This is a producer's anecdote in response to viewer's comment
It was actually my XJ6 Jaguar that was blown up in Early Frost (1982), not Terry's. But yes, Terry was a local Blacktown boy. The reason The late Guy Doleman was cast was because twenty years earlier he had been my mentor when I was a young actor. I didn't do him any favours unfortunately. Terry was not the original director, so as writer was not responsible for what went wrong. The original director was removed, and Geoff Brown (co-producer) and I did what we could to fix the picture. It is to this day the only Australian film to have no director's credit See David Stratton's book The Great Avacado Plantation for more detail.
