Storyline

In the little Italian home the wife feels she is neglected and apparently it seems that her husband's love is growing cold, for he has become decidedly indifferent. She, therefore, plans with her cousin to arouse his love through jealousy. At an Italian picnic, after repeated vain efforts to draw her husband's attentions toward her, she starts off with her cousin, passing in view of her husband. His fiery nature is violently aroused with jealousy, and rushing home in a towering rage, would have wreaked disaster to the entire family, for his terrible suspicion poisons his mind even against his two little children. He learns the truth, however, and realizes now to what extreme the result of his neglect would have driven him. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The picture gets a pretty firm grip on a very human situation
26 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

One doesn't need to be told that the workman's wife in this picture is Italian, or at least of Southern blood; nor that her husband is Irish, that is, not while he remembers that he is Irish. The man loves her, but because he doesn't show it as an Italian would, she feels that he is cold. An Irishman likes to light his own pipe, while an Italian likes to have his wife hold the match. The wife tries to waken her husband's love through jealousy, and very nearly brings about a tragedy. The man overhears a conversation just in time and understands. The picture gets a pretty firm grip on a very human situation, and is fairly well designed. It is a picture worthwhile seeing. If the acting is not equally careful in all the scenes, in the best scenes it is fine. - The Moving Picture World, October 21, 1911
