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
