Lena Rivers ('Charlotte Henry'), born in New England under clouded parentage, robbed of her mother at birth, transplanted with her grandmother(Beryl Mercer) to her uncle's plantation in Kentucky, suffered to remain there out of pity and constantly taunted by her cousin, Caroline (Joyce Compton),finds a friend in Henry Graham (James Kirkwood), the owner of the adjoining plantation. Graham's ward, Dorrie (Morgan Galloway), is the apple of Caroline's eye, but he seems to prefer Lena's company to Caroline's, is another discord in the harmony of the home. When Caroline sees Dorrie kiss Lena goodnight she flaunts her with the information that Lena's mother was never married, Lena's cup of bitter tea is filled to overflowing, and a hatred in her heart for her unknown father grows.

Great Movie!!! Charlotte Henry is a great actress!
27 September 2000 | by (shawnee mission, kansas) – See all my reviews

Lena Rivers is about a girl who is really nice to animals. She goes on a vacation to someone's house. Her father lives next-door. She meets a man (Durrie) in the woods who shoots a bunny and she gets very mad. She later finds out that he is her father's ward. She falls in love with him. There is a horse that is very wild and runs at the wrong time. She makes friends with him and gets to keep him. Later she really wants to leave because Durrie got drunk and drove off the road and her grandmother (Gramie) dies in front of her. This is a wonderful movie that I hope you see and enjoy. Starring Charlotte as Lena Rivers, and Beryl Mercer, with Morgan Galloway as Durrie and John Larkin as Lucifer.
