Storyline

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.

"Spring, you're so plumb crazy over that hound you make me sick!"
20 June 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Charming story about Missouri farmer Spring Davis (Lionel Barrymore) who has a beloved foxhound named Bugle Ann. When anti-social neighbor Jacob Terry (Dudley Digges) decides to put up barbed wire to prevent the foxhounds from running on his property, it creates bad blood between the two old men. Eventually the conflict leads to bloodshed. To add to the drama, Davis' son (Eric Linden) and Terry's daughter (Maureen O'Sullivan) fall in love.

Sentimental drama, a bit of a tearjerker at times, carried largely by Barrymore in a characteristically likable turn. Dudley Digges is also good in a completely different way as a totally hissable villain whose only redeeming quality is that his daughter is played by the adorable Maureen O'Sullivan. Weak-voiced Eric Linden does a decent job. Also fine in supporting roles are Spring Byington and Charley Grapewin. It's a very entertaining movie. Some of the revelations late in the movie are eye roll-worthy but this isn't the type of film you watch for the plot. I can't imagine any fans of Barrymore not liking this one.
