Storyline

Russ Evans, A WWII veteran army pilot, decides to check up on the widow of an old war buddy of his, Elaine Graham. The logging company she inherited is doing poorly, but Elaine gets an order in for a huge shipment of lumber. Russ and his friend Squirrel volunteer to help her cut the timber for the shipment, along with her friends Smacksie Golden and his girlfriend Lil Boggs, who are not used to doing physical labor. Russ pilots the plane to deliver the lumber before the company falls to a slimy businessman. An under-rated, highly enjoyable film with a great cast and witty dialogue. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

The title role in Timber Queen is played by Mary Beth Hughes who could lose her crown and realm due to the machinations of logging mill owner Charles Anthony Hughes. Fortunately for her she gets rescued from an unexpected source

Said source is Richard Arlen who was a Navy flier and who was invalided out of the service due to war wounds. Hughes is the widow of his best friend who was killed in the same action that Arlen received his wounds.

It's the usual kind of plot for these films, Charles Anthony Hughes is holding a note on the property and the trees there on and she has a set time to deliver logs or he takes them. With the help of Sheldon Leonard who is a shady character himself, Arlen takes on the task.

Timber Queen is from the Pine-Thomas B picture unit at Paramount and their product was always good. Even the worst of them are generally better than items from Monogram or PRC.

Acting honors here go to Sheldon Leonard who departs from his usual sinister image and plays the tough club owner for laughs. Leonard has a sidekick in George E. Stone and the two are quite funny together.

And Mary Beth Hughes is enough to keep up anyone's morale during the war years when Timber Queen came out. June Havoc is in this also and she has some good lines as she and Leonard strike a few sparks. This may be the only Sheldon Leonard ever got the girl in a film.
