"MUTINY OF THE BOUNTY." Coming to Wondergraph. "The Mutiny of the Bounty," an Aus- tralian subject, will be screened at the Wondergraph for one week, commencing at the matinee next Wednesday. The film was directed by Mr. W. Longford for Messrs. Crick & Jones, and is probably the most costly production yet made in Australia. In selecting the stirring epi- sodes associated with the historic mutiny on H.M.S. Bounty, and the subsequent
happenings which resulted in the estab- lishment of the turbulent colony at Pit- cairn Island, the producers secured a subject with a strong appeal to the ad- venture-loving Australian. To obtain con- vincing local colour for sections dealing with island incidents an expedition visited New Zealand, and remained there some time. There the services of Maoris were fully availed of and two clever players in Meta Taupopoki and Mere Amohau ap- pear as Otto, a Tahitian chief, and his daughter. Mr. George Cross has the role of Captain Bligh, who, with a number of loyal adherents, was turned adrift in an open boat by Fletcher Christian's fol- lowers. Other artists associated with the Australian stage appearing in the produc- tion are Miss Ida Guildford, Charles Vil- liere, and Miss Lottie Lyall.
