George Beban, J. Frank Burke, Fanny Midgley

Director: Reginald Barker

An immigrant leaves his sweetheart in Italy to find a better life across the sea in the grimy slums of New York. He finally earns the money to be reunited with his love and they marry. But life in New York is hard and tragedy strikes with the death of his infant son after he is wrongfully jailed and unable to provide. An astonishingly accomplished film for its time. Stunningly shot with lighting effects that are truly sublime, this is an early gem that clearly reveals Reginald Barker to be a pioneer director of equal standing to D. W. Griffith and Maurice Tourneur
