Go And Get It (1920)
« on: February 01, 2023, 05:16:11 PM »
Long presumed lost, this pulpy Hollywood feature has turned up in its Italian release version (as Le Avventure di un Reporter) and had a one-off screening at the Gothique Film Society in London.

From The Cinema Museum: "We are absolutely delighted to be presenting Go and Get It, as this silent horror was long thought to be a ‘lost’ film. Hearing that a 35mm print had turned up in the archives at Cineteca Milano, our intrepid member Barry Woolgar made contact – and not only did he obtain a digital copy, he also obtained their authorisation for one showing at the Gothique Film Society! The source turned out to be the original Italian 35mm nitrate release print. So not only does the film have an Italian title, the inter-titles are in Italian! Fortunately, Selene Marotta, one of the Cinema Museum volunteers, has very kindly stepped in and translated them. The film will also be accompanied by John Sweeney on the piano. So this will be a truly unique occasion.

The film itself is considered the fore-runner of the ‘killer gorilla’ horrors that would feature so heavily in the decades to come, with mad Dr. Ord putting a criminal’s brain into an ape. What could possibly go wrong?!"

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity...

I remember the photo of Bull Montana (as the ape-man) in Famous Monsters. Another lost film found!

Wow, I remember that photo too. What a great find! Hoping we'll see a DVD at some point.
