Inaccurate hagiography
25 April 2010 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

Don't waste your time on this one. It's been put together by partisan Menzies admirers. The fool spent the build up to world war II pretending he could usurp Churchill as PM and naively thinking Churchill would choose to defend the outpost of empire. Menzies, born in Australia, was a craven Anglophile who called Ol' Blighty "home". Yet according to this doco this is testimony to him being a "man of his time". Man out of time who would be dumped as an idiot on his return to Australia. Production values are high, and there is novelty appeal in use of actual amateur film shot by Menzies during his adventure, interspersed by dramatization of the events, which are again while convincing, are too sympathetic to Menzies to be taken seriously. This doco rewrites history and turns the truth into a travesty. Steer clear.
