The “Robinet” films were produced by the Società Anonima Ambrosio, Turin (Italy) and featured Marcel Fabre in the role of Robinet (Tweedledum).
Tweedledum builds an airship and makes a flight. Chimneys are tumbled down, the fragments striking pedestrians in the street, buildings are wrecked, and finally the machine collapses. His downward flight ends after he has been precipitated through a roof and the floors below, and his career as an aviator ends when the police put him in a cell.
