Lumberjacks
3 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Thunder In The Pines finds George Reeves and Ralph Byrd as a pair of Lumberjacks who work hard and play harder. Both are not the brightest of men though they know their trade. A French floozy breezes through town played by Denise Darcel and pretty soon both are in heat over here and the rivalry becomes less friendly. Logging baron and local saloon owner Lyle Talbot is prepared to take full advantage.

Lots of nice scenery of logging and the film is somewhat educational in that we learn a whole lot about the business of cutting and shipping those trees. As for the comedy it's as rough as the comedy in a John Ford film. Would that Thunder In The Pines was a quarter as good as any Ford film.

Still there's a bit of amusement value here.
