Movie Info

Ever since slipping into Public Domain, The Big Trees has become one of the most accessible and oft-televised of Kirk Douglas' pictures. Douglas plays an unscrupulous lumberjack who covets the land owned by a religious sect. All that's saving him from being the film's main villain is the fact that there's an even nastier contingent out to claim the sect's territory. His greed tempered by the love of pious Eve Miller, Douglas turns out to be a good guy after all in the film's climax. Watch for

Kirk Douglas took no salary in exchange for getting his release from his contract with Warners.

Audience Reviews for The Big Trees

I found this movie predictable, and it has some bad attempts at humor too. I really wasn't impressed with this story, although I am glad that there were some people who were thinking about the environment back then.

Conventional western set in Northern California with Kirk the ruthless swindler amidst colorful settings and a good supporting cast. If you like westerns this one isn't bad but it's not particularly memorable either.
