On our selection( Visual )

5 editions published between 1932 and 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Hall (his first feature) and based on the long running stage hit by Bert Bailey and Edmund Duggan, derived in turn from the stories by Steele Rudd
The squatter's daughter( Visual )

5 editions published between 1933 and 2003 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.]
Palace of dreams( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An exploration of Sydney's fabulous State Theatre - one of the few remaining true picture palaces in the world and one of the greatest and most beautiful examples of that special architectural art form. This film echoes the sights and sounds of the past, as the cameras search out the treasures and wonders of the State Theatre, now fully restored to its original splendour

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
Orphan of the wilderness : [trailer]( Visual )

2 editions published in 1936 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trailer for the Cinesound feature film ORPHAN OF THE WILDERNESS, directed by Ken G. Hall
Strike me lucky( Visual )

2 editions published between 1934 and 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This was an attempt to both broaden the appeal and tone down the blue humour of vaudeville and radio comedian Roy Rene, 'the leering Jewish clown who parodied and outraged middle class conventions', to quote Pike and Cooper. Sometimes laboured stage routines are mixed with attempts at more obviously cinematic invention. The story involves Mo's friendship with a small girl who has run away from her wealthy family, a gang of would-be kidnappers, a tribe of wild Aboriginals and a lost gold mine
Australia marches with Britain : highlights of the national war effort( Visual )

2 editions published between 1941 and 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film extols the over-producing wheat, meat, dairy, timber, steel, and Merino wool industries of Australia as assets to the Allied war effort. Describes the production of weapons and military supplies in Australian plants. "Dedicated to maintaining a life-line to Britain, Australia aids in the production of supplies and munitions for export; 'Aussie' troops are shown training and embarking for the front lines."--War Films Bulletin of the Extension Division, Indiana University, February, 1943
Mr. Chedworth steps out( Visual )

2 editions published in 1939 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comedy-drama on the theme of the little man who is put upon by his family and society. He loses his job as a clerk only to stumble upon a bag of money while working as a caretaker, a discovery which reverses his fortunes. This is probably the best of the Cinesound features with some sharp social observation. Certainly it is the most subtle, gaining greatly from Kellaway's presence in the lead role for which he returned briefly from Hollywood
Grandad Rudd( Visual )

2 editions published in 1935 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first of the three Cinesound spin-offs from On Our Selection began a gradual modification of the original Dad and Dave humour. The Rudds are transformed into prosperous farmers. A melodramatic sub-plot involving the Rudd's sophisticated grand-daughter and a suave young bigamist is combined with slapstick humour including a bizarre counting cricket match, a runaway tractor and a drunken Grandad breaking up a Band of Hope meeting. The exteriors were shot at Camden
