[From: Melbourne Truth, 7 September 1918, p. 6.]
Nothing like building up the blood lust for the final months of the war. This movie was released in Australia during September 1918. While claimed to create a furore all over the country, the movie was quietly dropped from the scene after the Armistice was declared with nothing more heard of it. The time had come to heal and movies like this were no longer seen to be appropriate.
