When the five-reel Italian production Human Wolves was released in the U.S., it was publicized as The Pulsing Triumph of the Photoplay Art. In truth, it was the turgid tale of a retired actress, who, coaxed back on-stage for a charity performance, falls in love with her much-younger leading man. She decides to run off with her new lover, but not before leaving behind a "Dear John" letter for her wealthy husband. One year later, the actress and her paramour are forced to give up the stage when he begins losing his memory. He takes to drink, quickly ruining himself and his live-in sweetheart. Before long, he has become a criminal, keeping the heroine in the dark as to his means of income. The story reaches a feverish climax when the actor-turned-crook kidnaps the daughter of a wealthy man; the kidnapped is, of course, the heroine's own daughter.
