Storyline

Early in the thirties, and when all the region now known as California was under Spanish rule. Old San Jose Castillon owned the enormous Rancho San Fernando. He had for neighbor the young and handsome, but dissolute, Don Rafael Morales. The pretty but coquettish daughter of Don Jose gave decided preference to Don Enrique Monteverde, also a neighbor. Her father preferred Don Rafael. The young girl rebelled vigorously. Don Jose argued with Don Rafael, that if Enrique could be discredited in her eyes, the latter's suit might become successful. Don Rafael went his half-breed Indian woman, promising that he would marry her, if she would besmirch Enrique's character. The stratagem nearly had the desired effect, but Morenge, Enrique's servant, overhearing Rafael and the girl agree to marry, tells Ysoleta, who, inflamed by Rafael's treachery, stabs him as he dresses for his marriage. The blame falls on Enrique, but all is righted by Ysoleta's confession, and Don Jose relents and gives his ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

There is plenty of life and incident
10 January 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a picture of California ranch life, with a romance. The story takes place in the early thirties when all that country was under Spanish rule, and is woven around the old San Fernando ranch. Perhaps the principal interest is in its reproduction of that picturesque scenery. The haven of refuge in this instance is the Church. Thither the beautiful daughter of the owner of the ranch repairs, when in the wild passion of a Mexican romance, she has saved herself by stabbing the perfidious suitor. Her confession of her deed saves her true lover. The Padre holds up the cross while the girl drops to the ground in tears. Don Jose forgives his daughter. There is plenty of life and incident, which, together with the picturesque setting, make up a picture that pleased the audience. - The Moving Picture World, April 29, 1911
