Heritage 1935
An epic scale narrative of Australian history from master filmmaker Charles Chauvel, Heritage spans the earliest days of white settlement in 1788 across some fifty years to the 1930s.
James Morrison (Franklyn Bennett), a dashing and ambitious young settler in the new colony at Sydney Cove, woos Biddy O’Shea (Peggy Maquire), a fiery young Irish girl, when she arrives in Sydney on 'the wife ship’, but fate intervenes and they both marry other people. A few years later, Morrison and his team of bullock drivers intervene to stop a band of Aborigines attacking a farmhouse. Biddy, mortally wounded by a spear, asks him to care for her baby. Morrison and his wife Jane (Margot Rhys) raise the boy, Frank Parry, as their own. Several generations later, Biddy’s great granddaughter and namesake marries the great grandson of James Morrison, now a member of the Federal Parliament.
