"Seven Little Australians."
Sir Benjamin Fuller has decided to engage in film production. His first picture will be
"Seven Little Australians" based on the well- known book by Ethel Turner.
After that, he is considering a story about Father Damien, who worked with the lepers at Molokai, and a screen version of Norman Lindsay's "Redheap," which was banned as
"Seven little Australians" will be directed by Arthur Greville Collins, who arrived from Hollywood five weeks ago. Mr Collins has been working for Warner Brothers for the past eleven years. he made 'Thank You Jeeves," "personal Maid," Nobody's Fool," and The Widow from Monte Carlo."
Sir Benjamin Fuller proposes to send Mr. Collins on a tour of all the States, making film tests of promising children for "Seven Little Australians." One child will be en-
gaged in each State and one in New Zea- land. The picture will be photographed in the Commonwealth laboratory studio at the Showground. Sir Benjamin says that it will be ready for release by Christmas.
