'"Australia Calls," Spencer's Australian production that has caused so much excitement on the mainland, is the star feature of the now programme at the Princess Theatre to-night. It is 500ft. [sic] in length, and is Spencer's masterpiece production. It shows the invasion of Australia by a Mongolian race, and the great response made by Australia's sons at the call. The synopsis contains scenes of Australians at play, at the races, at football, the call to arms, the burning of Sydney, the enemy in possession, Australian mobilising, the capture of the wireless station, treachery, in the hands of the enemy, Australian bushmen rallying, tapping the overhead telegraph wires, the charge of the lancers, and ride for life, William E. Hart (Australia's aviator) to the rescue. The riding is said to be.splendid, and the picture most impressive.'
