SKU ID #317494
An engrossing melodrama based on the popular 1871 novel by Edward Eggleston, "The Hoosier Schoolmaster" (1935) centers on a former Union Solider veteran of the Civil War who takes a job teaching in a bucolic town in Indiana. Facing still rampant resentments from the community against Yankees, he works hard to win over the townspeople as well as the heart of a pretty local girl. This battle is not easily won, however, as he must fight land-hungry veterans and corrupt local politicians along the way.
