Tree loggers of America, unite!
21 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

The "love quartet" aspect of "River Lady" (rich, power-driven Yvonne De Carlo and precocious Helena Carter love rugged tree logger Rod Cameron, crooked businessman Dan Duryea loves Yvonne) is slight and banal, though Helena Carter glows in one of her first roles, and this must be one of the very few instances where (SPOILER!) Yvonne De Carlo doesn't get her man! More interesting is the "business" aspect of the film: the independent loggers fighting collectively against the syndicate that wants to monopolize the market (and drive their wages down). Also interesting are the scenes of the actual process of tree-cutting and log-transporting streaming down the river. A compliment I can pay to this movie is that it looks like it could have been made in the 1950s, but the actual production date is 1948. **1/2 out of 4.
