Trivia

For many years this early science fiction film from Italy was regarded as lost. Some reels of the Portuguese release version were discovered in Brazil. The discovered film amounted to 740 meters which is believed to be approximately 40% of the complete film. Luckily, the discovered footage came from the later part of the film and included some of the special effects and the battle of the two robots in the Opera House. By mid-2006, this is the only footage known to survive. See more »

They probably shouldn't have bothered to put this on DVD
13 September 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

THE MECHANICAL MAN was a silent film that was assumed lost. However, recently about 40% of the film was discovered and released on DVD along with a really bad copy of Will Rogers' HEADLESS HORSEMAN. Since most of the film is still lost, the company that released the film used a long written explanation of the plot and cards were used to explain missing sequences. However, the film still turned out to be extremely confusing and rather pointless--so much so that I really wished they hadn't bothered to release it--just conserve it until one day when (hopefully) the rest can be found. Sure, the robot fighting sequences were pretty cool for 1921, but this couldn't save this confusing mess of a "restoration". Save your money and buy a DVD that is complete--or at least more than half complete.
