This movie was made a long time ago. I remember seeing it at a Saturday afternoon matinee. Those were the days when we could go to a theatre, pay two shillings (20 cents), sit in the stalls and watch.....first a latest newsreel, then a serial, then an interval break. go outside, buy a single icecream for one shilling (10 cents), or a double for 20 cents. The go back into our seats, watch a movie short, then a cartoon, then the movie....all for 20 cents.My! How times have changed. But, thankfully, the movie hasn't.
With that Australian icon, the late "Chips" Rafferty, once again in the staring role of an Australian movie, we knew we were going to see the REAL Australian outback. Perhaps most Aussie movies portray a lot of scenes of the outback.This movie is a winner for overseas people to see the real outback as it was years ago. I have given it 3 stars, not because it lacks in anything...it doesn't, but because it's in black and white.But the viewer should not hold that against the quality and story of the movie. I may be biased because I'm an Australian and Chips Rafferty has always been one of my favourite old time actors.Buy it. You will enjoy it.
