Plot Synopsis:

Pantheon director Jean Renoir’s first American film, an adaptation by Dudley Nichols (Stagecoach, The Informer) of Vereen Bell’s best-selling novel set against the mysterious backdrop of Georgia’s Okefenokee Swamp, weaves the tale of a young man (Dana Andrews) who ventures into the swamp’s taboo territory. There he forms a tenuous partnership with a half-wild fugitive (Walter Brennan), the victim of a miscarriage of justice. Also starring Walter Huston and Anne Baxter, and featuring a brooding score by David Buttolph, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
