Brentwood and Joe watch Erich von Stroheim's Greed, in Canada, during what appears to be summer. Greed was not released until December of that year, and didn't see any wide release until late January of 1925. It's also doubtful that it would have made it to Canada any time before then. See more »

This film was a good portrayal of the real Newton boys...i am a Newton from Texas, and unfortunatly connected to this Newton clan...the true story in brief is that they were "kicked out" of the family for some kind of wrong doing by their parents...no other Newtons were farmers...mainly insurance salesmen, that kind of thing...Matt DEFINITLY looks like a Newton in this film...he looks almost identical to my great uncle John Newton when he was in his mid-20s...i was suprised by the acurracy of the film...
