It was Arlen's last film for Pine-Thomas for a number of years until Speed to Spare (1948).


Russ Evans gets out of the service and meets Elaine, the widow of Ken, a man he served with. He helps her protect the rights to some timber land that she has inherited.



The film was originally called Timberman.[2] Pine-Thomas signed Mary Beth Hughes to make this film and a musical The Duchess Rides High.[3]

Filming took place in July 1943.[4]

The film was slanted more towards comedy than many earlier Pine-Thomas films.[5]
