Extraordinary Adventures of Saturnino Farandola (1914)

This movie poster for the 1914 film L'Avventure Straordinarissime di Saturnino Farandola (The Extraordinary Adventures of Saturnino Farandola) was drawn by Albert Robida. This version of the (paleo)future appears to involve riding sea creatures while shooting magical underwater firearms.
