"As the winner of a silver cup given by G. W. Burnett, the film, Wimbledon Common, stands out as one of the leading productions of the Wimbledon Amateur Cine Club, states a late report from H. C. Bealby, publicity manager. The picture was made by C. W. Watkins, present secretary. Other Wimbledon films recently completed are: Nemesis, a 300 foot picture with a jungle theme, directed by R. Harrington Moore, with a cast which included Nancy Bealby, Betty Gregory, Mrs. E. Burnett, G. W. Burnett and Mrs. Bealby; The Man From London, an 800 foot film directed by J. Nunn and photographed by Mr. Watkins." (Moore 69)
