Isn't this the "test reel" that literally only had 50 seconds of an actual train arriving at a station?
There's no scriptwriting involved!
I don't think counting this one in the stats is legitimate. It would be like introducing nature documentaries, of course they are going to fail!

I'm not quite sure if applying the Bechdel test to films that also fail the reverse Bechdel test should be considered for this website. This mostly just tells us that there aren't any (seen) humans in the film.
