In her sixth consecutive starring vehicle, 17-year-old ingenue June Caprice essayed her standard characterization, that of an unbridled mountain gal with no knowledge of the Outside World. The heroine's ignorance of civilization comes to an end when she meets a handsome schoolteacher. Naturally, she falls madly in love with him, only to be brought down to earth with a crash when it appears that Teacher already has a wife and child. He doesn't, of course, but Caprice doesn't find this out until after a lecherous mountaineer tries to Have His Way with her. Like practically all of June Caprice's early films, Child of the Wild was produced by William Fox and directed by John G. Adolfi.
