Storyline

A native son returns to the isolated, backwards village in the Okefenokee Swamp where he was raised, with ideas of bringing modern-day progress in terms of schools, canals, new roads, running-water and other needed changes, but is met with resistance by nearly all of the residents, some out of ignorance and some with selfish vested-interests in seeing that no changes be made. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Backwoods hilarity!
30 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you've ever heard stories of backswamp gator baiting, here's your chance to see it in action. This is the story of two young boys, used as bait to catch gators, who grow up competing with each other over who is the best at what they do. But one of the fathers wants his son to go on to better things and so sends him off to school. When he comes back to the swamp an educated man, the old rivalry ensues. I imagine this movies main selling point back in 1947 was the gator baiting scene and the young girl cutting her overalls to shreds to form an early variation on the bikini. Its a short film, one like they use to show before the main feature instead of irritating commercials like they do now, so you won't feel like you wasted too much of you time.
