Trivia

"True History of the Kelly Gang" is the sixteenth on screen depiction of the Kelly Outbreak. The outbreak has previously been depicted in nine feature films (plus a unfinished film in 1947), two short films, two teleplays, and a miniseries. See more »

Goofs

The film depicts Kelly's hanging as being performed by pushing him off a catwalk. In real life, hangings in Kelly's time were performed by having the prisoner stand on a trapdoor, which would then be opened by a release leaver, sending the prisoner falling until they reached the end of the rope.

Second review. Peter Carey novels are weird
14 January 2020 | by bobwarn-938-55867See all my reviews

Carey is known for their quirkiness. But I have still generally liked them. Bliss was a hoot, and Oscar and Lucinda 'hard work' but OK. I have not read the Ned Kelly book, but would think it's also 'off the wall'. Unfortunately I do not think that this approach works for historical novels about iconic national 'heroes', except to puncture popular viewpoints, which with Ned in a ballgown I guess this is intended to do. Certainly Ned the political Cass warrior, and especially his Irish mother's red-hot hatred of all things British, comes through line an express train.
