Storyline

Essie, a mountain girl, moves in with a family of neighboring bootleggers when her father, also a bootlegger, is killed by federal agents. She falls in love with Tom, one of the family's brothers, but another brother, the violent and brutal Lem, decides he wants her for himself, and beats Tom badly. What the girl doesn't know is that it wasn't the feds who killed her father--it was Lem. Complications ensue. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Trivia

A Jewel Production. Universal, not owning its own theater network, devised a 3-tiered brand system that helped market its features to independent theater owners: Red Feather (low budget programmers), Bluebird (mainstream releases) and Jewel (prestige productions). Jewel productions were often promoted as special engagements in hopes of attracting higher roadshow ticket prices. This branding system would cease in late 1929. See more »
