This silent classic focuses on Rosita (Mary Pickford), a young Spanish woman who’s fed up with the disparities between her country’s privileged and poor. A gutsy protest singer, Rosita performs a song that takes issue with the Spanish king’s (Holbrook Blinn) highfalutin ways. Soon, though, she’s being courted by the very man whose lavish lifestyle inspired her angry lyrics. Quite by accident, Rosita finds herself in a love triangle that makes her once simple life much more complicated.
