Trivia

After writing the screenplay for this film, Ian Jones went on to co-write (with wife, Bronwyn Binns, who also served as an assistant editor on this film) the four part mini-series The Last Outlaw (1980), which is also about the life of Ned Kelly. Jones has also developed a reputation as Australia's foremost expert on the Kelly story, penning and editing four books on the outlaw: "The Friendship That Destroyed Ned Kelly" (1992); "Ned Kelly: A Short Life" (1995); "Ned The Exhibition" (2001); and "Ned Kelly: The Last Stand" (2003).

Nice to look at, not so nice to listen too
6 December 2000 | by JohnSealSee all my reviews

This potted history of the infamous Australian outlaw benefits tremendously from Gerry Fisher's frequently ravishing photography but is ultimately doomed by its paint by numbers screenplay and the star turn by Mick Jagger (who reportedly dismissed the film as a "load of s**t"). Frankly, a bearded Jagger speaking in a weak brogue reminded me more of Warwick Davis in the Leprechaun series than it did of a legendary Robin Hood style badman. Shel Silverstein's faux-folk songs haven't aged well either.
