At the turn of the century lumber was a booming industry in a savage land. Upon the unexpected death of his father, Daniel Rimsdale returns home to try to salvage the floundering family lumber business, find out who killed his father, and save his family from financial ruin. However, he meets heavy resistance from others who will stop at nothing to become the new Lumber Baron.
There are no extravagfanca in thif touching the heart kind of movie, the theme is spun around a familys lumbering business, where the father dies all of a sudden, and the son of the house has to try to take over the business on behalf of his mother and siblings. he is doing it the hard way by going undercover and learn the trade among the lumberjacks in the snowy icecold environment of the lumbering season.
the film is very well crafted, its cast delivers an extremely brilliant performance, and i cant remember a movie where the maincat and extras have done such hard working labour as in this film, cutting trees with ax and twin saws,twigging the logs and transporting it all.its so darn real life like.
i must also turn the spotlight towards the musical score made for this feature film, it is of the classical type, but so well spunned into the story, and it makes the film get wings for itself, and makes place for you to join this ride of darn well made classic drama.
this may not be the first choice to many, but as my wife sai,'' this was entertainment on high levcel'', and ditto from the grumpy old man. this was a extremely nice surprise, so if you want to get reset back to the early years of the 1900's, then choose THE LUMBER BARON. its highly recommended
