A film serial, Stingaree ran to twelve episodes, each released independently at weekly intervals.
Each episode is individually indexed on AustLit.
Overall, the story followed wealthy Englishman Irving Randolph, whose greedy brother grasped the opportunity to denounce him when he accidentally killed a man in a shooting competition. Randolph flees to Australia, where he becomes the Robin Hood-style bandit 'Stingaree', assisted by his sweetheart Ethel and his partner Howie.
The series was followed by The Further Adventures of Stingaree in 1917.
The sequel to Stingaree, The Further Adventures of Stingaree continued the story of the gentleman bushranger Stingaree, falsely accused of murder in England and now living an outlaw's life in Australia.
The Further Adventures of Stingaree does not seem to have been as popular as its predecessor, and there is no trace (currently) of its having been shown in Australia.
'It is a big musical of Australlan early days. Australia is terrorlsed by a debonair, engaging outlaw, "Stingaree" (Richard Dix), who makes raids singlehanded upon the wealthy. Even with the police on his trail, his daring knows no bounds. The drama opens with his capture of Sir Jullan Kent (Conway Tearle) a noted impressario who is on his way to the home of Mr. Clarkson (Henry Stephenson) to listen to the voice of Mrs. Clarkson (Mary Boland) who has grand opera aspirations. "Stingaree" enters the Clarkson home with Kent's credentials and poses as the impressario while prospecting the household for something of value to steal. Himself an amateur musician of much talent, he is impressed by the demure beauty of Hilda Bouverie (Irene Dunne) a dependent in the household. His sympathy goes out to her when he sees her hectored by the flamboyant Mrs. Clarkson, and he is moved to high admiration when he hears her sing, her voice being much superior to that of her aristocratic foster parent. "Stingaree" decides that he will help her to a career, but at this moment the police arrive on his trail and he has to flee. But not alone. He snatches up Hilda and rides away with her on his fine white horse to his lair. At first a resentful victim, Hilda soon becomes reconciled to the bandit, who is all tenderness. In fact, the two fall genuinely In love. As a mark of his devotion "Stingaree" takes Hilda back to the Clarkson home and there at the point of his revolver makes the real Sir Julian Kent and a hundred or so house guests hear her sing and acknowledge her great vocal gifts. This time, as he attempts to escape, he is captured. While he is taken to gaol Hllda is taken to Europe by Kent, who has confirmed "Stingaree's" estimate of her talent. She becomes a great singer, but memories of "Stingaree" lead to dramatic developments.'
