'"The Blue Mountains Mystery" is an Australian photoplay that is different. Here is a story of the sunlight and shadows of our own society, of a man shot dead on the night of a vivid storm when thunder drowned the sound of the revolver report, and the guests at a great ball laughed and jested while grim tragedy stalked but a floor above them.'
