St. Anthony of Padua Film
St. Anthony of Padua, directed by Count Giulio Antamoro, 1931. Film provided by and posted with permission of La Cineteca del Friuli, Gemona, Italy, http://www.cinetecadelfriuli.org/.
The film has three basic parts in the following order:
- 1. St Anthony's childhood, vocation, formation, ordination, and work as a priest;
- 2. A recounting of some of the saint's miracles. The one that describes his bilocation to save his patron is filmically interesting;
- 3. A most extraordinary piece of historical footage centering on the Cathedral at Padua that documents the celebration in 1931 of the 700th anniversary of St. Anthony's transitus.
