I saw a reference in The Economist (11/4) to a recent discovery of "the only
known known film record of Captain Alfred Dreyfus during the retrial of 1899
that resulted in his pardon." The article was generally about the silent
film fest at Pordenone Italy, but this bit of information comes at the tail
end, and doesn't state specifically that it was shown at the festival. Does
anyone have any ideas of where this film might repose?
On a related topic, one of our professors swore that the first filmed trial
was Nuremberg. The earliest Iam certain of was the Lindbergh/Hauptman
(1935) case. Does anyone know of earlier ones. (I mean real trials as
opposed to features, and moving pictures as opposed to stills)?
