aka KLIOU, THE KILLER - no longer a lost film, 30 November 2004

Originally released as KLIOU, THE KILLER - this film was considered lost up until a few years ago. It was found in 16 mm black and white (originally shot in two-strip Technicolor, the last film to be photographed in this process)in a private collection and added to the Milestone DVD release of LEGONG just this past month.

It is a very simple tale of a killer tiger, menacing a village in Indo-China (now Viet Nam) and the young brave who hunts and kills it. Nothing in the camera work or editing is above the ordinary, although seeing it in color must have added immensely to its visual quality.

Oddly the film was both the last silent film ever made and the last in the two-strip Technicolor process, which had been discontinued the year before. Of value only for those interested in docudramas. It's historical value, aside from the above, is in the fact that it is the earliest known footage of Indo-China in film history.

Its original length is 55 minutes, although several minutes were shorn due to the natural bare bosoms of the native women that offended censors of the day.
