Nickel Queen (1971)
User ReviewsReview this title
The film revolves around a nickel mine scam, set in Western Australia. There are a number of squabbles between various participants, each eager to lay their hands on the cash, and a number of very amusing scenes and characters. One of which, and one which has firmly lodged itself in my mind, is that of a topless girl diving into a swimming pool!
At the time of the movies screening I lived in Perth, Western Australia. I remember how startled I was to see places and people (several WA politicians appeared in the movie) with which I was personally familiar.
I hope that someone, somewhere has a copy of this delightful movie safely stored away, and that one day, it will find itself re-released for those who enjoy a light, but entertaining movie, and a fine example of Australian film making.
Terrific movie- best I've seen in a while. My dad pays a major role in this movie. His first scene is him drinking beer in a pub laughing. He is then shown again in the credits dancing with a pineapple on his head. I can't believe I am a daughter of a movie star. Incredible film-one I will see again and again. Must see! Can't recommend this movie enough Loved it!
