This family drama set in Argentina was filmed at low-budget Tec-Art Studios in Hollywood by fringe filmmakers Arthur Varney and Ralph Cloninger. The latter also headed a "no-name" cast as Don Rafael Casandos, the son of Argentinean rancher Don José (Harry Holden). The latter is engaged in a long-standing feud with his foster-brother, Don Escamillo (Edwards Davis), who each year presents him with a "gift of hate." As the time for the gift draws near, Don José sends his son to spy on the enemy. Naturally, Don Rafael falls in love with the daughter of the house, Mariquita (Anne Drew). Their mutual affection eventually settles the feud for good. A low-budget Romeo and Juliet variant, Winds of the Pampas was distributed by Poverty Row company Hi-Mark, a clearing house for independent product.
