By the late teens Hollywood was the dominant economic and cultural force in the international film industry. The four features in this package at most have a touch of local colour (most notably George Wallace's comic persona in His Royal Highness) but basically they are not marked by Australian themes and settings. The Cheaters (1929) is a sophisticated society melodrama; Painted Daughters (1925) is a romantic melodrama in a vaudeville setting; Silks and Saddles (1921) is a romantic melodrama set in the world of horse-racing; His Royal Highness (1932) is a comic fantasy or burlesque operetta

Melbourne today. 1931( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Melbourne Today was the first of Frank Thring's Efftee documentaries and one of three travelogues he made (the others being about Ballarat and Sydney). It was probably the first talkie documentary made about Melbourne and is a beautifully photographed promotion for the city. The cinematographer was Arthur Higgins, whose older brother Ernest had filmed the first feature-length documentary of Melbourne, Marvellous Melbourne: Queen City of the South (c1910), for Cozens Spencer 20 years earlier. Like Marvellous Melbourne, Melbourne Today surveys the city's architecture and captures its wide tree-lined streets and large parks. Higgins's camera often tracks a path along riverbeds, walking tracks and roads, creating a gentle rhythm to match the pace of Norman Campbell's 'descriptive talk' (written by Frank Thring). The sweeping panoramas of the city are accompanied by a classical orchestral score"--Curator Poppy De Souza, Screen Australia website
