~The Dead Line~
~H#2-58: George Walsh~
~Plot Synosis~
Like most silent pictures which take place in the Kentucky mountains, this one involves moonshiners and
a feud. The warring families are the Boones and the Harlans; moonshiner Clay Boone (George Walsh) is in
love with Mollie Powell (Irene Boyle), a Harlan half sister. But Clay has had enough of the feud when he
adopts a little girl who is killed. Much to everyone's consternation, he swears never to pick up a gun
again. He is called a coward, even by Mollie, but since this is a George Walsh film, it's clear that guns
aren't necessary -- Walsh was famous for his fisticuffs. After he's beaten a number of villains senseless, he
and Mollie end up together.
