Cast & Crew
Shortly after the Civil War a feud between the Bucks and the Lillys begins over the murder of a Lilly by five Buck boys, who are acquitted by a jury in deference to the judge, a kin of the Bucks. Years later the dead Lilly's son becomes a preacher, tries to bring peace to the mountains, and falls in love with a Buck girl. He is abused for "enticing" the girl to church, and his mother insists on eradicating the Bucks once and for all. There is a bloody battle in which all of the Bucks are killed except the girl, who refuses to carry on the feud and marries the preacher.
Filmed partly in the Ozarks.
