What about some classic Chips Rafferty,

 

  1. Mutiny On the Bounty
  2. Bush Christmas
  3. The Overlanders
  4. The Sundowners
  5. Smiley
  6. Wake In Fright

to name a few off the top of my head.

 

Mutiny On the Bounty was Errol Flynn's debut film. Was before its time imho. I was a huge Smiley fan. Saw most of the series  at boarding school. Not sure we can lay claim to Smiley..  likely UK  produced. Same as several of the above.

Wake in Fright (1971) all the waaaay

I'd like to think what's depicted is Aus of the past, but it's only superficially true. So viscerally portrayed - the topography of Australian subconscious mind. Myself included.

We have all forgotten perhaps Australia's finest cult mystery/thriller.. Patrick (1978).

Yes it was low budget with a B cast I dont deny that.  Someone acknowledged its originality with an upmarket remake in 2013 with Charles Dance and Rachel Griffiths.

      Hi Everyone
      What is your favourite western movie? (for those who like westerns of course)
      My favourite is "The Magnificent Seven" but I also like the three iconic Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns starring Clint Eastwood......no titles needed here.......lol
      In my opinion the themes to all these movies are timeless......Elmer Bernstein and Ennio Morricone respectively.

      Found this yesterday amongst SBS On Demand's movies. Set in 1941 during the siege of, another true (?) story about amazing people with huge hearts doing things we would find totally inconcevable. Loved it, highly recommended. 
      ps If I've placed this wrongly moderators, please amend.
