'"Breaking the News'' is the principal film. It is an exciting drama of goldfield life, founded on Mr. John Longstaff's famous painting of the same name. The scene depicting the flooded mine and the rescue of the imprisoned men is most realistic. The picture, which is entirely an Australian production, was loudly applauded at its conclusion.'
