Brand: AUSTRALIAN PRESS SHEETS BOX
Original Country of Origin Australian Press sheet, single page, printed one side only, fine - very fine condition.
 
Australian Press sheets provide important historical information on movies, particularly for those that were filmed in Australia. They often comprised a single page sometimes printed on both sides, sometimes not and occasionally four or more pages. They would generally include a synopsis of the film and cast details plus information about posters and newspaper advertising. They have been neglected over the years and were usually thrown away after use but it would be good to see an historical archive of all Australian press sheets.

Breaker Morant (1980)

Directed by Bruce Beresford.

With Edward Woodward, Jack Thompson, John Waters, Bryan Brown, Lewis Fitz-Gerald, Bud Tingwell, Ray Meagher, Rod Mullinar

Breaker Morant is a 1980 Australian film about the court martial of Breaker Morant, directed by Bruce Beresford and starring British actor Edward Woodward as Harry "Breaker" Morant and Jack Thompson as his attorney. The all-Australian supporting cast features Bryan Brown and Lewis Fitz-Gerald.
Beresford co-wrote the screenplay from the 1978 play Breaker Morant: A Play in Two Acts by Kenneth G. Ross.
Breaker Morant preceded other Australian New Wave war films such as Gallipoli, The Lighthorsemen, and the five-part TV series ANZACS. Recurring themes of these films include the Australian identity, such as mateship and larrikinism, the loss of innocence in war, and also the continued coming of age of the Australian nation and its soldiers.
The film was a top performer at the 1980 Australian Film Institute awards, with ten wins, including: Best Film, Best Direction, Leading Actor, Supporting Actor, Screenplay, Art Direction, Cinematography, and Editing. It was also nominated for the 1980 Academy Award for the Best Writing.
