Movie Info

Set in the woodlands of Wisconsin, Come and Get It stars Edward Arnold as a logger-turned-lumber tycoon.

Hawks transformed Edna Ferber's historical novel into a sprawling adventure of hard-driving masculine will and a tragedy of its erotic limits.

Although there is nothing new in the theme, it has been simply and powerfully expressed by a number of admirable performances, and it has been played against an interesting background.

The first part of the film, the best, is unmistakably Hawks.

Botched melodrama that's based on the novel by Edna Ferber.

This melodrama, based on Edna Ferber's novel, is better known for its offscreen facts and scandals. It's a co-directed Oscar-winning film, which gives a rare opportunity to see the acting of Frances Farmer.

This drippy material was generally not the kind of stuff that suited Hawks, but he made the best of it with the film's spirited barroom brawls and a delightful scene in which McCrea and Farmer pull taffy together.

The film may not amount to much, but it's hard to deny the entertainment value of such an over-the-top storyline.

Audience Reviews for Come and Get It

This movie does have it's funny moments, but most of the time it's talky and boring.

Overlooked melodrama about a lumber tycoon who marries to further his career and abandons the woman he truly loves. Credible production is perhaps more fascinating for its behind-the-scenes shenanigans. Howard Hawks was fired by producer Samuel Goldwyn after directing the first half, and subsequently hired William Wyler to complete the film. This is reflected in the shifting storyline. Starts out as virile logging adventure then fades into an over plotted soap opera, all the while distinguished by solid performances. Character actor Edward Arnold stars as Barney Glasgow, the businessman determined to succeed. As both mother and daughter, troubled actress Frances Farmer is also worth watching in one of her rare film performances. Interestingly it was Walter Brennan who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his likable but unremarkable work as Glasgow's lifelong friend. Sweeping drama is also notable for the extraordinary logging sequences in the first half.
