Mountain Dew (1917) - Lost Film
14 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

J. Hamilton Vance ( Charles Gunn ) is a magazine writer who has come to the mountains to get local color for his stories. He soon falls in love with Roxie Bradley ( Margery Wilson ), the daughter of a moonshiner. Although regarded at first with suspicion by the mountaineers, Vance finally wins their confidence and is appointed teacher in the little log school house. The former teacher, resentful at the intrusion, attempts to shoot Vance through the schoolhouse window, but Roxie intercepts the bullet. Vance nurses her back to health, engendering the jealousy of Lily Raines ( Mary Boland ), who starts a rumour that Vance is a federal agent spying on the moonshiners. As the mountaineers plot to extract vengeance on Vance, Roxie and he are married, and when his adversaries discover that Vance is now one of them, they accept him as part of the mountain community.

This lost silent was produced by the Triangle Film Corporation and starred the popular actress, Margery Wilson.
