On our selection ( Visual )

The first 'Dad and Dave' talkie, and the start of an eight-year period of continuous production at the Sydney studio of Cinesound. The film was directed by Ken G.

The squatter's daughter ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1933 and 1989 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[This melodrama within a celebratory, nationalistic framework is centred on Australia's upper class, the squattocracy. Social harmony is disturbed by the rivalry between adjoining sheep stations, one managed by a strong-willed woman, the other by a weak-willed schemer. Melodramatic revelation and incident including a realistically staged bushfire is leavened by comic interludes involving two disaster-prone shearers. A mysterious stranger ultimately domesticates the heroine and, in effect, restores the status quo.]
Dad and Dave come to town ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1938 and 2000 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The third of Cinesound's four Dad and Dave comedies. This version, the longest now surviving, was reconstructed from original Australian and British release prints. The Rudd family are taken from their usual rural haunts to the city, when Dad unexpectedly inherits a woman's fashion emporium. A young Peter Finch co-stars as a gangling youth in love with Dad's daughter
The silence of Dean Maitland ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1934 and 1989 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A clergyman who denies responsibility for the pregnancy of his lover and the death of her father remains silent for twenty years while his best friend languishes in prison after being wrongly convicted for the clergyman's crime. This melodrama had been filmed first by Raymond Longford in 1914. By updating the earlier success Hall's intention was to make a feature that would work with both British and Australian audiences

Strike me lucky ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1934 and 1989 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[Mo teams up with a little runaway girl who is being pursued by kidnappers. Rene's risque humour and pathos did not adequately transfer to the screen, and despite a ballet of Busby Berkeley proportions the film was a commercial failure.]
