Storyline

Pettigrew, a shop-keeper in a mountain town of Kentucky, falls in love with the teacher, Beatrice. The girl doesn't consider him as a lover, so he gets angry and accuses her of molesting his son Edward who has a mental illness. The girl marries the hermit, Fear O'God Fulton in order to calm the people's anger and day by day she falls in love with her husband and a child is born. Pettigrew hides Edward and charges the hermit with his son's murder. Fear O'God is imprisoned but he escapes and takes refuge in the mountain with his wife and son.

Why vote for a film which has been lost?
10 May 2014 | by (Eindhoven, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I'm really surprised that over 100 people have voted for this film, unless those are votes by people who were actually there in 1926 to see the film at the cinema! This film is at the top of the most-wanted list of the BFI because no copy of this film has surfaced yet. What we do know is that Hitchcock dismissed it as an awful film, commenting on the ridiculousness of Nita Naldi's long fingernails, which didn't suit her role as a miller's daughter. What we also know is that contemporary reviews did not seem to agree with Hitchcock and were moderately positive. Still, you cannot vote for a film which you haven't seen... unless...
