A contemporary advertisement in the Sydney Morning Herald reads:
'MR. SPENCER has produced at great expense the true story of
the notorious Australian outlaw, making no attempt to glorify his doing or palliate the heinousness of his crimes, but presenting the subject in such a way as will point a strong moral lesson, and show the ultimate fate of all evil-doers, for
THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH.'
