Alex Philip’s first novel, The Crimson West, was turned into a fairly successful film called ‘The Crimson Paradise’ (or ‘Fighting Playboy’ in the U.S.) in 1933. It was the first Canadian talkie and was shot entirely in Victoria, B.C.
Spoiled, Young, Wastrel Donald Maclean has disgraced his family with his drunken antics, and is turned out of the family home until he can make a man of himself. Meeting up with a "Timber Beast" whom he helps out of a dangerous scrape, Don heads (on borrowed dollars) west to find work in Canada in the timber trade. Forest fires, Wobblies, workers unrest and a peculiar but attractive young woman await him as he changes from a part time playboy to a hard working lumber boss. [Suggest a different description.]
