Moonshine Valley is a 1922 black-and-white silent American Western film. The working title was The Miracle Child: He Giveth and Taketh. The plot centers around a man named Ned Connors who begins to drink heavily because his wife has left him for the local doctor. The man discovers a lost child and takes her in. The child soon becomes ill and the doctor is called for. Upon arriving, the doctor recognizes the girl as his own. When the doctor tries to take the girl away, Ned murders him. The film concludes with Ned and his wife reuniting in order to take care of the now orphaned child. One film exhibitor called it the "poorest excuse for a picture [he] ever saw."
