"A rattling good story, which deals with the adventures of an all-round athlete." (Publisher's blurb The Cards of Fortune [1922])

While the film was in no way a war film, it was still advertised via a connection to the then-ongoing conflict:

EMPIRES TO-NIGHT.

Will screen the great Australian photo-play "In the Last Stride," 4000 ft. chock full of thrills and based on something that Australians have made themselves famous for all the world over, sport, featuring the charming Australian picture girl Alma Rock Phillips, and the retired heavy-weight champion, Dave Smith. The finest sporting story ever screened. Sunlock wins in the last stride. See the water police, smugglers, book makers, jockeys, footballers, barrackers, fight officials, station hands, etc by well known members of Sydney sporting clubs. See the great football match, the fight on the field, ordered off—really a rollicking sporting picture by Australian artists, showing the mighty Anzacs at home.
