I did not expect so much from this one. It seems it was produced by the little company whose films were released by Twentieth Century Fox. Pictures shot in Cinemascope and still grade B pictures...
This one was shot on locations, Oregon I suppose. Splendid settings. The actors are not Academy Awards level but I was amazed to find Roy Barcroft again, and Jack Lambert too. I will never forget Barcroft as the heaviest bad guy of the Republic serials. His voice is recognizable among a thousand. Martin West, I did not know him...His character is interesting too, as a poor boy who lost his right - or left, sorry - hand.
The story about fight among lumber men. It reminds me a french movie called "Les Grandes Gueules". Perhaps the french feature was inspired by the American one, shot five years earlier.
So, if you can catch it, don't miss.
