This is the story of Gato, an Italian immigrant, who lives with his wife, Marie, and his younger brother, Giuseppe, on a small truck farm in the west. Gato becomes so intent on his work that he neglects to show his wife the little attentions she demands. A foppish wandering Italian, Sandro, sees in this an opportunity to work his ends, but is prevented by the timely interference of Giuseppe. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

This will be a very acceptable offering
21 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This same situation was recently used in a Pathe offering, "Broken Hearts," which was a little better than the present in photography and in acting, and also a little more concise in reaching its climax. To such as haven't seen the other, this will be a very acceptable offering. It is like a translation of the other to fit the Italian characters. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
