Mountain girl Trigger Hicks, a fierce loner equally handy with a rock or a prayer, is in danger of having her faith-healing mistaken for witchcraft by the neighbors. She shows a vulnerable side when John Stafford, a philandering engineer working on a new dam, is attracted to her. Matters come to a head when Trigger "rescues" an abused baby from its parents, and seeks help from the engineers. Written by

Did You Know?
The rights to the play "Trigger" were purchased with Dorothy Jordan
in mind for the lead. However, Katharine Hepburn
agreed to star on the condition that she could leave for New York on November 16, 1933 to appear in the play "The Lake". Shooting of the two final scenes ran about 6 hours late on November 15, 1933, but director John Cromwell
was dissatisfied with the results and wanted to reshoot them. Miss Hepburn refused at first, citing the terms of her contract. She then demanded, and received, $10,000 (in addition to her $50,000 salary) to stay an extra day for the reshoot. See more
You trust me, don't you?
Don't trust no man farther than a shotgun can hit.
Oh, you never loved a man, then, did you?
Sure, I've loved a heap of 'em. The more I love 'em, the less I trust 'em.
