Alvin Purple ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1973 and 2004 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Australian film revival did not begin with Picnic at Hanging Rock and Caddie but with ocker comedy in Stork, Barry McKenzie and Alvin Purple. The latter remains one of the most profitable Australian films yet produced. Its popularity clearly reflected the moment - with the relaxation of censorship in the early seventies, a high-spirited sex comedy in the Australian idiom had special appeal to Australian audiences. Alvin is an ordinary young bloke desiring a quiet life whose very ordinariness seems irresistible to women. The comedy is based on incongruity. Sex is rendered as slapstick. Jokes are at the expense of bastions of hypocrisy - psychiatry, the press and the law. The would-be recessive hero is the object of male sexual fantasy - sex without responsibility - a fantasy with which women could also apparently identify
