Silent-screen stunt man turned action-adventure star Richard Talmadge portrayed a masked rider coming to the rescue of an impoverished but noble Spanish girl ordered by her father to marry a wealthy suitor. This essentially silent Zorro imitation included a few badly dubbed songs by a star who definitely had seen his better days. The German-born Talmadge (née Metzetti and of Italian-Swiss ancestry) had no future as an actor in talkies, and he consequently went behind the camera as a second-unit director.
