Ricardo Cortez is The Gun Runner in this Tiffany-Stahl programmer. It all begins when devil-may-care Julio (Cortez) sets about to quell a South American revolution. Julio changes his mind when he falls in love with Inez (Nora Lane), sister of insurrectionist Garcia (Gino Corrado). Casting his lot with the revolutionaries, Julio is eventually arrested as a traitor. As he faces the firing squad, our hero discovers who his real friends are in the nick of time. One of a plethora of banana-republic actioners of the 1920s, The Gun Runner was based on a novel by Arthur Stringer.
