Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Produced and directed by former cameraman Charles R. Seeling, this low-budget silent melodrama starred action hero George Larkin as an American caught up in a Central American revolution. En route to Sevilla, "Central America," Richard Morton rescues lovely Dolores (Billie Dove) from bandits. Morton brings the girl with him to his father's (Arthur Millett) ranch but finds the place overrun with revolutionists led by evil Rodolfo Emanon (Earl Schenk). Allying himself with the counter-revolutionists, Richard saves the life of the country's president, Dominguez (J.L. Powell), Dolores' father. Written by Western specialist George H. Plympton, Yankee Madness also featured serial star Walter Long and Larkin's real-life wife Ollie Kirby.
