Storyline

Tim Shipman returns to his father's logging company only to find his father has been killed, money is owed, and Croft Brunner controls the railroad used to haul out the logs.

Refusing to sell, Tim makes plans to somehow get the timber out. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Dated melodrama, fun to watch anyway.
16 November 1999 | by (Montana) – See all my reviews

Unusual today, as a logger is the good guy! (Of course, so is the villain.) Some good footage of Shay-powered logging trains in operation; log rafts, and the like. The story and acting style are dated, but there's a nice supporting performance by Hoagy Carmichael and a great character by Adolphe Menjou.
