Storyline

An Italian street musician sees a barber making love to his sweetheart, and wants to know the reason of it. The girl promptly tells him that she cannot marry him because he is too poor, hasn't any new clothes and that she must have a good home. The Italian immediately takes his savings and going to the nearest clothing store, buys a whole new outfit. Returning to his home, where a number of his friends have gathered, he joins them in a sociable drink. Feeling something queer in the shoulder of the coat, he discovers a roll of bills amounting to $5,000. A newspaper reporter, who happens to be passing, hears the commotion inside, learns the truth and publishes the story. The next day, the proprietor of the clothing store rushes madly to Giuseppe's home with the intention of getting the money. He is thrown into the street by Giuseppe and his friends.

Nearly everyone in the large cast plays his or her character well
20 April 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A comedy of many amusing characters, but especially of Giuseppe, who finds a big roll of money in a suit that he had "chased" from Isaac's second-hand store. The narrative runs along rather blindly at first; it made us think that Augustus Carney was Giuseppe, but he merely was his friend. Giuseppe is played by E.H. Calvert. Nearly everyone in the large cast plays his or her character well; but John Steppling, as Isaac, had the funniest part. The picture depends more on the wit of its action than on the humor of its characters and Isaac was hardly more commendable than many others. Eleanor Blanchard, Dolores Cassinelli, Ruth Stonehouse, Howard Missimer, Bryant Washburn and Mary Flight also have roles. - The Moving Picture World, January 4, 1913
