This is a classic Australian kid's movie from the 1950s. It depicts a freedom unknown to children today, in a bucolic setting that reminds us of a simpler, more integrated "time gone by", which I suspect was rater "old", even for the time in which it was made. It's lack of political correctness is refreshing. This is a fun indulgence and essential viewing for anyone with an interest in vintage Australian films or movies made for children. The DVD I received is region 4, so will only play in region-free DVD players or those set on region 4.
