Compiled using the resources of the library of Australia's National Film & Sound Archive, Australian Film Tales brings to ebook a collection of rarely disseminated anecdotes, case histories and industry insider reports from a century of Australian cinema. It is only available on ebook. From the thriving silent era prohibition against "bushranger" films following the popularity of Ned Kelly in the name of public safety through the collapse of the industry in the 1950s and the Australian New Wave of the 1970s and such classic Aussie films as Mad Max, Picnic at Hanging Rock, Sunday Too Far Away, Wake in Fright, Alvin Purple and the international smash hit Crocodile Dundee and on to the current state of industry tax levies attracting American filmmakers. From the Sydney Film Festival's clash with the national censors to the drunken brawl that left Mel Gibson's face bruised enough to catch the attention of the casting director for Mad Max to the furore over importing American actress Meryl Streep to play national icon Lindy Chamberlain. This is the first comprehensive anecdotal back story of the Australian Film Industry, written and designed to be accessible to international readers as an informative and entertaining introduction to a national cinema which has legitimate claims to having made the first ever feature film. Author Robert Cettl is a former SAR Research Fellow at Australia's National Film & Sound Archive. A member of ALIA (Australian Library & Information Association) his film non-fiction in print is available in the USA through McFarland & Co. Inc. He is a former ARTS-SA grant recipient and holds post-graduate degrees in film, information study and TESOL.
