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.

Trivia

The Song, "Aura Lea," was popularized with new lyrics "Love Me Tender" by Elvis Presley, Ken Darby and Vera Matson in 1956. When Come and Get It (1936) was released, another song. "Aura Lee," by Hugo Frey, was published with a picture of Frances Farmer on its cover. However, the song she sings in the movie has music and lyrics from the older song. See more »

Topnotch Acting Enlivens Lumber Tale
21 April 2002 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An aging lumber tycoon tries to relive his youth after meeting the hauntingly beautiful daughter of an old friend.

Based on the sprawling novel by Edna Ferber, COME AND GET IT is a fascinating love story, filled with action & tenderness and some very good acting. The production values are on a high order, with the authentic logging sequence especially exciting.

Boisterous, brash & bold, Edward Arnold portrays the brawling two-fisted lumberjack who pushes himself to the top of the heap, trampling on his one great love in the process. Although completely unbelievable as a young man during the first three-quarters of an hour, this is not a problem as he is never anything less than enjoyable in the role.

Miss Frances Farmer, playing a tenderhearted floozy and her own ambitious daughter, has the best film of her career. She is nothing less than radiant and her obvious talent makes her bizarre personal history all that much more tragic.

Wonderful Walter Brennan plays Arnold's jovial Swedish pal, in a performance that would catapult him out of cinematic anonymity and earn him the first of his three Oscars for Best Supporting Actor. Seemingly able to play any kind of part - as long as the character was middle-aged or elderly - during his 46 years in movies & television Mr. Brennan would become one of America's most beloved character actors. He died in 1974 at the age of 80.

Almost obscured by the oversized talents around him, Joel McCrea wisely turns in an understated performance as Arnold's quiet, intelligent son (he invents the disposable paper cup!). His years of solid successes in front of the cameras were adding up and he would soon become a major Hollywood star.

A quartet of fine actresses fill smaller roles: Mary Nash as Arnold's neglected wife; Andrea Leeds as his adored daughter; Mady Christians as Brennan's sturdy, sensible niece; and Cecil Cunningham as Arnold's intuitive, sharp-tongued secretary. That's porcine Edwin Maxwell once again playing a bad guy, this time the crooked owner of a lumber camp saloon.

The song which is used as the theme for Miss Farmer's characters is ‘Aura Lee,' (written in 1861 by W. W. Fosdick & George R. Poulton) a very popular strain on both sides during the War Between The States. Decades later, in the 1950's, Elvis Presley would use the tune for one of his biggest hits, ‘Love Me Tender.'
