Paramount Pictures presents "MAN OF THE FOREST" (1933) (60 min/B&W) -- Starring Randolph Scott, Verna Hillie, Harry Carey, Noah Beery, Barton MacLane, Buster Crabbe & Guinn `Big Boy' Williams

Directed by Henry Hathaway

Clint Beasley (Noah Beery), who is after land owned by wealthy rancher Jim Gaynor (Harry Carey), plans to kidnap his daughter, Alice (Verna Hillie). Two-fisted frontiersman Brett Dale (Randolph Scott) gets wind of a plot and kidnaps her himself. When Gaynor arrives to retrieve his daughter, Beasley kills him and makes the Sheriff arrest Dale for the murder

Scott who later became exclusively a western star received his start as a western leading man in a series of Zane Grey films, these were B-Westerns from Paramount his original studio. This is one of several Grey stories that Scott filmed at in the early Thirties.

A must for Randolph Scott fans who are a loyal group of his films. It's a fine chance to see him in his younger days before those post World War II B-Westerns that he is now a screen legend for.

Based on a Zane Grey story, Man of the Forest was re-released as Challenge of the Frontier (1933)

Special footnote: -- This release from Alpha Home Entertainment is shorter in running time than the original and the film copy is just good to fair. But that being said, this is probably a better copy than most -- and it is a rare release.

I guess this movie comes under the description of "rarity"- one of Hathaway's famous Zane Grey Paramount Bs.HOWEVER- I don't think I have ever seen a worse copy on DVD of ANY film! Every few minutes there is a jump-cut as an average of about 150 frames is missing. What remains of the rest of the copy is scratched faded and downright filthy. My DVD of "To the Last Man" is pretty poor but if THIS copy had ever run at a kid's Saturday Matinee there would have been a riot! BE WARNED! Put the cost of this abortion toward a DVD of Hathaway's "Shepherd of the Hills"if you haven't already got it.Now that's a masterpiece in a great transfer-and Betty Field is a knockout!.

The video quality on this movie is poor, but what you should expect for a movie of this age that is not remastered. The audio quality on the other hand is very poor, for there is a loud and constant scratching sound throughout the entire movie, like that made on an old turntable before or after a song is played. This is the first DVD that forced me to turn the treble on my TV all of the way down in order to drown out as much of the scratching sound as possible so that I could hear the dialogue, and I have a great many westerns on the DVD format that are as old or older than this one with far better audio. I believe that with modern day equipment the manufacturer of this DVD could have nearly eliminated the constant scratching sound in the audio with little effort or expense.

Randolph Scott is his typical good self. Plot is typical of this westerns' genre. It is a very enjoyable movie despite the quality of the film not being the best due to its age.
