin forests, without re-planting. After 23 years, Barney finally visits Swan. Lotta has died, but Barney is smitten by their daughter Lotta Bostrom, who looks almost like her mother. His lavish attentions to Lotta create gossip and a rivalry between Barney and his son Richard.

Review for "Come And Get It"
27 April 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Come And Get It is a wonderful piece of filmwork. The psychological aspects that go on in this film are way ahead of 1936 thinking. And who can ignore Frances Farmer's star turn as both mother and daughter. One cannot dismiss the obvious talent that Frances Farmer possessed. Edward Arnold is equally adept at playing Barney Glasgow. However, actor Joel Mccrea clearly lacks the acting chops to keep upwith his co-stars. Obvious in the scene with FF when she is cooking the candy. A brighter, more aware and gifted actor would have proved an asset...but nevertheless..the film holds up after the years. And proves that Hollywood's much ballyhooed "golden era" is justified!
