Trivia

Alida Chelli was the girlfriend of leading man Walter Chiari and almost didn't get the part because she was thought to be too glamorous and might have upstaged female lead Claire Dunne. See more »

Keith Loone - My Father
31 May 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

My late Father filmed this very funny movie and as a boy we heard many stories about the fun times both cast and crew had together whilst filming.

If any one out there knows more stories about Keith Bryan Loone, please feel free to email me. Dad died in 1988 and would love to hear more stories about himand his work. Dad used to work for Ajax films in Balmain then from memory went freelance and filmed quite a few movies over the years working with Australia's top directors, actors, writers and crew. They're weird mob is one of the original funny movies Australia produced with an international cast complete with local actors who later in life also filled our screens in memorable movies. I would like to hear more what people think of this classic.
