Storyline

In the Kentucky hills, Jason Honeycutt lives with his harsh stepfather Steve, not far from where his friend Mavis Hawn lives with her widowed mother. Mavis spends much of her time preparing for the day when she can discover who murdered her father, and can exact revenge. Steve Honeycutt is romancing the widow Hawn, hoping to marry her and take control of her land, because he knows that visiting businessman Morton Sanders is planning to exploit the area for its coal. When Sanders's plan becomes known, a group of vigilantes confronts him by night, and soon shots are fired. Sanders is killed, and circumstantial evidence leads to Mavis being charged with the crime.

Very impressive vehicle for Mary
21 May 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I watched this film without the usual musical soundtrack accompaniment and was totally hooked from the first few frames nevertheless. Mary Pickford was a little dynamo in her role in this film; I thoroughly enjoyed her and the rest of the cast. Featuring a very young John Gilbert too (here credited as Jack Gilbert), Heart o' the Hills is great entertainment. Mary displays many emotional layers as a strong and independent country girl who has vowed to avenge her father's murder. Along the way she grows up, falls in love, becomes educated, and finds her place in life. A must see for the Mary enthusiast. >
