Warning on Immigrants in 1920 Film

Large scale immigration into the U.S. from eastern and southern Europe was cut off during World War I. In the 1920s, new legislation was enacted which sharply curtailed a renewal of the immigrant flow. Eastern and southern Europe was feared as a source of leftists, anarchists, and terrorists. The plot of this silent film involves an American who is temporarily seduced by a band of immigrants seeking to create mayhem in the context of a labor dispute.
