The countrymen in the hills of Missouri take the hounds on night fox hunts. This goes on until Jacob Terry comes into the county and decides to raise sheep and install a woven wire fence. This upsets the neighbors since the dogs would not harm the sheep and they will be hurt running into the fence at night. Jacobs vows to shoot any dogs or people that he finds on his land. But Bengy Davis is in love with Camden Terry and that alone causes problems. But when the hound, Bugle Ann is missing one night, both sides are out with guns to settle the score.

Actually, a very memorable film
24 December 2007 | by (Seattle, WA, United States) – See all my reviews

Although I was only 9 years old at the time, this film somehow left a deep impression on me. Certainly not because it was the first I'd seen — I had been watching films for several years by then. No, it was the feeling generated in a kid's heart . . . anyone who loved dogs would have felt it, I'm sure. I don't even remember much else about it. Just the baying of that lonely, doomed animal, Bugle Ann, caught in a steel trap on a foggy night. I don't even recall the details around it. They found her the next morning (Lionel Barrymore in one of his more moving scenes) when it was too late. It was a rare film, in those days, that left me feeling worse when I left the movie house than when I went in.

(Of course, the impression might have been solidified for me when I discovered that the girl I eventually married had also been deeply saddened by this film — one of HER earliest film memories, and that was in the late 1940s when we talked about it.)

I do wish I could see a re-issue of it.
