Description

A review of the film The Viking on page 14 of the Adelaide newspaper ‘The Advertiser’ on October 17, 1929. The film was about Lief Eriksson, or Leif the Lucky, the leader of possibly the first group of Europeans to reach North America. The review is positive, describing the film as ‘a remarkable screen achievement’, featuring dragon ships and Viking dress and armour. The reviewer also notes that Lief had a saga written about him, although the saga (story) that provides the most information about Lief is the saga about his father, Saga of Erik the Red’s.
