Tells the story of three men--Bluey, a tough two fisted drover (Taylor), Milo, a laconic dingo trapper (Rafferty), and Pete, an intellectual English "new chum" (Finch). Together they serve in North Africa, fighting against the forces of Rommel in what has now become one of Australia's greatest wartime legends--The Rats of Tobruk. Written by

The men look at a picture (off-screen) of a naked woman in the barber shop, calling her Chloe. This is a reference to a well-known painting kept in Young and Jackson's Hotel in Melbourne. See more »
When questioned by an officer, the men say that they are from the 2/2nd battalion. This battalion was part of the 16th Brigade of the 6th Division. The battalion was not part of the 9th Division which served in Tobruk during the siege. See more »
I love this movie mainly because it tells the story of brave soldiers fighting for their country. Chips Rafferty, Grant Taylor and Peter Finch play three Australian cattle drovers. When the war starts they all join up. It shows that soldiers are really ordinary people until a war starts and once they join up they become heroes. I always laugh at George Wallace as he plays the comic relief. Its definitely worth seeing i managed to track down what I am convinced is the only copy left in existence. If you ever see a copy buy it.
