Film Notes

This film is typical of the early Kinemacolor subjects in its painterly composition and assertion of the timeless qualities inherent in nature. The colour in this damaged print is of variable quality, but improves as the film progresses, and the final scene with two lovers has much the same magical quality as Lumière Autochrome colour photographs (which producer Charles Urban featured alongside his Kinemacolor films for some of the first demonstrations of the process).
