Having read the comments, which are very favourable, it would be nice to see this on our own TV - as we have with other Australian series.
I can only imagine how good he was. I first saw Hugh live in London and was very impressed with the extent of his talent. It was quite some time later that I discovered he had started to make films. So I have collected what I can but I cannot get "Paperback Hero" or "Standing Room" - anybody know of any copies around ?
Every film that I have seen he always takes the acting credit. Being a stage actor he can bring so much more to the screen. So many 'small' touches that bring the performances to the fore. He is a real professional I really loved KATE & LEOPOLD. The theme music of the film is lovely and I would have loved to have heard Hugh Sing "Until" which won an Oscar. Pity about Meg's hair she too is a very talented lady but the hair spoilt the character.
