Possibly the least surprising announcement in Second Run’s history (given the “surprise hit with Baron Munchausen” and “available 4K masters of other Zeman films” combo), but hugely welcome anyway.

This film goes by a lot of different names--it's also known as The Fabulous World of Jules Verne. I have the Italian DVD calling it La diabolica invenzione, which includes the stellar Zeman short Inspirace as an extra.

A literal translation of the original would be Destructive Invention, so out of the official English titles Second Run has sensibly picked the closest.

Oh it's a better title, I just didn't initially realize this was a film I have already seen and even own!

I hope Inspirace makes it on the Second Run release! Utilizes a truly unique medium for animation: glass figures, manipulated by melting and resculpting.
