A typical outdoors melodrama from Poverty Row company Gotham, Women and Gold was set in a South American gold mine. Taking charge of the mine, Dan Barclay (Frank Mayo) has no time for his wife Myra (Sylvia Breamer) and child Dan Jr. (Frankie Darro). The bored Myra takes off with dapper SeƱor Ortego (William Davidson) but his intentions prove less than honorable and she decides to return to Dan and her child. Unfortunately, there is an accident en route and Myra loses her memory. Dan, meanwhile, is arrested for the attempted murder of Ortego. He escapes from jail along with Ricardo (Tote Du Crow), who also has a grudge against the slippery villain. After Ricardo kills Ortego, Myra's memory is restored and she is reunited with husband and child. Little Frankie Darro was elevated to stardom later that year, appearing opposite Tom Tyler in a series of popular Westerns.
