Pitcairn Island Today (1935)
The film is an interesting look at Pitcairn Island... however it inaccurately portrays the religious beliefs of the islanders.
The narrator refers to them as followers of "The Church of England" and that "Sunday is the holiest of days" to the islanders, but in the 1890's the islanders converted to the Seventh-day Adventist church which observes Saturday as the Sabbath.
Most Pitcairn residents have now given up Christianity altogether, but they still observe Saturday as a day of rest.
This is either a case of bad research by the filmmakers or a willful omission.
