Trivia

The New Year's Eve concert scenes were actually filmed at The Seymour Centre (a theatre adjacent to The University of Sydney in Camperdown), not at the Sydney Opera House. Filming took three days, and the concert crowd were groups of school kids from various Sydney schools. The scene where Angus is kissing the usherette were filmed later, in one of the foyers at the Sydney Opera House. See more »

Awesome Australian musical!
17 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Wonderful new wave camp classic,i normally don't really like musicals,but when i saw this back in the eighties i loved it. beautiful sexy Jo Kennedy plays an aspiring singer in Australia. her little cousin Angus,is her agent.campy fun movie with lots of great new wave musical numbers.pokes fun at the MGM musicals from the 40s and 50s.this was a little known,under-appreciated effort from down under. and seldom shown on TV.i don't think its out on DVD yet.but its a great movie.with colorful zany characters,its a cult film.Australia's greatest import since mad max.a must see for everyone even if your not into musicals like me.more then likely you will enjoy.10 out of 10.
