Great JOK music.

Shout- The story of Johnny O'Keefe. This is a 2 DVD set that runs for 200 minutes including extras, and digitally remastered for Dolby 5.1. Originally shown on TV by the Seven Network back in 1985. I recently purchased (2007) the DVD set and have watched it many times. Terry Serio's portrayal of Johnny O'Keefe is excellent and so to is John McTiernan as Lee Gordon. Of course no movie can do justice to O'Keefe, but it covers the main events in his show biz life, and yes there are glitches and omissions. Most of his hits are there in full and I thought well presented and mimed by Terry Serio. O'Keefe almost single handedly kick started rock and roll in this country, fighting radio stations who weren't interested in Australian talent. I would recommend this to anyone interested in early Australian Rock and Roll.
