~Plot Synopsis~
Author John Fox was known for his tales of the Blue Grass State and its mountain people. This romantic
drama was based on one of his novels. Two men, the rugged Boone Stallard (Monte Blue) and aristocratic
Randolph Marshall (Wilfred Lytell), are rivals for the heart of Anne Bruce (Diana Allen), daughter of the
governor (J.H. Gilmore). Both men are members of the Kentucky legislature -- Stallard has won this
position because his people in the mountains want emancipation. Anne favors him because she feels that
Marshall is not a man of character. The Blue Grass aristocrats argue that the mountaineers are a crude
bunch and their feuds are a disgrace. Stallard's brother (J.W. Johnston) pretty much proves them right by
getting involved in one and killing the member of a rival family. He is sentenced to death for the murder.
Stallard, meanwhile, has gotten in a fracas with some aristocrats, and Marshall jumps in to help him out.
He also gets the sentence of Stallard's brother commuted. Anne sees all this and decides that Marshall is a
good man after all. In the end, she chooses him over Stallard.
