I enjoyed the movie, "The Immigrants" very much. It is one of the best
films Steven Macht ever played in. He played Daniel so well. The book
is equally good. If you can't see the movie, at least read the book
(it's actually a trilogy). The movie has an excellent story line and
the actors were very good in their parts. I am intrigued with the era
when so many immigrants came to America to search for their fortunes. I
believe it was hard to make that big of a decision then when you did,
it would be fantastic if/when you did make your fortune like Daniel
did. But in the end he gave up his fortune for happiness. Wish I could
get the movie and see it again.
