This is one of the earliest feature films made in South Africa

A five-reel romance centred on a stolen diamond, an interracial friendship, and an anti-colonial uprising, The Rose of Rhodesia impressed contemporary reviewers with its daring realism, spectacular outdoor locations, and casting of African actors in prominent roles. Considered lost for most of the last century, the film may claim to be the first fictional treatment of Zimbabwe in cinema.

Now fully restored by the Nederlands Filmmuseum, The Rose of Rhodesia is being streamed together with a new musical soundtrack by acclaimed silent film composer Matti Bye. Accompanying the film is a special issue of Screening the Past, edited by Stephen Donovan and Vreni Hockenjos, in which specialists from a range of disciplines offer the first detailed analysis of this remarkable cinematic discovery.

Director: Harold M. Shaw
Stars: Edna Flugrath, M.A. Wetherell, Chief Kentani

This leads to Jenny the daughter having to find a job. She finally does…. as a maid. While there are a few hick-ups she adjusts well to her new life and also sparks starts developing between her and the son in the house. But she’s just a maid and they don’t know she’s a daughter of a Count, so they can’t do anything about it…. or maybe someone will tell…. 😉

Henry wanted a sport roadster – Betty wanted a sedan. Financially, the prospect suggested their compromising on a pushcart. But Betty had saved a few dollars toward some lovely headlights and, seized by a sudden inspiration, she invested them in an old flivver and rushed into Henry’s office with “Henry, we have a car!” Henry and the others rushed out to see the car and then poor Henry had to stand for a lot of kidding. However, it ran – occasionally. Henry brought the crowd home that night for a home-cooked dinner only to find that the car and Betty had run way out to the country, where the former had stopped for a good long rest. Many complications resulted but it all came out right in the end, and even Henry had to admit there was some good in his flivver.
