Dir. Phillip Noyce
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Drama

Topics: Period 1940s, Period 1950s, Showbiz.


Aroview: Picture perfect if conservative account of the newsreel professionals who became obsolete by the advent of television in the late 1950s. The episodic structure and nostalgIc glow detract from dramatic tension, but it remains a benchmark of sophistication in Australian cinema. Bill Hunter leads as the middle-aged cameraman, ahead of Wendy Hughes, Chris Haywood, Bryan Brown, Tony Barry.
