The Mexican Legend of a Bandit adopts a decidedly sympathetic point-of-view towards its title character-at least up until the final reels. Raul de Anda plays Benito Canales, a basically honest peon forced into a life of crime by a corrupt official. To break up Canales' romance with the lovely Isabel (Susana Guizar), the villain trumps up a murder charge against our hero. With only three followers, Canales conducts a reign of terror against his enemies, both real and imagined. Hardened by his experiences, Canales ends up betraying all those who love and believe in him, including a well-meaning priest (Miguel Angel Ferriz).
