Call No: 79MAD WIL Author: Wilson, Jake Source: AT Place: Strawberry Hills, NSW Publisher: Currency Press Pty Ltd and the NFSA (National Film and Sound Archive) PubDate: 2015 PhysDes: viii, 90 pages : illustrations, portraits ; 19 cm. Series: Australian screen classics Subject: MAD DOG MORGAN (AT, Philippe Mora, 1976) Summary: "Mad Dog Morgan was a risky project on every level: artistic, financial, psychological and physical. What made the risks worth taking? What was at stake for the film's makers -- and for Australian cinema? Released in 1976 at the peak of the Australian film revival, Philippe Mora's dramatisation of the bloody life and death of the nation's most infamous bushranger stands at the crossroads of multiple genres and trends: a violent action movie, an excavation of a traumatic colonial past, an antipodean variant on the 'acid Western', and a radical experiment with echoes of Bertolt Brecht and Jean-Luc Godard. Morgan himself is seen as a ruthless avenger, yet also a helpless victim -- a paradox brought to life in the gonzo lead performance by Dennis Hopper, backed by an extraordinary supporting cast including Jack Thompson, David Gulpilil, Bill Hunter, John Hargreaves and Frank Thring. Jake Wilson's thoroughly researched book takes a fresh look at the historical Dan Morgan as well as the film's colourful production history and its significance in the wayward career trajectories of its director and star. Above all, it interrogates the creative risk-taking drive that made the film, like the man himself, into the legend that it is" - BOOK COVER.

Subject: MAD DOG MORGAN (AT, Philippe Mora, 1976) Summary: "Set in gold rush-era Victoria, and based on a true story, this violent, rollicking portrayal of infamous Irish outlaw Dan Morgan (a bravura performance from an intense Dennis Hopper - Easy Rider, Apocalypse Now) is a classic of Australia's 70s cinema renaissance. A prospector who turns to crime and opium after failing at gold mining, Dan Morgan spends six brutal years in prison before terrorising country Victoria with a young Aboriginal, David Gulpill (Walkabout, The Tracker). Having escaped into NSW, the bushranger and his accomplice easily dodge the police and mercilessli intimidate the wealthy land owners; but wracked by madness and a lust to avenge an earlier attack from an irate squatter, the notorious Mad Dog makes a perilous journey back into Victoria. Combining an all-star Australian cast, including Jack Thompson, Bill Hunter and John Hargreaves, with a brilliant Dennis Hopper - -who called the role on of his "great life experiences" - director Phillippe Mora (Communion) creates one of the great period action dramas." -- DVD BACK COVER Notes: "DAVID1495"; Based on the book "Morgan" by Margaret Carnegie.; Includes special features.; Originally released as a motion picture in 1976.; Censorship classification: M.
