Roddy McDowall and the Sticks
20 January 2017 | by drednmSee all my reviews

Roddy McDowall stars in this Monogram B film as a preppy kid with a degree in forestry who gets a job at a logging camp where he calls trees by their Latin names, befriends the girl cook (Jeff Donnell), and makes an enemy (Ted Hecht).

Lots of location shooting at Lone Pine, California, the film has a documentary feel as it depicts the various stages of logging big timber, which the loggers call "sticks." One of a series of films that McDowall starred in and produced for Monogram. Co-stars include Lyle Talbot, Gordon Jones, Robert Shayne, Lyn Thomas, and Tom Greenway.

Main problem is that the villain (Hecht) is too obvious. Pretty mild and not the best of the Monogram bunch.
