In 1941 noted French director Jean Renoir made his American debut with Swamp Water - now Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment are releasing the DVD on 5th November 2012.
Tom Keefer (Walter Brennan) is a man falsely convicted of a murder and sentenced to death by hanging. He has escaped from prison and is hiding out in Georgia's Okefenokee Swamp. Keefer is dedicated to finding the real killer and clearing his name.
A trapper, Ben Ragan (Dana Andrews), is out searching for his dog when he finds Keefer hiding in the swamp. Ben believes the man's tale of being falsely railroaded. The two men trap animals together and Ben sells the furs. Keefer tells Ben to give his share of the money from their pelt sales to his daughter, Julie (Anne Baxter). Ben eventually falls in love with Julie, arousing the wrath of Ben's girlfriend Mabel (Virginia Gilmore), who tells authorities about Keefer's secret. Ben, however, refuses to co-operate with officials' efforts to locate the escaped convict.
