seen this movie a long time ago would like to find it
9 June 2004 | by (midwest) – See all my reviews

this is an action packed movie the acting was first rate the story line mostly believable. Alan Ladd plays the competent but harried owner of a custom combine crew. Robert Preston is his buddy Jim ,a rift develops between the two when they meet Dorothy Lamour {Fay}.Jim and Fay pair off together and begin stealing from the farmers to support Fays expensive tastes.Joe(Alan Ladd)stands by Jim even when confronted with evidence that Jim is stealing. in an exciting conclusion Jim and Joe have to work together to escape the wrath of angry farmers, that sees them blocking the road with there combines from the back of their moving trucks! any way its a good old movie id like to see it again.
