Synopsis

Steve Riley, a cub reporter on the Louisville Ledger, is assigned to cover a feud in the Kentucky mountains between the Ripper and White clans; Steve falls in love with Alice Ripper, greatly offending the Ripper clan; he ignores Betty White (who loves him) and greatly offends the White clan. Both sides set out to eliminate Steve, and he is forced to go into hiding, taking Alice with him. They are captured by Tilden McFields, one of Alice's suitors, who lets Steve go when Alice promises to renounce his love. Steve later rescues Alice, and both feuding clans are soon in pursuit. Steve holds them off until he is rescued by the state militia. He then returns to Louisville, taking with him a great story and a new wife.
