Hor those that are interested a clip from the first ever feature film.

Ed - it was Mick Jagger's attempt to be an actor.  The story was a good one but the acting was atrocious.  The last stand scene is so badly done that it is more than hysterical.  it wass supposed to show the futility he faced and it was more of a comedy.  I think it is still available on Net Flicks.  Watch it for the story not the acting!  Mick should stick to singing!

The Mick Jagger version was the third Ned Kelly movie and more than half a century after the original. I can't comment on it as the intent of the film was an attempt to make a national hero a joke and I was part of the boycott.

It was shot in 1902 but not shown internationally to 1906.

Only parts of it exists now. It is interesting for another reason the film was shot on a film made by a Coburg Vic chemist named Kodak who later on sold the process to the American Eastman corp.
