Storyline

Lumberjack Joe MacKinley (Preston Foster) inherits a valuable tract of forest-land which is coveted by a large lumber company. He and his new bride, Helen (Kay Buckley), start a logging operation but quickly run into trouble because of a series of sabotage-events, staged to look like accidents by their foreman, Gus Williams (William Bishop), who is working for the lumber-combine. Joe is nearly broke and about to sell out cheaply when an old friend, Bill Shaw (Wayne Morris), comes to his rescue as a partner. To force the partners to sell, William starts a forest fire. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Rough Guys and Dames
9 November 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

This is the first of two movies that Preston Foster and Wayne Morris starred in for Columbia. In both they played rough-and-tough buddies, like Spencer Tracy & Clark Gable for MGM or Jimmy Cagney & Pat O'Brien for Warners a decade and a half earlier. They've even got Frank McHugh, who often played Cagney's stooge, as Foster's chief cook and bottle washer.

In this one, Foster and Morris are a couple of Big Timber men. Foster owns a logging site, but there's a dame, of course. Foster is married to Kay Buckley, a blonde who likes her comforts and wants Foster to sell out to the big combine.

There's the usual combination of casual rowdy behavior that typifies this sort of movie and there's nothing done that isn't competent. On the other hand, there isn't much that's particularly noteworthy. The result is a decent time-killer.
