Red Margaret, Moonshiner (1913) -- Lost
24 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Margaret ( Pauline Bush ) is the leader of a clever band of mountain moonshiners who have thwarted every attempt of the authorities to capture them. A government agent ( Murdock MacQuarrie ) is sent up to the hills to assist in breaking the gang, and Margaret meets and falls in love with him. Lon ( Lon Chaney ), Margaret's suitor, discovers the identity of the agent and forces Margaret to write a letter which brings him, unsuspectingly, to her cabin. Fearing for his safety, the girl notifies the deputies of their leader's danger. The deputies arrive and capture the moonshiners, Margaret's father is killed, and the agent is left behind, wounded. A deputy tries to take credit for the entire capture, but Margaret helps the agent to the sheriff's office and gives the impression that the agent arrested her. The agent is honored for his work and the girl goes to prison, a happy woman.

"Just why she is called 'Red' is not apparent. Pauline Bush interprets the part well, but there is no cause for the name except that it sounds melodramatic." ---Motion Picture News

Sadly this 1913 short silent drama, directed by Allan Dwan is now a lost film.
