~Plot Synopsis~
Director Tom Terriss took his cast and crew to Cuba and Spain to give this romantic drama authentic
exteriors. Character actor Pedro de Cordoba stars as Dorando, an officer of the Spanish army. When his
wife is killed as the result of an attack by the lascivious Marques de Bazan (Gustav Von Seyffertitz),
Dorando becomes an outlaw and is soon known as El Bandolero. He kidnaps the Marques' young son,
Ramón, and hands him over to be raised by one of his own men. When Ramón grows up he falls in love
with Dorando's beautiful daughter, Petra (Renée Adorée). Dorando forbids the match, so Ramón leaves
and becomes a bullfighter. When Ramón turns down the advances of Concha (Dorothy Rush), she
vindictively asks the Marques to order him to kill a bull before it has been worn out. Only after Ramón is
gored does the Marques discover that he is his own son. He rushes to Ramón’s bedside and begs
forgiveness from both his son and Dorando. Dorando, who has been made chief of the mountain police,
accepts the apology. Ramón recovers and Dorando gives him and Petra his blessings.
