Description by OLDIES.com:

Beautiful, talented young Elnora Comstock, estranged from her constantly disparaging mother, gets love and support from a kindly aunt and uncle. With their help she enrolls in a prestigious high school and manages to accumulate enough money to attend college. But Elnora's plans for the future are complicated by an ill-fated romance with the village doctor's son and the subsequent theft of her meager savings.

A rural drama set in Indiana's swamp country, A Girl of the Limberlost was the most elaborate production undertaken by modest Monogram Pictures in 1934. Nearly 60 sets - including a sound stage swamp - were constructed for the film, which boasted a stellar cast of major studio regulars and silent screen favorites such as Henry B. Walthall, Betty Blythe, Barbara Bedford, and Helen Jerome Eddy. Based on a best-selling novel previously adapted to the screen with considerable success, girl became a monster hit for the Poverty Row studio, reportedly earning a million dollars. The original story was filmed three more times, most recently as a 1990 TV movie.

Product Description:

Set within the steamy Louisiana bayous, this melodrama chronicles the reconciliation between an embittered bereaved mother and the daughter she always blamed for her husband's demise. Eventually, the mother sees the light and begins loving the child when she discovers that her beloved spouse had been having an affair.
