User Reviews

Should be critiqued against others of its time and genre.
27 March 2003 | by jmassangSee all my reviews

It must be remembered that this was a low budget production with no known stars and that it was made in 1969 almost wholly at Artransa Studios in Sydney. It was a school holiday matinee and did not purport to be any more. To compare it with the hollywood childrens movies of the day is unhelpful and without merit.
