We cannot see any reason for portraying such sentiments
A good study, illustrating the tenacity of purpose which is such an important component of average Sicilian character. There is plenty of stiletto work, some shooting and a dogged persistence in trailing which would do credit to a Sherlock Holmes. The story is a simple one of love and jealousy, with the peculiar characteristics of the people represented carefully worked out. As one watches the pictures, noting the work of the separate actors, it seems like one of the most consistent films the Biograph Company has ever put out. Costuming and surroundings are faithfully reproduced, with details introduced which add materially to its attractiveness. It is an example of making a somewhat repulsive subject interesting, and, as such, reflects credit on the producers; but judging from the comments we have heard, the subject itself and the graphic portrayal is a bit too repellent for select audiences. In most Biograph pictures there is a good moral or an episode of real life that is made interesting and instructive, but we cannot see any reason for portraying such sentiments as are expressed "In Little Italy." - The Moving Picture World, January 8, 1910
