Obviously This is Missing Footage
9 February 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Pinocchio (1911)

Geppetto (Augusto Mastripietri) takes a piece of wood and turns it into a puppet named Pinocchio (Ferdinand Guillaume) who eventually comes to life.

This Italian film from director Giulio Antamoro was the first time the story was told and I must admit that I found it to be quite entertaining. I've seen a couple different sources list the running time somewhere between forty and fifty-minutes but the print I viewed was only five-minutes so obviously these sources are either wrong or the movie is only available in a much shorter version.

I'm going to guess that the majority of the film is lost and we're just left with the five-minutes. We see Geppetto getting the piece of wood and turning it into Pinocchio. We also see Pinocchio in Toyland. The film pretty much ends on a cliffhanger, which is another reason to believe that most of the footage is missing. It's really too bad because I liked the look of Pinocchio and especially early on when we see the tree and the puppet just coming into form.
