The costumes were not designed for color, yet. All were tones of brown and grey, as was customary for black and white photography. The sets and props were similarly tones of brown. A couple exceptions included multi-colored pencils on a desk and apples in baskets. See more »

The Trail of the Lonesome Pine is a beautiful tear-jerker.The characters are simple and honest. The setting is in hill-billy country. The simple folk there are trying to prevent a railroad running through their area and upsetting their way of life. To add to their stress is a continual family feud. In this movie we see the best and the worst in people. The acting is top-notch. A handkerchief is a must for this movie.
