Rescued by Rover (version 2)

GB 1905. PC: Cecil Hepworth. D: Lewin Fitzhamon. 120 m. BFI/NFTVA. ♪ Maud Nelissen. Wednesday 6 July 2005, Cinema Lumière 1, Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna. Mariann Lewinsky: this film, canonized as a milestone of cinema history for its editing, is not very original from a contents point of view. Cinema adopted an old literary motif, and especially around 1905 children are frequently being searched for in films, either because they were stolen, or because they themselves had stolen something.
