Back to God's Country: The Films of Nell Shipman

Back to God's Country: The Films of Nell Shipman features two extraordinary films starring early independent producer, writer, conservationist and star Nell Shipman were shot on location in the frozen wilds of Canada and the arid Mojave Desert. Shipman, a fearless free spirit on and off screen, was ably supported by brilliant cameraman Joseph B. Walker, who went on to shoot many of Frank Capra's classic films.

In Back to God's Country Shipman is a beautiful young wife trapped on an ice-bound ship. The captain, a murderous fugitive, will stop at nothing to have his way with Nell. With only the help of a ferocious dog named Wapi, she must stave off his advances and escape with her severely wounded husband to safety.

Something New is a thrilling and hilarious Western where the hero comes to the rescue of the kidnapped girl in a 1920 Maxwell sedan! Chased by bandits on horseback across rocky terrain, Shipman, boyfriend/co-star Van Tuyle and "Laddie" (her pet collie) survive some of the most amazing (and real) stunts ever attempted in a roadster. Something New is an offbeat and wonderful addition to film history.
