Storyline

In 1884 lumberman Barney Glasgow leaves his true love, saloon singer Lotta Morgan, to marry Emma Louise, his boss's daughter. His buddy Swan Bostrom marries Lotta instead. Barney becomes a lumber magnate by stripping the Wisconsin forests, without re-planting. After 23 years, Barney finally visits Swan. Lotta has died, but Barney is smitten by their daughter Lotta Bostrom, who looks almost like her mother. His lavish attentions to Lotta create gossip and a rivalry between Barney and his son Richard.

Worth Getting
19 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

A lumber entrepreneur leaves his true love and marries a woman from a well-to-do family so that he can become rich. Having achieved fame and fortune, he has another chance to pursue that lost love. Fine drama based on Ferber story is well acted by all, including Arnold as the lumber tycoon, McCrea as his son, Brennan in an Oscar-winning performance as Arnold's Swedish (!) buddy, and the radiant Farmer in the dual role of mother and daughter. Hawks had a falling out with the producer and was replaced by Wyler. With the two masters behind the camera, one can't go wrong. It starts with some pretty impressive scenes of lumber being cut and transported via the river.
