Overview

Also known as Never Give an Inch, this film was based on a novel by Ken Kesey. Paul Newman who also directed stars as Hank Stamper, the oldest son of an Oregon logging family headed by Henry Henry Fonda. Hank's half-brother, Leeland Michael Sarrazin, embittered over Henry's treatment of his late mother, returns after a ten-year absence to work in the family business. Leeland's presence causes friction with Henry, who resents his prodigal son's hippie mindset, and Hank, who perceives Leeland as a threat to his own position in the family structure. Hank has good reason to feel resentful: before long, his wife, Viv Lee Remick, has entered into an affair with Leeland. Meanwhile, Henry wages an ongoing battle with the unionized loggers in the region, who threaten reprisals should Henry attempt to continue his business without union help.

    My family was in the logging supply business 1928 to 1990 As a kid I often went with my Dad when he went out to the logging sites and saw shop dealers on weekends making special deliveries & "selling (dinking Olyimpia Beer) with the mill owners & loggers...." This movies gets all the aspects of logging I remember. Family life? Dunno about the movie portrayals, BUT... the logging scenes, union problems ? I saw it all, and this movie hits a home run there. Great film - Great story. If you live in the Pacific NW, you must have this movie at home.
