Logging Timber, Fighting Forest Fire, Romancing Susan Morrow!
16 July 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The strong performances of Agnes Moorehead as a widowed country land owner and William Demarest as her suitor are the best things in this colorful adventure, which stars John Payne. Some familiar supporting players also help move the movie along, and Susan Morrow plays Miss Moorehead's niece,and Mr Payne's love interest, of course. There is logging scenes, wide open country shots, and as the title implies, a big fire. A fairly good 90 minute 'B' movie action adventure (good drive-in material).
