Those loveable lugs!
Great little movie, fast-paced, and wonderfully unrealistic.

That was a lot of movie for one hour!
They really packed it all into this action- adventure, romantic-drama, with hints of screwball comedy.
There's a nightclub, dames, (a singer and a pianist), some wise-guys, and an ex-army pilot and his shady, conniving business partner and his lackeys, and an otherwise quite assorted array of lumberjacks, along with high flying adventures in the timberland with dynamite.
The characters are well developed and likable. The story was quick moving and entertaining.
The sound and picture clarity were very good.
This little sleeper is a winner.
I almost gave it five stars.... no, I take that back... I am giving it all five.

Best of Two Worlds
Really sort of an adult fantasy. A totally unreal mixture of clean cut rural "get up with the chickens and swing that axe" and urban palookas and hipsters. So you get snappy dialog *and* great scenery. (Not that June Havoc wasn't great scenery enough.)
Film making never drops below professional level and one scene in particular where boy and girl are on a swing in the dark w/ crickets is very nice. Someday I'd like to see the full version
