Notes to Barney Oldfield: This movie, photographed at site-specific locations, bridging two time zones, 1919 and a present day when dodos proliferate, offers an alternative universe wherein the last dodo saves her species, and affects the middle-class family values of the explorer who finds her. "The Last Dodo" cannot help but reference King Kong and Mighty Joe Young films. Make no mistake, the original outline for this photoplay arose from viewing Porky in Wackyland.
The 59 minute version of The Last Dodo assembles scenes from the original musical play which runs approximately 85 minutes and is a/k/a Luchino Visconti's Lost Masterwork, THE LAST DODO. Kimberly-Jo Mossel plays both the daughter of the explorer, Maryanne, ages 8 and 88, and Myessence Missolini (The Last Dodo).
