Vă prezentăm azi un film document. Filmat în 1910, acum 101 ani, în laboratoarele Edison – la fel de SF pentru vremea de atunci, precum ar putea fi CERN pentru noi, este prima versiune filmată a operei SF clasice Frankenstein de Mary Shelley. Imaginea este coperta interioară a ediţiei din 1831. Mai jos aveţi şi comentariul în engleză preluat de pe Youtube.com.
Frankenstein is a 1910 film made by Edison Studios that was written and directed by J. Searle Dawley. It was the first motion picture adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The unbilled cast included Augustus Phillips as Dr. Frankenstein, Charles Ogle as the Monster, and Mary Fuller as the doctor’s fiancée.
Shot in three days, it was filmed at the Edison Studios in the Bronx, New York City. Although some sources credit Thomas Edison as the producer, he in fact played no direct part in the activities of the motion picture company that bore his name.
