The film's Australian movie poster showed actor Jack Thompson
sitting intimately at a pub bar with two women, tag-lines stating that his character was "irresistible", has "a weakness for women" and is "a man who couldn't say NO!". Reportedly, in real life, Thompson had a real-life live-in relationship for about 15 years during the 1970s and 1980s with two women, the sisters Leona and Bunkie, which became a talking point in the Australian media and with the Australian public. Moreover, Thompson appeared as the first ever nude male centerfold in 1972 in 'Cleo' magazine. See more
