Warner's TIGER SHARK plot -- usually with Edward G. Robinson in the lead and a top director like Howard Hawks or Raoul Walsh directing -- gets the B treatment among lumberjacks . Stanley Field, of course, doesn't have the range of Robinson, but John Payne is fine in an early outing as the juvenile lead, and Gloria Dickson is absolutely terrific. She never got out of the Bs, and was working for Columbia when she died in a fire at her home four years later, alas.

This feature is one of the very short, one-hour second features that Warner Brothers produced under Briney Foy in the pre-war period. Overall, it's a good, workmanlike piece.
