Crocodile Dundee celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.
This is the second in a two-part series about items from the NFSA collection relating to the film.
Mick ‘Crocodile’ Dundee was a clever extension of the Hoges character created by Paul Hogan for Australian television and also featured in the ‘put another shrimp on the barbie’ tourism campaign.
Crocodile Dundee was an unparalleled hit with both Australian and international audiences, taking $100 million in Australia alone (adjusted for inflation). In the US it was only pipped at the post as the most popular film of 1986 by Top Gun.
This is a rare chance to see the diverse approaches to marketing the film in different countries, from Germany and Poland, to Japan, Russia and the United States.
