the original Steampunk

Consider this a trailer, even though an entire movie is included. The following website has the 8-part series posted, which I intend to watch at some point. In the meantime, take a look at Part 1:

This is a Czech film from 1958, made behind the Iron Curtain, that was adapted from a Jules Verne novel. (Hey wasn’t that crazy Alice movie Stuart reviewed a Czech production, too? What’s in the water there?)
