This is the original custom combining movie, made not long after the original Massey-Harris Harvest Brigade of World War II, back when men were men and work was work and movies were movies. Every custom combining movie should have a fire or a tornado, and this one has a fire. It's rather realistic. Alan Ladd is famous for Shane. Robert Preston is famous for The Music Man and has had a lot of roles. This movie proves that a good man doesn't need an extravagant, spoiled, lazy, conniving woman. The climax of Wild Harvest is releasing a combine off the back of a speeding truck. Massey-Harris collectors have a magazine called Wild Harvest.
