Movie Info

Also released as The Gentleman from California, this budget-conscious swashbuckler is strongly reminiscent of The Mark of Zorro. Nineteenth-century California aristocrat Ramon Escobar (Ricardo Cortez) returns after several years' schooling in Spain to discover that his native land is in the hands of corrupt politicians. The villains are systematically forcing the "old" Californian families from their property, using a variety of legal but highly unethical maneuvers. In retaliation, Escobar adopts the guise of a mystery avenger to right all wrongs and re-establish justice. Based on a story by Harold Bell Wright, The Californians was directed by Gus Meins, heretofore most closely associated with Hal Roach's "Our Gang" comedies.
