Australian Films

Well, small world, just had some Australian guests staying at and of course spoke to them about ReelStreets, locations and films in general, including Rank's foray into the southern hemisphere.

Who out there remembers Chips Rafferty in the Overlanders, and also Eureka Stockade? Other Aussie classics include Ned Kelly, Picnic at Hanging Rock and Neville Shute's Town Like Alice.

The lady guest's mother in law was Helen Grieve who took the part of Helen Parsons in the Overlanders which was shot in and around Derby and Alice Springs in Australia. Helen Grieve also appeared in Bush Christmas.

Maybe we'll have to start ReelStreets(Australia).
