Swamp Water, also known as The Man who Came Back, is a 1941 black-and-white drama directed by Jean Renoir. The film is based on a Vereen Bell novel of the same name, and was shot on location at the Okefenokee Swamp in Waycross, Georgia. In the film, Ben (Dana Andrews) is a mischievous boy who often traps and hunts small animals in the Okefenokee Swamp. One day while checking traps, he stumbles upon Tom Keefer (Walter Brennan), who Ben learns is an escaped prisoner. Tom pleads with the boy to keep his presence in the swamp a secret. Eventually, the duo are able to strike a deal that benefits them both. However, after a brief amount of time, certain people become very suspicious of the boy. How will the boy keep his promise to the old fugitive if he cannot convince the nosy townspeople that he is not up to something?
