Abstract

"Forest Smokechaser" is a 1948 film produced by the United States Forest Service (Intermountain River). It features John Smokechaser, an Everyman Northern Rockies lookout-fireman, residing at a tower on Brundage Mountain along with his wife, Josephine, and their daughter, Joan. The plot follows John as he spots a fire, reports it, tracks it down and puts it out. More recently, the film has acquired special historical interest because it demonstrates exactly what techniques the crew portrayed in MacLean's account of the 1949 Mann Gulch fire actually possessed.
