Per il babbo (English:For Daddy) is a 1913 Italian silent film directed by Umberto Paradisi and starring Tonino Giolino..[1]

Plot[edit]

Young Tonino sent by his parents to collect his father's paycheck from Ambrosio Film Studios. The studio informs Tonino that his father has been fired because he was absent from work for months due to illness. Tonino does not tell his parents that his father is out of work. Walking through Valentino Park, Tonino passes a Pasquali film troupe struggling to perfect a scene. Tonino steps in and outperforms the original protagonist, earning himself a role in the film and some money to take home as a replacement for his father's lost salary. Tonino's natural ability quickly earns him a film career, which Tonino initially hides from his parents. After discovering Tonino is often absent from school, his mother follows him one day and discovers her son's new career. The film ends with Ambrosio Film Studios agreeing to rehire Tonino's father as a bookkeeper, and promising to only film with Tonino during school vacations.

Legacy[edit]

Director Umberto Paradisi was known for directing films starring children[2]. Per il babbo was an early film directed by Paradisi featuring a child protagonist[3]. This short film served as a precursor for later Paradisi films which also portrayed young stars, a specialization which became a staple in Paradisi's work. The director received particular critical notoriety for the 1929 feature film Il figlio del corsaro (English: The Pirate's Son)[4]

Paradisi was the owner of Pasquali Film Company. Pasquali Film was known for producing the 1913 film Spartaco (English: Spartcus), as well as the Polidor films starring Ferdinand Guillaume[5]. Pasquali Film was a competitor to Ambrosio Film, another film studio based in Turin during the early days of cinema[6]. Paradisi publicizes Ambrosio Film in Per il babbo as the studio that hires Tonino, despite the rivalry between the two Turin-based companies.
