A Nation is Built( Visual )

5 editions published between 1937 and 1995 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Video of a film released in 1938 to commemorate 150 years of settlement in Australia by Europeans, and the progress of our society up to 1937. Film quality is good. The focus is mainly on N.S.W., and how we have turned a wild untamed country into a miracle of modern industry and progress
The Australian fairy tale of the three koala bears and little Goldilocks( Book )

1 edition published in 1930 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The squatter's daughter( Visual )

4 editions published between 1933 and 1989 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This melodrama within a celebratory, nationalistic framework is centred on Australia's upper class, the squattocracy. Social harmony is disturbed by the rivalry between adjoining sheep stations, one managed by a strong-willed woman, the other by a weak-willed schemer. Melodramatic revelation and incident including a realistically staged bushfire is leavened by comic interludes involving two disaster-prone shearers. A mysterious stranger ultimately domesticates the heroine and, in effect, restores the status quo.]
On our selection( Visual )

4 editions published between 1932 and 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Steele Rudd stories of Dad and Dave Rudd in outback Queensland. Emotion and comedy in the fight against adversity gave this film enormous appeal to Australian audiences, making it the major box office success of its time in Australia and New Zealand
Strike me lucky( Visual )

4 editions published between 1934 and 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Mo teams up with a little runaway girl who is being pursued by kidnappers. Rene's risque humour and pathos did not adequately transfer to the screen, and despite a ballet of Busby Berkeley proportions the film was a commercial failure.]
Straight from the heart by Sanjay Leela Bhansali( Visual )

2 editions published between 1963 and 2000 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the 'Ghan' train, which runs from Port Augusta to Alice Springs, named in memory of the Afghans who drove the camel teams in Central Australia before the coming of the railway

The silence of Dean Maitland( Visual )

2 editions published between 1934 and 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A clergyman who denies responsibility for the pregnancy of his lover and the death of her father remains silent for twenty years while his best friend languishes in prison after being wrongly convicted for the clergyman's crime. This melodrama had been filmed first by Raymond Longford in 1914. By updating the earlier success Hall's intention was to make a feature that would work with both British and Australian audiences

2 editions published between 1933 and 1940 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2 editions published in 1939 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feature film comedy with Cecil Kellaway as a middle-aged suburban worker who quietly rebels against society. Directed by Ken G. Hall. Supporting cast includes Peter Finch and Jean Hatton (Australia's Deanna Durbin)
Dad Rudd, M.P( Visual )

2 editions published in 1940 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth of the Dad and Dave comedies and the last Cinesound feature. This film had the least in common with the Steele Rudd stories and made Dad into a bastion of middle class morality, a confident speaker for the 'little man'. The basically serious plot about political corruption still includes comic interludes as well as polished special effects work in scenes of a dam collapse

Let George do it! by George Foreman( Visual )

2 editions published between 1938 and 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Unemployed and frustrated in love, Joe gets drunk and arranges with a gangster for a painless death. The next day, however, he becomes heir to a fortune and tries to cancel the deal. With a scenario written specifically for film, the humour and cinematic style are more successful than Wallace's earlier stagebound Efftee films. The story culminates in a wild speedboat chase across Sydney Harbour.]
Public Enemy Number One by David Bradbury( Visual )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For most of his working life controversial Australian journalist Wilfred Burchett chose to report from the 'other side' ... Many labelled him a traitor ... Burchett was the first Western journalist to arrive in Hiroshima and report on the devasting effects of the world's first atomic bomb ... It was his firm conviction the West was wrong in Korea, then wrong again in Vietnam. His long-standing friendship with Ho Chi Minh, the leader of North Vietnam, enable him to live among the Viet Cong during the war."--Cover
Grandad Rudd( Visual )

2 editions published in 1935 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first of the three Cinesound spin-offs from On Our Selection began a gradual modification of the original Dad and Dave humour. The Rudds are transformed into prosperous farmers. A melodramatic sub-plot involving the Rudd's sophisticated grand-daughter and a suave young bigamist is combined with slapstick humour including a bizarre counting cricket match, a runaway tractor and a drunken Grandad breaking up a Band of Hope meeting. The exteriors were shot at Camden
