The Relief of Lucknow, in Film

This is a short silent film, (the link below is courtesy of The Tornos Studio’s Collection, as the original Colonial Film link no longer works),  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.”

Relief of Lucknow

The film, should by no means, be taken at face value. However, I leave it here to add a visual to the true story of the Siege of Lucknow.
