The Sick Stockrider

The Sick Stockrider (W. J. Lincoln, 1913) Lincoln-Cass Films, from the poem by Adam Lindsay Gordon, dp Maurice Bertel; George Bryant (the stockrider) Godfrey Cass (his mate) Roy Redgrave, Tom Cannam; 1200 ft

Lincoln-Cass Films was in existence only August-October 1913, falling victim to the Australasian Films combine.

According to Pike & Cooper (40-41) this is the earliest film to survive 'virtually complete': NFSA's copy runs for 14 min. The film intersperses cards with stanzas of Gordon's poem and dramatic flashbacks, following the order of the poem.
