The Pretty Girl, The Lumberjacks, and the Killer

On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and instantly the United State was into World War II, fighting both the Japanese in the Pacific and the Germans in Europe. The day before, on December 6, 1941, virtually no Americans were convinced that we would be at war soon. This movie hit movie theaters thirteen days later on December 19, and the first scene makes mention of ‘cutting timber for the government’ and later the squatter family suspected of sabotaging the lumber deal states that they would not harm anything that is helping the nation at this dangerous time. I don’t know if those scenes were re-shot after the attack on Pearl Harbor, or if the whole movie was shot after that infamous day, but it sure didn’t take long for the movie company to tie their plot into the war effort.

The plot is a familiar one, but it is set in the wilderness of the Northwest United States where the trees grow tall and straight, and big, tough lumberjacks risk life and limb to provide the wood that is building the nation. This isn’t a cowboy movie, but like them, the all-man tough adventure needs at least one pretty young girl to provide a bit of eye-candy for the guys watching the adventure. In this story young ‘Perry’ Lorimer, daughter of Harry Lorimer, becomes the owner of the lumber operation, and someone in the company is trying very hard to stop her from filling the order of lumber for the government. After the company gets the order they must hire many tough lumberjacks to get the job done, and several of the tough men of the wilderness are a bit odd . . . . When the ‘accidents’ start happening, there are several great suspects, and the search is on for the identity of the person or persons who will kill in order to prevent this order from being completed. The testosterone flows freely as these tough men suspect each other, and we suspect them all. See how soon you can discover who the good guys are and who the bad guys are . . . . And watch out for the Ace of Clubs and the spot on the wall. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter and enjoy the show.
