And Delilah : nine stories by Neil Paterson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1951 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Shiralee ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1957 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This is a road movie of sorts with Finch as a swagman, Macauley, seeking to escape his responsibilities but unable to shed his 'shiralee' or burden, his five year old daughter Buster. The episodic plot is in keeping with the genre. Finch's portrayal of the swagman as cultured drifter was perhaps ahead of its time but was too unsettling for fifties audiences since domestication is always a prospect. The novel is more open-ended. Shot partly on location in north-eastern New South Wales, this was the fourth of five Ealing produced features in Australian settings. The novel has also adapted as a mini-series for television
