One arm guard
16 November 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Freckles marks Andrew McLaglen's third feature film and it's the third remake of Gene Stratton Porter's novel about a one handed orphan kid who goes to work for a lumber baron played here by veteran western heavy Roy Barcroft.

Barcroft takes a liking to young Martin West and gives him a job riding herd on the trees lest they be cut down by another logging outfit, specifically the one run by Steven Peck. Good thing it wasn't his shooting arm lost.

Some nice color cinematography from Big Bear Lake is the real star of Freckles. The young leads of West and Carol Christiansen are attractive.

And you also get a chance to see not only Barcroft, but Jack Lambert as a good guy for a change.
