After success in literature, many of his works were adapted into successful films- The Spoilers became a stage play, then was adapted to the silver screen five times from 1914 to 1955.

Amongst his other works are: The Barrier (1908), The Silver Horde (1909), The Iron Trail (1913) and Flowing Gold (1922).
