Overview

Veteran screen menace Jack LaRue is the unlikely hero of Monogram's Gentleman From Dixie--and no one seems more surprised at this atypical casting than LaRue himself! The star is cast as ex-convict Thad Terrill, who upon his release heads to his family estate in the Deep South. It is here that Thad proves he's really a swell guy underneath by reuniting his young niece Betty Jean (Mary Ruth) with her long-estranged mother Margaret (Marian Marsh). He also manages to prove that he was innocent of the charge that sent him to prison by exposing the actual miscreant. Stereotypically cast as a faithful black retainer, Clarence Muse manages to invest a great deal of dignity and warmth in his two-dimensional character, and even gets to sing a couple of his own musical compositions.
