Up for sale is a BRAND NEW ‘WHEN THE KELLYS RODE’ 1934 MOVIE POSTER FULL COLOUR REPRODUCTION PRINT WITH FREE AUSTRALIA WIDE POSTAGE.
‘When The Kellys Rode’ was the third Kelly film made by Harry Southwell, a footloose, independent filmmaker of the 1920s and 30s. The first, ‘The True Story Of The Kelly Gang’, was made in Victoria in 1920. The second, on cameraman Tas Higgins’ advice, was made again from scratch in 1923. It was shot, beautifully, by Higgins in the Burragorang and Kangaroo Valleys in New South Wales, and called ‘When The Kellys Were Out’. The third, with the same cameraman but this time a different actor for Kelly, was a sound film. ‘When The Kellys Rode’ was made in the New South Wales Megalong Valley and nearby in 1934. All these movies ran into trouble with censorship, the second despite its final title: ‘And such is the inevitable fate of all those who rebel against the righteous and mighty forces of law and order.’ ‘When The Kellys Rode’ was banned in New South Wales with the result that bushranging films were not favoured by backers for sometime. The Chief Secretary said he felt enough had been heard about bushrangers. The film was made in 1934. In 1934, Dollfuss was assassinated and Hitler was in power. Einstein had just taken up a professorship at Princeton, Benjamin Britten published his fourth major work, Shirley Temple won a Special Academy Award, and Qantas instituted the England-Australia airmail service. It seems a very modern time in which to worry about robbery under arms. The story of overt film censorship in Australia is studded with lunatic episodes.
