BIANCO AND THE NEW WORLD

Bianco, a Sicilian donkey, and his master, Marco, come to New York to earn their living and find one readymade for them. It materializes when Bianco, whose feet are hurt by the pavement, is taken to the blacksmith's to be shod at the very moment when the men there are having trouble with a wild circus horse named Blackie. Bianco's presence does wonders for Blackie, who calms down immediately, and so Marco and his donkey are hired as performers and valuable companions. The big Palazzo pictures, in brown tints, capture typical, humorous gestures and antics. Fair stitching.
