Event Info
The townspeople of Summit, Alabama are a happy folk whose bliss is marred only by young Johnny Dorset, a ‘two-legged skyrocket of a kid’ whose mischief
leaves no one unscathed. Two con-men kidnap Johnny in order to extort a large ransom from his mother. The scheme soon goes awry: the ‘supernatural
tortures’ imposed by Johnny, alias Red Chief, on the two hapless kidnappers wear their patience thin; the townspeople, overjoyed at the boy’s disappearance,
refuse to help the sheriff search for him; and the Widow Dorset offers to take the boy off the kidnappers’ hands for a small fee. When Red Chief captures four friends and brings them to the hideout, the renegades’ resolve is further weakened, and they decide to accept his mother’s generous offer.
