    Anyone interested in the lumber business will like this film. Arnold is excellent as a self- made lumber tycoon who clashes with son McCrea for Farmer in what is her best role; Brennan won the first Best Supporting Actor Oscar as Arnold's Swedish pal. I found the romance between McCrea and Farmer predictable and boring, however the early rough- housing scenes are the best part of the film in my opinion. This film is lively, but dull at times. I give it a 3.5/5.

    Like several of the previous reviewers I watched this movie out of Frances Farmer curiosity, but it had the added hook of its being directed by Howard Hawks AND William Weyler. It's rare enough to have two directorial credits on a film, and even rarer to have the two be equally great (in my opinion. I know the French auteurist crowd disdains Weyler and venerates Hawks, but they can go gag on a mise en scene) and almost unheard of to have the two great directors be so dissimilar in style; Hawks the master of banter and pacing, Weyler a much more somber director. And sure enough the film is an interesting if discordant combination of logging highjincks, complete with bar fights, tough saloon girls and loyal Swedish sidekicks (presumably Hawks' contribution) and a midwestern Gothic family drama (presumably Weyler's) that starts to assert itself halfway through and eventually overwhelms the earlier tone. It really is two movies back to back, which is not really my cup of tea, however I'll give it a solid B for Edward Arnold's performance in the lead. It's good to see this fine actor, too often typecast as the stereotypical heavy (no pun intended; Arnold was a big guy), carry the movie with a nuanced performance as a Dreisarian tycoon who finally sees that there are limits to his desires and ambitions. As for Frances Farmer, she more than passes the test. Good actress. Especially in her earlier incarnation as a typically Hawksian girl/man.

  • Fine performances.

    I watched this out of interest in Edna Ferber novels and Frances Farmer's sad life, and I was not disappointed in the script or the lead performances. What surprised me was Andrea Lees as "Evvie," what a captivating, gentle, soft voiced actress! I hope to see more of her on TCM.

    Edward Arnold at his best. Fine cast and presentation make this movie compelling to watch. Frances Farmer is one of the most beautiful and talented actresses in Hollywood history. Sadly, her life was a tragedy.

  • Wonderful Movie!!

    This was only the second time I have seen this film and I wish you would show it more often. I LOVE IT!! Not enough is said about Edward Arnold who was a fabulous character ator. Please show more of his films. All the other actors were wonderful also, and that gorgeous Joel McCrea. I have always been a big fan of Walter Brennan. Thanks TCM.

    Edward Arnold is one of the best. And what a supporting cast ! Francis Farmer is breathtaking. A young Joel McCrea...what a handsom lad. Walter Brennan, the ever authentic actor. And Mady Christians...

  • What a Pleasant Suprise!

    I happened to come across this movie by chance. I never saw a movie with Frances Farmer and was not even familiar with Edward Arnold. What a great suprise. The acting was wonderful and the movie was heart warming. A must see. The last minute of the movie just wrapped it all together for me. Try to cathc this one on TCM.
