Pleasant O'Brien B Movie
6 September 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

George O'Brien is a masked wrestler -- he thinks his father will be ashamed that he isn't using the family fortune to become an intellectual. Daddy Lloyd Ingraham thinks George is effete, so he sends him up to the logging camp to toughen him up. Along the way, there's pretty Beatrice Roberts to fight over with Ward Bond.

Although this movie has a screwball comedy start, it quickly turns into a conventional romantic comedy with logging sequences and fights. O'Brien is good in his role, and he only gets to hit Ward Bond, and that only once -- he is a gentleman, after all. Still, it's competently directed by Dave Howard, and the script, while no world-beater, holds together well enough to make this a good, if unexceptional movie for O'Brien fans.
