About the film
The Last of the Knucklemen
Release Date: July 01, 1979
|Slogan||:||«He'll try to keep the roof on!»|
|Writers||:||John Power, Tim Burstall|
In the tradition of Sunday Too Far Away, this independent film is based on the classic Australian play by John Power. Pic tells the story of a group of miners living in a camp in outback Australia. They swear, brawl, gamble, and drink heavily. Central to the story is the conflict between Tarzan, the authoritarian group leader and cocky loud-mouth wisecracking Pansy. This results in a bare-knuckle punch-up for the movie's denouement.
