Film title 'Empress of India'?

I see IMDB (and Wikipedia) are claiming "Empress of India" as the title for this film in Australia. But to my knowledge it was always known there as "North West Frontier".

Was "Empress of India" ever a valid title for this film in Australia (or anywhere else for that matter)?


Apart from the claims made by IMDb, I have no idea whether this film was known as "Empress of India" in Australia...though it's also claimed that this was the movie's working title while it was being filmed. IMDb also states that the film's "video box title" in Australia is "North-West Frontier". Presumably there are newspaper records from when the movie debuted in Australia that would provide the answer.
