Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The title might suggest a Richard Arlen/Chester Morris "B" picture of the 1940s. In truth, Tall Timbers was filmed in Australia--New South Wales, to be exact. Two timber companies are engaged in a fierce rivalry over territory and output. The individual woodcutters are likewise at loggerheads (ouch) over money and women. Tall Timbers was directed by Ken G. Hall, one of the few interesting figures to emerge from the off-and-on Australian film industry of the 1930s (see notes on The Silence of Dean Maitland ).
