Anthology of Behind-the-Scenes Anecdotes from a Century of Aussie Cinema

Cinema from the Land Down Under laid bare in an anthology of little-known behind the scenes anecdotes from a century of movie-making.

Meticulously researched former SAR Research Fellow at the National Film and Sound Archive Robert Cettl, Australian Film Tales brings to e-book the exciting, mysterious, offbeat and humourous world of Aussie cinema history in the time-honoured form of the movie anecdote. Arranged in themed chapters, this ebook offers readers both new to, or familiar with, Australian cinema an informative, entertaining and insightful summation of a national film industry.

From the drunken brawl over a woman that scarred Mel Gibson's face in time to be noticed by the casting director of Mad Max, to the protests by Actor's Equity over Hollywood star Meryl Streep playing Aussie icon Lindy Chamberlain through to the contemporary uproar of Aussie film industry tax breaks being exploited by American superhero movie productions:

"Australian Film Tales" brings to e-book an ideal companion for the home international theatre enthusiast.
