the amorous adventures of God-knows-who

Visually on a big screen ELIZA FRASER is great fun and with a big amused audience it plays well....but...at 130 minutes it needed and still does 40 minutes chopped out of it. Read that cast! Every actor not on TV in the 70s in Oz, and a few rounded up in the UK each merrily wined dined dressed and "thesped" at each other for well paid weeks on end of production time.
