Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Savage Passions was produced by Nat Levine, long before his fruitful association with Republic Pictures. Set in the hills of Tennessee, the story concerns a long-standing feud between two moonshining families. As much as the rival clans hate each other, they hate the Law even more. After reels and reels of bitter fighting and bloody shooting, the audience is primed for an all-stops-out violent climax. Instead, Savage Passions wimps out by having the feud settled in court, with hugs and handshakes all around. Alice Calhoun, who spent most of her career in "B" pictures like this one, headed the cast.
