Pauline Bush makes much of it
20 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Pauline Bush gives a good portrayal in this story of moonshiners. It is a disagreeable part and a hard one, but she makes much of it. There are good mountain backgrounds. There are many fights between the outlaws and the deputies. Allan Dwan is the producer. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
