As indicated by the title, Taming Sutton's Gal is a backwoods melodrama with comic undertones. John Lupton plays citified bank clerk Frank McClary, who heads to hillbilly country to do some hunting. He rents a room from Aunty Sutton (Verna Felton), whose niece Lou (Gloria Talbott) takes a liking to Frank. Unfortunately, so does the nymphomaniacal Evelyn Phelps (May Wynn), the wife of dangerously jealous moonshiner Jugger Phelps (Jack Kelly). Things get really hairy when Jugger is shot and wounded: he thinks that Frank is responsible, but the truth is closer to home. The inevitable climactic showdown is consummately directed by Lesley Selander, a past master at making silk purses out of sow's ears.
