Storyline

Because of his financial trouble, Don Almeda (Noah Beery) promises his daughter, Maria (Barbara Bedford), to Don Alvarez (Albert Prisco). But Maria does not love Don Alvarez, and, in fact, she falls in love with Terry O'Neil (Elliott Sparling), a stranger who has been wounded by robbers associated with Alvarez. O'Neil takes Alvarez's place at a masked ball. Alvarez, in turn, robs the old Padre (John Herdman) of some pearls and stabs him to deal with O'Neil's knife. He then accuses O'Neil of the murder and tries to shoot him, but wounds Maria instead, because she has thrown herself in front of him. Maria recovers, and, after proving that Alvarez is a thief and a killer, weds O'Neil. Written by moviefanintheusa

Love is powerful
7 January 2002 | by yodahunkSee all my reviews

According to one reference book, this is the first 3-D movie, not Bwana Devil, which is usually given that honor. So any quiz show that accepts Bwana Devil as an answer is three decades off. (The book is called Great Events of the 20th Century). But then I guess Bwana Devil was the first one to come out during the short-lived 3-D craze of the 50's.
