A tale of romance, jealousy, temptation and redemption!

With the help of charming, rhyming vernacular intertitles we follow the story of Bill ‘The Kid’, a larrikin (Australian term meaning “uncultivated, rowdy but good-hearted person”) who cleans up his act when the beautiful Doreen enters his life. The much-loved Australian film star Lottie Lyell plays Doreen, and also holds screenplay, art direction, editing and production assistant credits.
The film was a huge box office hit with audiences at the time, prized for its vivid characterisation, heartfelt and sympathetic storytelling, and the humour and realism with which it portrays the working-class setting. We are honoured to present the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia’s new, 100th-anniversary restoration, just after its world premiere at a gala outdoor screening in Sydney this February.
