In this swashbuckling period-piece, Gino Cervi portrays the title character, a masked knight who helps both peasants and nobles escape the tyranny of wealthy aristocrats in the 1600s. In the process, he falls in love with a peasant girl (Luisa Ferida), saves gullible duchess Rina Morelli from a golddigging count (Osvaldo Valenti), and becomes a local legend.
