Esra Kincaid takes land by force and, having taken the Espinoza land, his sights are set on the Castro rancho. US government agent Kearney holds him off till the cavalry shows up and he can declare his love for Juanita "The Rose of the Rancho."



The film was remade in 1936 by Paramount and starred John Boles and Gladys Swarthout. "As a vehicle for the cinema debut of Contralto Gladys Swarthout, a revival of David Belasco's famed stage success recommended itself for obvious reasons. Born of U. S. parents and reared in Deep Water, Mo., Miss Swarthout has a Latin appearance well suited to a rigmarole about Spaniards in California and their efforts to hold their ancestral estates against early land-grabbers. Furthermore, the dual roles of Rosita Castro and Don Carlos, masked leader of the Spanish vigilantes, enable her to maintain a tradition which she inaugurated at the Metropolitan Opera."[3]
