I had the opportunity to watch this movie with the granddaughter of Silas Miracle at the Library of Congress Cinema Division. All of the stars were local people, much of the movie was shot at Silas' cabin in the Great Smoky Mtns. The acting was remarkably professional considering only one member of the cast had ever been in movies before. The story was dramatic and with the backdrop of the Smokies, it was a nice piece of cinematography.
As a side note the curator told us that there was no print of this movie known to exist for many years and they got the print sent to them from Romania after World War II. It seems it was confiscated by the new government from the Nazis.
