A WEOTBRNMADSTRAiDIAN FOiLM.
The production of . . -Down Under, a Western Australian picture, which was begun a few' months ago, is. nearing. comf pletion, a-nd the' producer (Mr. H.Sxyuth-.'
well) . .expects to oe' ai-ie next weeK ,to submit the tfihn for reyiew by the \direc.r tors of the company financing the venture. Judging from -the samples of film wait ing' to be assembled '--in 'the company's office in King-art re et, the photography leaves' nothing' to be desired. It appears to' be .clear and consistent throughout, and the takirig. of -some- of the sceneet srjch as those of a 'cattle: stampede and a. trobting race; -which are important fea tures of the . etory, must have involved s considerable degree of skill and -patienc^ on the part ? of the ? photogrepber. The plot is. out of the ordinary. There is a ieliglbtftil, -16v«p theme, which does not; however, develop along1 conventional lines, inasmuch as the heroine dies -^and the hero later sacrifices' his life for the sake at . his- dead sweetheart's little boy. The settings, all of-'which are ?Western Ans tralian, i include scenes in King's Paris; in the city proper, and ou-Saristoun. Sta tion, on the 'Eastern Goldfielda.
