Hopewell attends a fandango in the village and falls in love with Margarita Foquerora. Among the attendants at the function is Ramon Valenzuella, a dashing outlaw, who, with some of his leaders, is incognito. He tries to gain the favor of the fair Margarita but is repulsed in favor of Hopewell. He leaves vowing vengeance. He visits the mission, steals the cash bag and makes away with it. Hopewell makes up a party and starts in pursuit, overtakes the outlaw and after a sharp fight gets the money back.

There is a beautifully danced fandango
26 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

There is a good deal in this picture that isn't wholly clear; but the story shows that an American, a captain in the Mexican service, saves certain funds stolen from the church by a bandit and wins a girl. There is a beautifully danced fandango in it and this helps it out as an offering. We like the acting and the scenes. It is not a great, but a serviceable picture. W.A. Corey is the author and the script was produced by Lem Parker. Harry Otto plays the priest; H.A. Lockwood, the American; E. Loveridge, the heroine, and Al. Garcia, the bandit. Gordie Colwell dances. The photography as a whole is clear. - The Moving Picture World, April 12, 1913
