This film's scriptwriter, actor Max Cullen
has said of this film: "Australian ex-diggers were still at war with the 'yanks' in 1949, the year 'Rate of Exchange' is set in. The North Star Hotel was the location for one of their least known and insignificant battles. This film recreates that battle, sip by sip. Tall stories were told, songs murdered, small amounts of money changed hands and a woman actually appeared in the bar! Those who can remember do, the rest is history. Our film is a toast to Australia . . . your shout!". See more
