Drama (1944) 66 minutes ~ Black & White

Timber Queen is another of Pine-Thomas’ rugged low-budget adventure films of the 1940s, most of which (like this one) starred Richard Arlen. It all begins when Russ (Arlen), a former Army pilot, comes home after a physical discharge. He befriends Elaine (Mary Beth Hughes), the widow of an Army buddy, who has inherited a financially-strapped timber camp. Elaine’s financial future hinges on a huge timber shipment, which must arrive at its destination On Time-and that’s where Russ and his little airplane come in. Sheldon Leonard is his usual surly self as Smacksie, a reformed racketeer who helps Russ complete his mission.
