FROM STUMP TO SHIP, filmed in 1930, survives as the best, most vivid and complete film record of the long log business. People who know the business and those who see it here for the first time, agree that this film brings to life the priceless heritage of generations of woodworkers and their families. remarkably detailed scenes, filmed year-round, are uniquely enhanced by the original script, written to be read with the silent footage of the 1930s.
The soundtrack is brought to life by Tim Sample, narrator and renowned Maine humorist, and in the role of filmmaker, Alfred Ames. B/W 28 minutes. DVD.
