AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A clever story takes the audience back to the time of the "Floradora" sextette, and is mainly concerned in the love affairs of two players, Mary Elliot (Zara Clinton) and Courtland Nixon (Rawdon Blahdford). Opportunity has been taken to translate to the screen pleasing studies of Australian girlhood in artistic settings, and among many exciting incidents Is a daring rescue from a burning building.'

American Combine : Australasian Films Ltd., and Block Bookings Stephen Gaunson , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: Studies in Australasian Cinema , vol. 9 no. 3 2015; (p. 241-252)
'The 1927–1928 Commonwealth Royal Commission on the Moving Picture Industry in Australia followed a series of public inquiries into the Australian cinema. One agenda of the Commission was to examine the dominance of American movies in Australian film exhibition. By concentrating on how the Commission explored this issue, as it related to the exhibition and distribution of Hollywood movies in Australia, here I will consider the extent to which Australian exhibition has been guided by and dependent on American movies. With the Commission established, in part, to explore the accusation of an American combine ruling the exhibition industry, and stunting the local production sector, the real question was whether the Commissioners would be persuaded to make recommendations to wrest the powers from America, and consequently redirect the local exhibition industry's dependence on Hollywood movies.'
