AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The story tells of the love of two brothers for a girl, the younger supplanting his brother in her affections. The younger lad falls in with gamblers, and to recoup himself lends himself to a scheme to nobble his father's race-horse. Later he falls in love with a barmaid, who overhears a plot to rob him. She is caught listening, and held captive, but escapes, and aids the man she loves. In a fight with the robbers, he is wounded, but the care of his barmaid sweetheart restores him. Eventually he marries her, and his brother and former sweetheart are reunited.'

  • Contemporary newspaper reports indicate that this film was based on 'Nat Gould's work of the same title' ('Bijou Pictures', Goulburn Evening Penny Post, 29 June 1912, p.4). However, the earliest publication of Won on the Post by Nat Gould that has been traced so far is a 1918 edition, and the earliest mention in newspapers of a publication by this name by Nat Gould is actually in columns about the film itself.
