Rough, truly rural backgrounds
15 January 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two reel love story of the Tennessee Mountains in which King Bagott and Miss Jane Fearnley lead, the first as a moonshiner, the second as a lady detective who has been sent to discover the still. The moonshiner has a crippled brother, a lad of about fourteen, played by Joe Moore, who fills remarkably well an important role. This character is the means of raising the tone of the situation, for it was to buy a surgical operation that would cure the crippled brother that the moonshiner went into the illicit business, and he is also the means through which the' situation is worked out to its denouement. In fact, he is the picture's turning point all through a carefully made and very interesting story. The acting, even of most of the lesser characters; the scene making with its rough, truly rural backgrounds and the light effects all add to the value of the release. It is a commendable picture. - The Moving Picture World, August 24, 1912
