This version of Silks and saddles has been assembled from the original 1921 nitrate negative. The visual quality of some scenes has been affected by chemical decomposition and a few sequences are missing which may cause discontinuity in places. Silks and saddles is a romantic melodrama centred around Roberta, the daughter of a stud farm owner and her efforts to train her prized race horse. She has to deal with intrigue and rival suitors

[Reel Australia study package : imported genres]( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

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
