Austns. 'should get

film chance

It was a shame Australian actors and actresses, who were equal to the world's best, had to go abroad to make a name for them' selves, film-producer Mr. Arthur G, Collins said

in Adelaide today* HfR. Collins produced the Aus aL tralian film 'Strong is the Seed,' which will have its world premiere at the Majestic Theatre on Friday night. He said:— 'I dont make this claim idly, because Z have pro

duced for the stage and screen in England and America. Australians should make films for world markets right here in Australia. They have everything: in their favor. ? 'As well as acting, the tech nical side is at least as good as anywhere else.' Mr. Collins said Adelaide audiences would see many radio people in 'Strong is the Seed,' a 90-minutes feature film. Cast included Guy Dolman, Maree Marsden, Lloyd Lamble, Queenie Ash ton, Frank Brad ley, Eric Reiman Nellie Lam port, George Randall, Enid Lorimer, Alfred Bristowe, Har vey Adams, Ossie Wenburn, June Mendoza, Ben Lewin, and John Cazabon.
