AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The scene is laid on the outskirts of the Indian Reservation, a country made famous by the exploits of the renowned Buffalo Bill, and the story of the play treats of the adventures of the colonel in charge of the milltary post and a notorious cattle stealer whom he eventually makes captive. The play Is well staged, and the acting Is of a high order, and, on the whole, the film augurs well for the success of the industry in the Commonwealth.'


'Town Hall. Empire Pictures', The Daily News, 11 May 1911, p.5. (Via Trove Australia)


  • The film seems to have been produced by the Australian Life Biograph Company and distributed by Pathé Frères.
