Stork
STORK is the off-beat comedy that swept the 1971 AFI Awards winning Best Film, Best Actor and Best Director.

STORK is adapted from the play "The Coming Of Stork" by the young David Williamson, and directed by the pioneering Tim Burstall.
The 'six foot deranged revolutionary', STORK (Bruce Spence) is a long, tall, gangly, footy mad, beer swilling Aussie bloke hell bent on losing his virginity. Then he's seduced by Anna (Jacki Weaver), the free-spirited "flower child" already dating his flatmates Tony and Clyde. But when Anna announces she's pregnant, and Tony agrees to marry her, STORK is enraged that she'd cop out and go establishment. Now he's out to create mayhem at the wedding and go on the honeymoon!

Alvin Purple
Australia's original naughty boy is back! Here is ALVIN PURPLE back to back (or front to front) in the two hilarious sex romps that shook the nation's funny bone in the permissive 1970s. Naive young Alvin finds that no matter how hard he resists them, beautiful women can't keep their hands off him, and what's a healthy young Aussie bloke going to do but oblige. From accepting the comfort of his teacher's wife, to mutual nude body-painting and demonstrating to a customer how to get the most out of a waterbed, ALVIN PURPLE is the young man everybody loves.

Alvin Purple Rides Again
It's double trouble when Oz's most irresistible chick magnet discovers he has much more to contend with than women when he meets his spitting image, visiting American gangster, "Balls McGee"!

Petersen
The raunchy box office smash that rocketed JACK THOMPSON to movie stardom.

In the first full-length screenplay by Australia's most successful living playwright David Williamson, Thompson is Jock Petersen, a married electrician and ex-footballer who sees himself as something better. Enrolling in an Arts course at University he throws himself headlong into his new life including a passionate affair with Trish (Wendy Hughes), the wife of his English professor (Arthur Dignam). As he grows apart from his wife (Jacki Weaver), Petersen's life begins to slowly unravel.

End Play
Russell Braddon's bestseller becomes a gripping, psychological movie thriller with a serial killer, in a small coastal community, preying on young and attractive female hitchhikers!

Suspicion falls on paraplegic Robert Gifford (George Mallaby) and his brother Mark (John Waters). Both men remain fiercely protective of the other but when the police begin to close in, tensions mount and it is clear that one brother is the murderer. But which one is it? And who is protecting whom?

Eliza Fraser
With an original screenplay by David Williamson here is the shocking, bawdy, real life colonial adventure of a woman way ahead of her time!

English sea Captain James Fraser (Noel Ferrier) and his vivacious young wife Eliza (Susannah York) are shipwrecked on the Great Barrier Reef off the Queensland coast in 1837 to live amongst the local aboriginals whilst watching their mutinous crew turn into savages. By the time help arrives, Eliza has been widowed and on her return to Sydney Town she outrages society by earning her living re-enacting her adventures at carnivals and country fairs.

High Rolling
It's Australia's original buddy movie when two lovable larrikins hit the road to the Gold Coast in a hot Corvette all to the tune of a hit Sherbet soundtrack!

Carnival roustabouts, American Texas (Joseph Bottoms) and Aussie Alby (Grigor Taylor), hitchhiking to Surfer's Paradise, are picked up by Arnold (John Clayton). When Arnold puts the hard word on Alby, the boys beat him up and steal his car and wallet. After picking up teenager Lynn (Judy Davis) they discover the Corvette is filled with drugs and the wallet is full of money. They're now on the run from the mob and a mobster intent on revenge.

Last of the Knucklemen, The
A tough country breeds tough men and they don't come much tougher than the knucklemen!

In an outback mining site foreman 'Tarzan' (Gerard Kennedy) is forced to maintain order when necessary by use of his very formidable fists. Here, where boredom for these men is only relieved by a trip to the pub and visits to the local brothel, tempers often get to boiling point. Particularly for 'Pansy' (Mike Preston), a big-mouthed miner who is a continual irritant to all on site. Now 'Pansy' has gone one step too far and 'Tarzan' has to take him down. To the delight of the town the fists are about to start flying as the last of the knucklemen go head to head in a bare-knuckle fight to the finish.
