Hey Guys.

 

I watched 'They're a Weird Mob' last night for the first time. 

 

Made in Sydney in 1966, a story of an Italian immigrant arriving in Australia.  Produced and directed by an Englishman, Michael Powell, who was required to bring the 'weird' Australian way of life to the worlds' cinemas.  Starring a very talented Italian actor, Walter Chiari, and a host of talented Aussies including Chips Rafferty, John Mellion and a beautiful Clare Dunne.

 

Using locations only (no studio sets), the city of Sydney is used as a character in its own right.  Filmed in colour too.

 

I was born in 1967, and it was a cool look at Sydney and Australian life from that time.

 

Thoroughly enjoyed.

 

Ant.

A great decade mate, just snuck in as a 69-er. :)

I seem to recall a documentary about the making of the movie where there was one set. I think it was the scene in the house with a view of the harbour. The corner of the lounge and the windows were all there was. When the documentary camera panned back you could see that there was bush all around and just the corner (with windows, carpet, furniture etc) and the film equipment.
