~Plot Synopsis~
This remake of the 1916 Cecil B. DeMille picture was Mary Miles Minter's final film for Paramount.
June Tolliver (Minter) is a Kentucky mountain girl whose family is feuding with the Falins. But their
differences are temporarily put on hold when revenue officer John Hale (Antonio Moreno) comes
around. He falls in love with June and sends her to the city to get an education. When she returns
and the feud breaks out once again, June tries to become a peacemaker between the two families.
Only after Hale is shot and seriously wounded do the men finally come to their senses, and upon his
recovery, he and June marry. Those who think that Paramount ditched Minter because her name was
dragged into the still-unsolved murder of William Desmond Taylor will be forced to admit that the
studio sent her off in style. Not only was this a remake of a popular film, it was originally based on an
even more well-known book and play. Minter also had very capable support in Moreno and excellent
character actor Ernest Torrence, who played "Devil" Judd Tolliver.
