Walter Long, Rudolph Valentino, Nita Naldi, Rosa Rosanova
Raised in poverty, Juan Gallardo (the legendary Rudolf Valentino), dreams of becoming one of Spain's most successful matadors. He is supported by his virtuous and faithful wife, and eventually amasses the fortune he once strived for. Unfortunately, as his ego seeps into his personal life, the great matador becomes involved with a wealthy and seductive widow. The affair not only foreshadows a reversal of fortune, but also affects Juan's future circumstances.
