SKU: 03440-M194

Widely loved and hugely profitable, George Miller's The Man from Snowy River drew on the deftness of Australian television drama to help reorient Australian filmmaking towards a popular and international audience. Yet it was also too gauche for cinephiles and too glossy a portrait of Australia for progressive audiences. Dan Golding examines the contradiction of popular appeal and critical discomfort at the heart of this local classic – along with the processes of adaptation, production and exhibition that culminated in its release on screen.
