Argentine Love is a 1924 American silent romantic drama film directed by Allan Dwan and based on a short story by Vicente Blasco Ibanez that stars Bebe Daniels.[1][2]


As described in a review in a film magazine,[3] during a two year absence in the United States, the guardians of Consuelo Garcia (Daniels) arrange her marriage to Juan Martin (Cortez), who lives in the same hometown in Argentina. However, she is in love with the American Philip Sears (Rennie), who is coming to her country to build a bridge, so she turns Juan down. Juan is furious and vows to kill anyone who comes between them, and does kill Rafael (Gonzales), the son of Senator Cornejo (Majeroni), after he sees him flirting with Consuelo. Juan sends a warning to Philip, who comes immediately. In the meantime, the populace vent their spite on Consuelo, beating her while she is tied to the end of a cart. Philip rescues her. To save his life, she pretends love for Juan, and Philip puts on Juan's cloak and hat to aid their escape. Consuelo tells Juan that she will marry him, but that she does not love him. Juan returns to the house and, saying that an Argentine is not to be outdone in gallantry by an American, gives himself up to the crowd and is shot by the murdered young man's father. Philip and Consuelo then find their path to happiness unobstructed.
