Funny, Enjoyable

A funny, entertaining B movie about two loggers, played by George Reeves and Ralph Byrd, who are competing to move logs and win the hand of a faithless girl. Lyle Talbot plays the oily crook who tries to fix the competition and steal the girl. Reeves, who later gained fame playing Superman, was a good comedian with an easy manner in front of the camera. Byrd, who had been Dick Tracy in a number of serials, was a less engaging actor, but the two men seemed to have a good time playing off each other. Nice footage of the North Woods and logging operations, even if it appeared to be canned.
