The Big Trees Starring Kirk Douglas Also Eve Miller, Patrice Wymore, Edgar Buchanan, Alan Archer and Alan Hale Jr.
In 1900 lumberman Jim Fallon (Kirk Douglas) greedily eyes the big sequoia redwood trees in the virgin region of northern California. The land is already settled by, among others, a religious group led by Elder Bixby (Charles Meredith) who have a religious relationship with the redwoods and refuse to log them using other smaller trees for lumber. Kirk starts out as a slime in this wonderful western movie and ends up being an alright guy!
