The old man Jim Harper several years ago was unjustly accused of a murder , as he is living and hiding in the swamp with his beautiful daughter, Laurie . Lure of love in the devil’s own domain ¡ . The Treacherous Swampland of Georgia . The Swamp ! Sinister – mysterious – it shaped the lives and loves and hates of the people who lived around its edges !! A really off-beat Western regarding young hunter stumbles upon a wanted fugitive and his lovely daughter who have been hiding from law for years until they are befriended by a trapper who penetrates the swamp in search of his dog , and then he helps them return to civilization. It is a romantic and colorful film set in a Georgia swamp , with a triangular romance in which two young people Ben/Jeffery Hunter and Laurie/Jean Peters fall in love, and while another lover/Constance Smith has jealous and schemes her vengeance . And adding the ordinary suntry denizens , such as : alligators , snakes , and quicksands . Based on a story by Vereen Bell that was formerly adapted as ¨Swamp water¨ 1941 by Jean Renoir , Irving Pichel with Walter Brennan , Walter Huston , Anne Baxter , Dana Andrews . Fine acting abounds all around . Decent interpretation by Jeffrey Hunter as Ben, a young who works on getting a fugitive to come out of the wilderness and clear his name . Jean Peters is extremely gorgeous as an intrepid heroine . Walter Brennan is good as an old man who was unjustly accused of murder, seeking refuge in a Georgia swamp . Suppport cast is pretty good , such as : Constance Smith ,Tom Tully , Robert Adler , Harry Shannon , Dale Robertson , and the ordinary nasty Jack Elam. There’s glimmer technicolor cinematography , with the overpowering atmosphere of the swamps wonderfully captured by cameraman Edward Cronjager , shot on location in the Okefenokee Swamp Park . His camerawork helps build up a nice sense of the claustrophobic menace conjured up by the lush vegetation . Evocative production design and art direction from Lyle Wheeler , Thomas Little , Fred J.
