Lovely senorita Maria Alvaro (Dorothy Kitchen) is rescued from a gunshot wedding to foppish Senor Valdez (former Charlie Chaplin associate Leo White) practically on the steps to the church by daredevil rider Jim Collins (Bob Steele). The young man simply kidnaps her and holds her until her father (George Bunny) accepts him as a more appropriate son-in-law. The comic Breed of the Sunset was directed by Wallace Fox, a one-time black-face comic and an old hand at these sort of things, and scripted by a young Oliver Drake, whose deft handling of both action and gag humor would be even better utilized in the sound era.
