Storyline

With the advent of the Gringos, or white people, into Old Mexico, many picturesque, and often-times thrilling romances took places. One in particular that was long remembered on the Mexican border was that of Ysobel Juan and the young American doctor, Frank Livingston. As was the custom in Mexican families, Don Juan, Ysobel's father, had arranged for her to marry young Jose, the son of a rich neighboring Don. Ysobel, just passing sixteen and with a mind of her own, had other views upon the subject of her own marriage, and Jose did not figure in them. So when the handsome, young Dr. Livingston made his appearance upon the scene and began to cast longing eyes towards Ysobel, that hoydenish young lady straightway fell head over heels in love with him, much to the disgust of Jose. This jealousy found its climax on the day that Ysobel and Livingston went horseback riding together out along the Verduga Gorge.

When the Americans first began to stray over the line
31 December 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A romance of the days in old Mexico when the Americans first began to stray over the line. It is an interesting story. Ysobel was intended for Jose, the son of a neighboring landowner, but she had no heart for marriage, until she met Dr. Livingston, a young American. Jose, to injure the doctor, cut his saddle girth, with the result that a bad fall into a gully ensued. In response to Ysobel's calls for help Jose responded, but refused to give assistance until Ysobel promised to marry him in return for the rescue. The Spaniard later on took some of his associates to the spot to show them how it was done. A rearing horse tumbled him down the embankment and killed him. When Ysobel heard the news she almost laughed. The doctor got a bride. The story is well told. - The Moving Picture World, July 27, 1912
