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.

DVD released, the print looks terrible!
22 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What in the world happened in the transfer of this film to DVD? The print looks terrible, like someone used a sharpener filter over it so that it has all these little dots around everyone's faces and against objects like trees and such. The musical score sounds monotonous and annoying, all these violins constantly playing the same tunes over and over again! I had to turn the sound off.

What a disappointment. I was looking forward to seeing this on DVD so much because I really like Mary Pickford and John Gilbert. The other feature on the disc M'liss was more enjoyable even though the musical score was mostly a boring piano and it was only in black and white, not tinted nicely as it should have been.
