Abstract:

An epic story of pioneer life tracing the struggles of three generations of settlers with the five sons of Matthew and Jane O'Riordan finally establishing a foothold on the wild Lamington Plateau. A good deal of the film was shot on location in Queensland under very difficult physical conditions - it was the wettest season in 80 years in Queensland - which extended shooting well beyond schedule. The film took eighteen months to complete. It was a commercial success, particularly in Australia, and is widely regarded as Chauvel's finest film. For UK and US release Universal cut the film by 30 minutes, added some American narration and renamed it The Rugged O'Riordans.
