Notorious Mexican bandit Pancho López recognizes Gilbert Jones as the man who once saved his life; therefore, when Jones is in danger of losing his ranch for default of mortgage payment, López determines to help him. At the same time, Morgan Pell, intending to swindle Jones out of his potentially oil-rich property, offers him a sum of money, which Jones conditionally accepts. When López discovers that Jones and Mrs. Pell are in love he has Pell shot, then robs a local bank, pays the mortgage, and returns the cattle he has stolen. With Mr. Pell out of the way and the ranch secure, Jones and Mrs. Pell are free to marry.

A Spanish-language version of this film, El hombre malo, was shot simultaneously with the English-language version. A French version, López, le bandit was also made in 1930, but no evidence of its U.S. exhibition has been found. The French version was directed by Jean Daumery and starred Geymond Vital, Jeanne Helbling, Gaston Glass and Suzy Vernon. Other adaptations of Porter Emerson Browne's play include a 1923 version, directed by Edwin Carewe and starring Holbrook Blinn, and a 1941 M-G-M production, directed by Richard Thorpe and starring Wallace Beery.
