Overview:
The fourth, screen-telling of Rolf Boldrewood's popular tale about bushranger, Captain Starlight, is saved only by Peter Finch in the lead and the panoramic photography of Harry Waxman. Away from the savage beauty of the Australian wilderness, former documentary film-maker, Jack Lee, drains all the drama from the round of robberies, escapes and betrayals that engulf brothers, David McCallum and Ronald Lewis, when they join the bandits. Finch is not seen enough, leaving us stuck with the tensions within the gang and the stormy relationship between Lewis and the duplicitous Maureen Swanson. The 1985 version (starring Sam Neill) was scarcely better.
