Stage legend Blanche Ring, of Rings on My Fingers, Bells on My Toes fame, was the star of this three-reel Morosco production. Described as a "comedy melodrama," the film was set in Mexico, with Ring cast as all-American tourist Jessie Gordon. As expected, our heroine becomes enmeshed in a scheme to overthrow the government of President Ambroce Castroba (Herbert Standing). It goes without saying that the Mexican stereotypes exhibited herein would not pass muster in these more enlightened times. Blanche Ring may have been a bit too old for her character, but none of her fans was heard complaining.
