The Trail of the Lonesome Pine is a good show, the first all-Technicolor feature produced 100% outdoors.

Director Henry Hathaway has sympathetically dealt with the ignorance of the mountaineer folk. His dialogicians, following the John Fox Jr original play – have faithfully preserved the reticent, curt mien of the feuding Tolliver and Falin clans.

Sylvia Sidney’s performances as the ‘billy looker is uncompromising in every detail. After a brief spell of schooling in Louisville, where Fred MacMurray has sent her, she reverts to type. Upon hearing how Buddy (Spanky McFarland) has been murdered, she too cries for a Falin’s blood. Henry Fonda, as her mountaineer vis-a-vis, is equally consistent in his scowling hate for the Falin clan, as well as for the advent of the city engineer (MacMurray). Latter is capital in his dealings with the ignorant hillbillies and his affection for June Tolliver (Sidney).
