In The Naked truth Blundell writes about Australian life in the 40s, 50s and on with the insight of someone who was always part of the action - whether he wanted to be or not. He also takes us into his life - the early years of truly independent Australian theatre, the wild local film industry in the 1970s, to the rise of local television programs."--Provided by publisher.
