This film should be re-released, 10 November 2004
Author: talbystargazer

With the right marketing this film could be re-released in Australia and France, and possibly elsewhere. It's a solid entry into the "adventure" genre, with slightly wooden but totally endearing performances by the cast.

Chips Rafferty is quite charming in a blue-collar no-nonsense sort of a way, and it's extraordinary to see how the Australian film persona has evolved since then.

Some of the imagery of Papua and New Guinea is breathtaking, and would be utterly impossible to film now in light of security problems there now.

Come on Village Roadshow, do some forward-thinking PR and distribute this gem!!!!
