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. Written by

This movie will stay with you for the rest of your life. I did not see the movie until 2002 on TCM, but the senate speech about the love of a dog quoted in the movie was excerpted in a comic book I read as a boy in the late 50s. I would love to see the movie again. Of course, like many people, I believe that every movie with Lionel Barrymore is a classic on some level. The movie is otherwise pretty much standard fare for the 30s: a low budget film made with contract players. But if you are a lover of animals, this movie is a classic that ranks right up there with Old Yeller, The Biscuiteater (original version), or even the Lassie series. You get a little flavor for what life was like in a pre-WWII America.
