5. Amazing movie

There are many memorable scenes in that old movie which I won't spoil. Sobering to see Fred Astaire in serious acting and Tony Perkins before he was typecast as Mother.

I had always wondered: using horse-drawn carriages in the beginning: was that typical Australia in 1960's or is that part of the "running out of resources" theme?

Outside of that drama: Ava Gardner said something dismissive about Australia which won her scorn.
