With Horsemen Aussie production drops its diapers. The pic, made in cooperation with the Department of Defense, is a three years’ dream of Charles Chauvel come true.

Pic portrays in sheer entertaining fashion the story [by Chauvel and E.V. Timms] of the Australian Light Horse, the famous regiment, in Palestine during World War I. Director Chauvel has with easy grace produced a telling action pic, yet carrying sufficient romance to fully satisfy the femme stubholders.

The acting is topnotch, with the honors going to Betty Bryant and ‘Chips’ Rafferty. The story is slight, telling the love of a French girl for an Aussie soldier. The action, however, is the highlight of the pic, with a corking charge sequence tempoing to a swift close. The camera work is high-class, editing deft, and the sets are tops.
