This Australian movie is set during the Australian Labor Party's "Whitlam Era" of Australian National Federal Government which was between 1972 and 1975. Gough Whitlam was Prime Minister of Australia during this period. Prior to principal photography, the so called "Whitlam Sequence" and all other references to Whitlam had to be removed from the picture's first act. Staunch Australian Labor Party advocate and co-writer of this film, Bob Ellis, said in Australian film magazine 'Cinema Papers' that "...this was so that the NSWFC [New South Wales Film Corporation] could pose as though it hadn't been appointed by a Labor Government and was not approving of Whitlam...Losing Whitlam wasn't all that serious, but losing references to him destroyed the structure of all the scenes in which those references occurred - and that may have been five or six. As a result, the first ten minutes of the film was wrecked...".
Judy Morris received top / first billing, Bill Hunter received second billing, Michael Preston received third billing, Jill Perryman received fourth billing, Ken Shorter received fifth billing, Michele Fawdon received sixth billing.
