The Man From Snowy River

'There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around | That the colt from old Regret had got away...'

Based on Banjo Paterson's poem of the same name, The Man from Snowy River was a huge hit with audiences in Australia and very well-received overseas.

The film combined an Australian western with a stirring melodrama and period romance, set against a rugged mountain backdrop of wild horses and beautiful landscapes.

This collection includes clips, images and posters from the film; an extensive interview with the cast on The Mike Walsh Show in 1982; on-set reports of the making of the film; and an audio interview clip with producer Geoff Burrowes and director George Miller.
