Robinson Crusoe as a 1947 Soviet film… and a 1980 English [1870s] French operetta.

I want to see this 3D Soviet 1947 adventure version discussed by Eisenstein as the way of the future – (non glasses stereoscopic) – Robinson Crusoe (1947 film) – don’t have much on it but some Wikipedia
— Read on en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robinson_Crusoe_(1947_film)

 

And then there is also this – Jacques Offenbach (yes, of whom Siegfried Krakauer writes) composed an opera of the Robinson story (opera comique, so operetta, heading towards vaudeville, defence of colonial ways etc) that was rendered into English and performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in 1980. Need to also find more on this, in particular the rendering of friday. Good grief:
