The Overlanders Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Australian action star [[Performer~P58462~Chips Rafferty~chipsrafferty]] heads the cast of [[Feature~V36947~The Overlanders~theoverlanders]]. The time is World War II, and we know one thing for sure: [[Performer~P58462~Rafferty~chipsrafferty]] is no "[[Feature~V23772~Hud~hud]]." When ordered to kill 1000 head of cattle rather than risk losing them to the Japanese, [[Performer~P58462~Rafferty~chipsrafferty]] herds the beef-on-hoof across the Australian continent. The 2000-mile cattle drive costs dearly in terms of personal losses to [[Performer~P58462~Rafferty~chipsrafferty]] and his fellow drovers, but in the end their sacrifices are worth it. [[Feature~V36947~The Overlanders~theoverlanders]] is based on a true story, and was specifically selected for adaptation to film as a congratulatory morale-booster for postwar Australian audiences. The film was the first non-British film to be produced by [[Performer~P80491~Michael Balcon~michaelbalcon]]'s Ealing Studio. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
