Cast & Crew
In the tiny Latin American country of Altamura, American architect, sculptor, and adventurer Larry Donovan is executing a magnificent palace for the vain, diminutive Governor Romero, who is angered by Larry's lack of respect. After leading his co-workers in a riotous Fourth of July celebration, Larry responds to the insults of Generalissimo Pedro Mendez by knocking him out. Mendez' sweetheart Rosa, plotting for Mendez to be governor, hides him in the mountains and fakes his funeral so that Larry will be executed and Romero thrown out. When Larry is taken to the whitewashed execution wall, however, he appeals to Romero's conceit and gets a one-week reprieve to build a statue of Romero for the palace. Before his time is up, Larry receives a gun in jail from an Irish friend using the name of Patricio Cassidano, who also proves that Larry did not kill the now deceased Mendez. After he uses Romero as a shield to escape, Larry obtains Romero's consent to marry his pretty niece Concha.
