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.

Born in 1929 I was 8 yrs. old when I saw "Voice of Bugle Ann"
28 August 2004 | by (Miami, Florida) – See all my reviews

I cannot begin to tell the readers how Voice of Bugle Ann affected me!

As a little girl I knew that I loved all animals, big and small. Saturdays were my day to take my 15 cent allowance and walk to downtown Binghamton (NY) to see a movie at the Strand theater. This was my every Saturday routine.

5 cents would buy my way in to see the movie and I always headed for the front four rows of seats. I spent the remaining 10 cents on as much candy as it would buy.

I guess Lionel Barrymore was like a movie "father" to me and I adored him! And when I watched Bugle Ann and saw how loving he was with his companion and how hurt he was when Bugle Ann was lost to him, I couldn't stop crying.

This movie made a lifetime impression on me of how you should love and cherish any animal that God has put in your care. You should consider them a part of your family. You should express your affection for them whenever you're together. And, it's a good thing to sit down and talk to them about the things you have on mind, even your worries. Treat them as if they were another human.

I have a Yorkie mix and we are at one another's side 24-hrs. a day.

And something that has stayed with me from the age of 8 to my current age of 75...I have NEVER forgotten the beautiful bugle of Bugle Ann. I have heard it at times when we have driven through the Everglades. But, strangest of all, I will hear it at night time. I always tell myself "that's Bugle Ann and she's telling us she's OK by bugling..."

When, of course, I know that it's really a neighbor's dog.
