L'uomo meccanico

IT 1921. PC: Milano Film. D: André Deed. Starring André Deed, Valentina Frascaroli. Orig. 1821 m, surviving 850 m /16 fps/ 46'. Beautifully tinted. São Paulo 1992. ♪ Marco Dalpane. Saturday 9 July 2005, Cinéma Lumière 1, Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna. Having seen this film before, I just checked the beginning of one of Deed's first feature films, the second part of a ciné-roman, a follow-up to Il documento umano (1920). It's quite ambitious and impressive film involving a robot, one of the earliest in the history of the cinema.
