Actors Mel Gibson and David Argue and director Peter Weir talk with TV host Mike Walsh about the film 'Gallipoli' (1981).
Gibson and Argue discuss playing characters that might seem innocent or naive to 1981 audiences and Gibson describes the physical challenges of his role.
'Gallipoli' was an immediate success in Australia and attracted international acclaim when it was released in 1981. The film showed Gibson’s dramatic range as an actor just months before 'Mad Max 2' (AKA 'The Road Warrior') cemented his worldwide fame.
