Storyline

Tenderfoot Bruce Corrigan goes to a lumber camp employment office and signs on with thirty other men to work at the Hamilton outfit, despite its reputation as a dangerous place. When they leave the office, James Lester, the supervisor of the rival camp owned by Daniel Carson, offers the men more pay to work for Carson. Only Bruce refuses and punches Lester for his underhanded maneuvering. While walking through the woods to the camp, Bruce meets and flirts with June, the daughter of McRae, who was the deceased John Hamilton's partner. Bruce then goes to the camp, where he overhears a telephone conversation between McRae and Lang, the operation's money man, during which it becomes clear that the outfit is going bankrupt.

Well, There's A Woman, Anyway

William Gargan wanders through the woods, gets a job as a logger, makes erratic stabs at romancing Molly Lamont and intermittently tries to thwart the bad guys in competition with his boss. It's a fairly standard logging picture, but it's directed at a good clip by Lewis Collins, even if the editing cuts some muscle along with the fat from the story. It's most interesting for its views of logging. Parts of it were shot on Vancouver Island, and there's some spectacular shots of men topping trees, and logs splashing into water.

It's one of a dozen or so quota quickies from Kenneth Bishop, shot in the Vancouver area for distribution in Great Britain. Columbia Pictures wanted to distribute in Great Britain, but needed cheap product shot in the Empire, using British personnel.... and that included Australians, South Africans and Canadians. Harry Cohn's solution was to bankroll Bishop under a separate corporate name, ship up some cheap stars for name recognition, and distribute the product pretty much anywhere English was spoken. Usually the results were pretty sluggish. This one is ok.
