Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975) Poster

Rachel Roberts: Mrs. Appleyard



  • Ben Hussey : Well Ma'am, the strength of it is this. Three of your young ladies and uh - Miss McCraw are missing - on the rock.

    Mrs. Appleyard : What happened?

    Ben Hussey : Well now, Mrs. Appleyard, that's just the trouble. Nobody knows what happened.

  • Mrs. Appleyard : She hadn't been molested?

    Doc. McKenzie : No, no, nothing like that. I have examined her and it's quite intact.

  • Mrs. Appleyard : Good morning, girls.

    Girls : Good morning, Mrs. Appleyard.

    Mrs. Appleyard : Well young ladies, we are indeed fortunate in the weather for our picnic to Hanging Rock. I have instructed Mademoiselle that the day is likely to be warm, you may remove your gloves once the drag has passed through Wood End. We will partake a luncheon at the picnic grounds near the rock. Once again let me remind you the rock itself is extremely dangerous, you are therefore forbidden of any tomboy foolishness in the matter of exploration, even on the lowest slopes. I also wish to remind you, the vicinity is reknowned for its venomous snakes and poisonous ants of various species. It is, however, a geological marvel.

  • Mrs. Appleyard : [to Miss Lumley]  This tragedy is little more than a week old and already three, three mark you, sets of parents have written advising me that their daughters will not be here next term. Now the newspapers have something further to sensationalise about. Newspapers all over the world have headlined our morbid affair Miss Lumley. I mean, you realise that I suppose.
