| Enjoyed this film
Out of the two dozen films I watched this past weekend, this was the one I enjoyed the most. It is early technicolor and seeing the magnificent redwood trees was great. Wayne Morris delivers in the role of the timberman who has 21st century conservation values of not cutting too much and reforestation. Bickford is okay as the greedy villain. Claire Trevor is in cohoots with Bickford at the beginning but switches sides near the end. Alan Hale is a joy in his role as Ox and a real scene stealer. I believe I caught my favorite - Clem Bevans - in just a few seconds of screen time and Jerry Colona was a saloon singer extraordinaire. Other familiar character actors included Russell Simpson, Frank McHugh, Donald Crisp, and John Litel. This film is a treasure trove of character actors.
