Wild Harvest was the first movie made to portray the life of a transient harvester. However, I felt the inclusion of the "highgrading" issues and the fights between farmers and their harvesting crews, does go to extreme. The footage of the Massey-Harris 21A's is very nice. I also liked the opening footage of the varied combines/harvesting scenes, which also included the original Massey-Harris 21.
Hooray for the comment on the Wild Harvest newsletter! I'm the one who initially launched the newsletter, but am no longer connected with it.
This is one movie that needs to be re-released on both DVD and VHS! There are many farmers and custom harvesters among us who still want to either see this for the first time, or simply see it again after such a long time.
