A must see
2 October 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a classic Oz film made by the director who made Errol Flynn's first film(In the Wake of the Bounty"). I first saw this film as a child and was enthralled by it. Some of the scripting is a bit on the mawkish side and, as in any war film, there is a bit of flag waving (otherwise why make it?)but the action scenes are very well done.Given American insularity their lack of familiarity with the story shouldn't intrude on their enjoyment of it. Well written it recounts (fictional) events leading up to the Aust. Light Horse charge at Beersheba in World War 1. It shows well the dry, laconic Australian bushman's sense of humour and the capacity for friendship which used to be such a great Australian characteristic. Well made and an important film it still holds up well after 64 years.
