| San Fernando Valley as North Korea
The Bells Of San Fernando is an independent production and small wonder that no studio would touch it. It was written by Duncan Renaldo who made the hero of his Spanish California drama a wandering Irishman played by Donald Woods complete with phony brogue and all.

Monte Blue is a Spanish Don who owns the land in San Fernando Valley. But he lives in Spain and turns over the affairs of his estate to overseer Anthony Warde. Warde who runs the place like Kim family runs North Korea wants to marry Gloria Warren, but she likes Woods. In addition there's gold discovered here some fifty years before the Gold Rush. The priest wants to make a church bell using it as an alloy. But others have more secular ideas about what to do with it.

This was one strange story and hard to believe it came from one of the people who played the Cisco Kid. Warde comes over like Snidely Whiplash, Woods' accent is totally unconvincing and the story is laughable.

After seeing this, no one wanted to make the San Fernando Valley their home.
