The Story of the Kelly Gang 1906

the-story-of-the-kelly-gang

The first dramatic narrative to run over 60 minutes in length, but now only fragments remain, many of which are as badly decomposed as Ned Kelly. It also marks the beginning of the film industry in Australia but was banned in Benalla and Wangarratta, Australia, in 1907, and then again in Adelaide in 1911.

Kelly’s actual suit of armour was borrowed from the Victorian Museum and worn in the film.
