After his wife is killed as the result of an attack by the lecherous Marques De Bazan (Gustav Von Seyffertitz), Dorando ( Pedro De Cordoba ), an officer of the Spanish army becomes an outlaw and becomes known as El Bandolero. He soon seeks revenge by kidnapping the Marques' young son, Ramón ( Paul Ellis ), and hands him over to be raised by one of his own men. When Ramón grows up he falls in love with Dorando's beautiful daughter, Petra (Renée Adorée). Dorando forbids the match, so Ramón leaves and becomes a bullfighter. When Ramón turns down the advances of Concha (Dorothy Rush), she vindictively asks the Marques to order him to kill a bull before it has been worn out. Only after Ramón is gored does the Marques discover that he is his own son. He rushes to Ramón's bedside and begs forgiveness from both his son and Dorando. Dorando, who has been made chief of the mountain police, accepts the apology. Ramón recovers and Dorando gives him and Petra his blessings.
This 1924 romance/drama was based on the novel The Bandolero by Paul Gwynne, ( 1904 ). Filmed on locations in Cuba and Spain, and produced by Metro-Goldwyn Pictures Corporation, this film may now be a lost silent. Hopefully a copy survives and resurfaces for public viewing.
