Synopsis

"Rollicking, charming, very funny and often extremely moving... it's both the best and the most enjoyable film I've seen in years. Don't Miss it." William K. Everson, FILMS IN REVIEW. "So chipper it positively chirps" JANET MASLIN, NY TIMES THE PICTURE SHOW MAN is a lively, warm and witty comedy set in the twenties that chronicles the adventures of Maurice Pym (John Meillon) a flamboyant showman traveling the Aussie back roads unreeling silent films to country townsfolk. Follow Pym, his hapless son Larry (Harold Hopkins) and Freddie the amorous piano tuner (John Ewart) as they clash with rival showman Palmer - a loud-mouthed, super-cool, ever-smiling American (Rod Taylor) - and brave hardships and heartbreaks in their misadventures on the road. Hollywood legend Rod Taylor (The Birds, The Time Machine) and John Meillon (Crocodile Dundee) headline a top notch cast in this "enchanting comedy" (SIGHT AND SOUND) that also features Patrick Cargill (Father Dear Father), Garry McDonald (Mother and Son), Judy Morris (The Great Macarthy) and Jeannie Drynan (Don's Party). "A delightful film that charms from the start and keeps audiences chuckling to the end." SUNDAY TIMES
