~Stewart Holmes & Priscilla Dean~
~Plot Synopsis~
Priscilla Dean's star was beginning to fade around the time she appeared as a passionate Andulusian
peasant in this drama. Young Gallito (Allan Forrest) wants very badly to become a matador. His
sweetheart, Dolores (Dean), does everything she can to help him and she wheedles Pedro, a renowned
bullfighter (Matthew Betz), into helping him, too. Gallito becomes a success, but he is vamped by Ardita
(Claire Delorez) after Pedro is killed in the ring. Dolores becomes a dancer at a cabaret owned by Cavallo
(Stuart Holmes), and when he tries to attack her, Gallito comes to her rescue. Dolores, however, is still
steaming over their rift and refuses to reconcile with him. She discovers that Cavallo is plotting to drug
Gallito the next time he is in the ring, which will certainly mean his death. In spite of Ardita's attempts to
stop her, Dolores escapes and rushes to the bullring. She kills the bull with a sword before it can do in
Gallito, and finally the couple are reunited. When Cavallo's treachery is discovered, he is attacked by an
angry mob.
