Luciano Emmer, one of Italy's foremost purveyor of art-oriented short subjects, collaborated with Lauro Venturi on the direction of the feature-length Leonardo da Vinci. The life and work of da Vinci is re-created with lovingly detailed close-ups of his paintings, sculptures, etchings and inventions. Surprisingly, there is a great deal of movement to be found in what is essentially a series of "stills." The incisive English-language narration is provided by Albert Dekker. The principal attractions of Leonardo da Vinci are the musical score by Roman Vlad and the color cinematography of Mario Craveri, Antonio Harispe, Andre Thomas and Boris Kaufman.
