Comments The chapter of this book (pages 104 - 109) details the screening of the film, including the touring of the film in certain cinema locations across Australia such as the Athenaeum Theatre, and its' success. A large audience attended the matinee premiere of the movie, and the evening show was a "box office sell out". The audience seemed to be impressed with the movie, with critics asserting that the "quality of entertainment had not been over-stated", with the "splendour of Victorian scenery beautifully portrayed throughout the film". Advertisements of the film’s screening depict a not to be missed cinematic experience, stirring excitement in the crowd that was met with much wonder and acclaim by the audience.
