I enjoyed this silent movie with a very good incidental live music in the theater. A man is going on his way home to prepare himself for his wedding, and his horse eats a hat, that belonged to a married woman. Her lover demands a new hat - she can't go home without her rare and uncommon "hat made of hay from Italy" - so our hero must find a new one, but remember, today he's going to get married, and the woman's lover threatens to destroy his house if he doesn't arrive on time ... will he find the hat?
