The remains of Aeneas Gunn, and several other characters featured in the book and movie, are buried in the Elsey Cemetery. Jeannie Gunn is buried in Melbourne, but there is a memorial next to her husband's grave, which reads IN loving memory of the "Little Missus" JEANNIE GUNN Born. June 5th 1870. Died. June 9th 1961 See more »
"We of the Never Never" is a rare film. A near-epic made by and starring people from Australia. I can't really say whether no Hollywood people were involved, but it doesn't seem so.
Most Americans will have a some trouble understanding dialogue here and there. I have spent time in Oz and N.Z. and I didn't catch some of it. Just another reason why it's a true Australian production.
And it's quite upfront for 1982. The interaction/friction between Aboriginals and Whites is not most of the film, but a large part of it.
But to see it is to see something uniquely Australian, IMHO. Got to read the book!
