Trivia

Producer Phillip Avalon and his partners distributed this film themselves in Australia, four-walling the picture and putting it into independent cinemas. Avalon even road-showed it himself on 16mm along Australia's East Coast. The film in Australia also ran in a successful drive-ins double-bill with the David Essex rock-musical That'll Be the Day (1973). See more »

John Jarratt
12 December 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The star of the film was John Jarratt, who freaked a lot of people out a few years ago as Mick Taylor, the psychopathic killer in "Wolf Creek", as well as playing the Sergeant in "Australia".

"Summer City" was one of the films made in the 1970s as Australia tried to get back to rebuilding a film industry that collapsed before World War II as the cinema chains found it cheaper to import films than to pay for local films to be made. Up until the late 1960s Australian Governments had no real interest in films, more important things had to be done. We did not get television until 1956 and if Melbourne had not held the Olympics in that year it probably would have been later.
