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.

Gallipoli is a 1981 Australian film directed by Peter Weir and starring Mel Gibson and Mark Lee, about several young men from rural Western Australia who enlist in the Australian Army during the First World War. They are sent to the peninsula of Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire, where they take part in the Gallipoli Campaign. During the course of the movie, the young men slowly lose their innocence about the purpose of war. The climax of the movie occurs on the Anzac battlefield at Gallipoli and depicts the futile attack at the Battle of the Nek on 7 August 1915.
Gallipoli provides a faithful portrayal of life in Australia in the 1910s—reminiscent of Weir's 1975 film Picnic at Hanging Rock set in 1900—and captures the ideals and character of the Australians who joined up to fight, as well as the conditions they endured on the battlefield. It does, however, modify events for dramatic purposes and contains a number of significant historical inaccuracies.
It followed the Australian New Wave war film Breaker Morant and preceded the 5-part TV series ANZACs, and The Lighthorsemen.
