The Relief of Lucknow, in Film




This is a short silent film, courtesy of Colonial Film, produced by the Edison Company, in 1912, about the Relief of Lucknow. The film was first shown in 1912 and four veterans of the siege were present at the viewing. The accompanying article from the Penny Illustrated Paper notes that the veterans were "roused by the correctness of the details.."
