Mitchell & Kenyon Away from the Crowd
14 October 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Between 1899 and 1901, a Chinese secret society called Yihetuan (translated as "Militia United United in Harmony" and called "Boxers" by foreigners, since martial arts clubs were a source of members) rose up against the Qing dynasty, who eventually tried to ride the whirlwind and support them. They were put down severely by the foreigners, since they opposed foreigners, Christianity and foreign gunboats shelling the Chinese. This movie shows an example of the reprisals, using the same camera trick used five years earlier in THE EXECUTION OF MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS.

There's nothing surprising in any of that. What is surprising is that this movie was produced by Sagar Mitchell and James Kenyon, the Manchester film company that is best known for going around town and shooting the crowds at local events. Apparently they did a few studio pieces in addition to their better-remembered work.
