Western

This 1920 silent film was made by Kenneth Brampton, who wrote, produced, directed and starred in it. The story concerns a real life bushranger (outlaw) named Captain Starlight, who became a national hero (like Ned Kelly). It is based on a classic Australian novel by Rolf Boldrewood (the pen name of Thomas Browne). This was the third film of the novel. The first, directed by Charles McMahon, was an early feature film made shortly after "The Story of the Kely Gang". The second was made in 1911.

A yodeling Bill Hickok, assisted by Calamity Jane, is after a foreign agent and his guerrilla band.
