Ahh...the gum trees, the wide open (blue or is that gray) skies, the log cabins, the Aussie accents, the colonial hats, the...
This is Australian cinematography; 1950 style.
It was well done. This one needed to be digitized. (So many of the original Aussie movies have been destroyed.) Of course the acting is one dimensional, of course the guns sound like cap guns, of course the horses running sound like chop sticks on a table. But this is priceless !. There is something unique that makes you think "I'm glad Hollywood didn't do this". Seriously though, every red blooded Aussie will thoroughly enjoy this for what it is; a 1950 movie about "our" Ned. Sure; Heath Ledger's movie is slicker & more polished. But this is from a different Australia.
Its worth a look again because this is part of us. It is what has partly made us.
