Veteran stage and screen actor Dustin Farnum starred in this romantic melodrama about a prospector who returns to find his wife in the arms of a lustful cousin. Farnum kills the usurper in a duel, burns his property to the ground, and frees his slaves before returning West, the repentant wife closely behind him. She almost perishes in a sand storm, and the near tragedy makes the hero realize how much he still loves her. A typical melodrama of the 1910s, Kentucky Days was penned by one of the more prolific screenwriters of the period, Dorothy Yost. The leading lady was Margaret Fielding, a former Fox ingenue from New Jersey who had appeared in the serial The Woman in Grey (1919)
