Storyline

Lumberjack Joe MacKinley (Preston Foster) inherits a valuable tract of forest-land which is coveted by a large lumber company. He and his new bride, Helen (Kay Buckley), start a logging operation but quickly run into trouble because of a series of sabotage-events, staged to look like accidents by their foreman, Gus Williams (William Bishop), who is working for the lumber-combine. Joe is nearly broke and about to sell out cheaply when an old friend, Bill Shaw (Wayne Morris), comes to his rescue as a partner. To force the partners to sell, William starts a forest fire. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Timber Rififi

I like timber, forest, lumberjack movies. I don't know why. Robert Enrico's LES GRANDES GUEULES, Joseph Kane's TIMBERJACK and SPOILERS OF THE FOREST, Andrew Mac Laglen's FRICKLES, and many many more. Maybe because they are all been shot mostly on locations, and not entirely in studios. This one brings not much to the genre. It's a man's story. The sequence where Wayne Morris and Preston Foster get drunk together, as real pals, and wake up afterwards before fight against each other in the pure John Ford style, this scene is very amusing, I would say exquisite. Some good action sequences, the forest fire is the climax of this pretty well done adventure flick.

Ray Nazarro made mostly westerns, desert movies, and not forest ones...
