I was there as this was being made.
13 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

I was 11 and living in a small town called Gayndah, in Queensland, when this film was being made. I remember Sir Robert Helpmann, and an American actor with dark hair and a wandering eye.

I also remember a scene in front of the Burnett Hotel in Gayndah, in which a horse was tranquilized so that it would collapse.
