CABIRIA

GIOVANNI PASTRONE / Italy 1914 / 163 minutes / rated PG.Silent with Italian intertitles, and with Live Piano Accompaniment by Forrester Pyke

An Italian historical epic that ran a full 14 reels (over three hours) at a time when most American films were still short subjects. The plot hinges on the abduction of wealthy and virginal Cabiria (Lidia Quaranta) by pirates during the Roman/Carthaginian War of ancient times. Highlights (many of which were filmed on tinted stock) include the burning of the Roman fleet, an effect accomplished with miniatures and mirrors, and Hannibal's crossing of the Alps – with real Alps, and real elephants.
