The film:

Mary Cleo Tarlanini and Eleuterio Rodolfi, favourites of the early Italian screens, are clandestine lovers. A “one thousand banknote” passes from hand to hand, risking to reveal their affair. An example of mischievous comedy,a genre that Ridolfi often starred and sometimes directed. 


The film restoration:

The preservation of Il biglietto da mille (S.A. Ambrosio, 1912) was carried out in June 2009 by the Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna and the Museo Nazionale del Cinema di Torino at the L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory, from a positive tinted nitrate copy with German intertitles, conserved at the Museum in Torino.
