He Stays Incognito
15 August 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I doubt we'll ever see a director's cut of Park Avenue Logger, I saw a version that had some 17 minutes cut from it. Still I was able to fill in the gaps and we got the kind of B programmer that was released by RKO Pictures that probably was a second feature to a Katharine Hepburn or an Astaire/Rogers film.

The title role is played by George O'Brien whose dad is worried about his son becoming a sissy. Even with the build on O'Brien who definitely was one of the best physical specimens in Hollywood, father is worried about that. Unbeknownst to dad O'Brien is a professional wrestler known as the Masked Marvel and the mask keeps him incognito.

George stays incognito when dad decides to send him up to his Oregon lumber camp to learn the business that got dad his millions. While there he discovers a nasty scheme between his father's foreman Willard Robertson and a rival camp's foreman Ward Bond to bilk both his father and rival owner Beatrice Roberts of lots of money and in the case of Roberts her own land. George also falls big time for Roberts the logging queen of the Northwest.

Bert Hanlon has a nice part as company cook and company agitator for Roberts. Park Avenue Logger is a nice routine action programmer that used a lot of stock logging footage blended nicely in with the players. Not as good as Warner Brothers Valley Of The Giants, but they had a much bigger budget to work with. Might have been better had I seen the whole film rather than a butchered version.
