| Swashbuckling Fun With Douglas Fairbanks
He is feared by men and adored by women - but only one woman will tame him. He acknowledges no creed, but only One Faith will claim him. No jail shall hold him or treasure elude him. He is South America's greatest bandit and soon the fate of the Andes' most venerated shrine will be in his hands. He is THE GAUCHO.

Douglas Fairbanks was at the pinnacle of his fame when he made this wonderful adventure film. His buoyant on-screen charm is matched only by his superb & graceful athleticism. He is secure in his position as one of the very greatest of cinema legends.

Lupe Velez makes a fiery & beautiful love interest as the Mountain Girl, flirting or fighting with Fairbanks at every twist of the plot; Nigel De Brulier as The Padre & Eve Southern as the Girl of The Shrine are saintly in their supporting roles. That's Mary Pickford in a cameo as the Virgin Mary. And once seen, who can ever forget The Victim of the Black Doom?

The sets and the special effects shots - using glass mattes - are exceptional. The very long City of the Miracles set is one of the finest ever created for a silent film.
