Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Given the title Fighting Bob, one might think that this 1915 film is the story of Wisconsin politico Bob LaFollette. Not so. The "fighting Bob" hereabouts is a two-fisted American (Orrin Johnson) at large in Central America. The film was unabashed propaganda in favor of the United States horning in on south-of-the-border political affairs. A relic from the "Manifest Destiny" era of American diplomacy, Fighting Bob might not play well today.
