Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Adopted Son was one of six films directed by Charles J. Brabin in 1917. Francis X. Bushman plays "Two-Gun" Carter, who by virtue of family ties finds himself engaged in a long-standing mountain feud. Bushman wants to marry Beverly Bayne (the actor's real-life wife at the time), but the warring families won't hear of it. Everything is solved when Bushman's genuine family heritage is revealed in Reel Six. Adopted Son was based on a story by Max Brand, of Destry Rides Again and Dr. Kildare fame.
