Little is known about the low-budget Love of Paquita, but it's a safe guess that the film belied the name of its production company, Hi-Mark Films. Set in Spain, the story details the trials and tribulations of the title character, played by Marilyn Mills. Since Mills was hired for her skills as a horsewoman, it hardly mattered that she couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag. In fact, when the film opened in New York, its marquee display emphasized the horses appearing in the picture, as if to admit that they were indeed the stars of the proceedings. Variety played along with this, giving the horses the best reviews.
