Storyline

Two rustic families, headed by patriarchs Laban Feather and Pap Gutshall, are feuding. At first, it is comical, with just the sons of the two families playing tricks on each other. But soon the Feather boys decide to kidnap a girl. She turns out to be innocent bystander Roonie Gill, not the made-up girlfriend "Lolly Madonna." As events escalate, Zack Feather and Roonie fall in love and try to bring the others to their senses. Will Roonie discover Zack's dark secret, the reason for the painful feud between the two families which once were close friends? Written by Dan Kuttner (KutRite@yahoo.com)

Quotes

Roonie Gill: My name is Roonie Gill. I was just changing buses on my way to Nashville. Actually, I didn't care much where I was going. It just felt good to be on my own for the first time. I never heard of the Feather family or the Gutshalls before that. I found out later that Ludie Gutshall had planted a postcard in the Feather mailbox to get them away from the still. He signed it Lolly-Madonna - and that's who they thought I was. By the time I knew what was happening, there wasn't much I could do about it...

Grim and depressing
21 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Story about two hillbilly families. One is run by Rod Steiger, the other by Robert Ryan. Two of Steiger's sons rape Ryans' daughter. Things quickly escalate and it all ends tragically.

This has a great cast--aside from Steiger and Ryan we have Jeff Bridges, Ed Lauter, Randy Quaid, Gary Busey and Season Hubley (a great actress who starred in many B movies well into the 1990s). However despite all the good acting this movie never really works. Nothing seems to have the impact it should have. The ending also is incredibly brutal and negative. So it's OK but just doesn't work. Despite the PG rating there's a lot swearing and a VERY bloody beating.
