| The CCC makes men
Blazing Barriers concerns a pair of kids on the lam from an attempted robbery who grab a freight train and get way out in the country. On the road like so many kids in the 30s they happen to come across a camp for Civilian Conservation Corps youth. Frank Coghlan and Edward Arnold, Jr. figure this is a good place to hide out until the heat is off.

And of course they get involved with the CCC both in reclaiming the land and their paramilitary sense of discipline. Watching this film I thought of CCC youth in the 30s and how those who were involved with it transitioned to army life in the 40s.

This programmer for Monogram is a salute to one of the most popular of New Deal programs. We could use it now in fact.
