Nino Culotta is an Italian immigrant who arrived in Australia with the promise of a job as a journalist on his cousin's magazine, only to find that when he gets there the magazine's folded, the cousins done a runner & the money his cousin sent for the fare was borrowed from the daughter of the boss of a local construction firm. So Nino tries to get a job & finishes up ... laying bricks. Nino works hard & makes friends with lots of locals, Nino & Kay argue a lot, Nino & Kay fall in love ... Kay takes Nino to meet 'Daddy' but daddy hates journalists, immigrants and bricklayers (he's now BOSS of a construction firm). Nino starts to win him over with his charm & determination to marry Kay.

I think I spotted author John O'Grady in the opening sequence where the voiceover bloke is introducing us to Australia and its customs.
Two blokes are in a pub having a beer. The voiceover bloke tells us, "These are called schooners," referring to the size of the beer glasses. Then the two blokes take a pull of their schooners. The bloke on the right looks just like O'Grady, whose photo appeared in his autobiography There Was a Kid 10 years later.
