Storyline

Jefferson Russett runs a logging company; his brother, Steve, is the prodigal son. Jeff cuts off his allowance and puts him to work, but on his first day, he is tricked into signing a contract allowing arch-rivals Barton Logging to use Russett railways. Jeff hauls Steve up to the logging camp, but he steals a plane. It runs out of gas in Barton territory, where spitfire Jo is running the camp. Naturally, this shrew must be tamed, so Steve, calling himself Steve Martin, sets out to do just that as he's trapped in the camp for two months until the next boat anyhow.

OK of its kind; great color
16 April 2005 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

George Brent is a ne'er-do-well who learns to be a man in logging country. Beverly Roberts is the head of a logging company Brent goes to work for, and he predictably falls for her, although God knows why. Roberts has the personality of a mackerel, and hair to boot. Some rousing action sequences, and a dilly of a fight between two competing logging gangs at the finale. Great early use of Technicolor. These logging films were a staple of Hollywood from the silent era right into the 1950s, when they finally fell out of favor as films finally went outside for good. The closest we've had to one of these flicks in recent years was FIRE FROM THE SKY, which used the backdrop of a remote logging operation to tell the story of a supposed UFO abduction. Legendary character actors Laird Cregar and Alan Hale provide solid support to the dashing and debonair Mr. Brent, who had a very long career in Hollywood and continued to act until the year before his death, in 1979. Today, interestingly, he is forgotten.
