The Man from Snowy River

  • Film

Time Out says

Same name, but this movie based on an epic poem by one AB 'Banjo' Paterson, about a young mountain boy's efforts to tame a stallion, is not the work of the Mad Max director. This other Miller dolls up a routine passage-to-manhood saga with widescreen mountain locations and a camera that only moves to show off the expensive production values. The presence of Kirk Douglas in two roles (his scallywag performance and his gritted one) attempts to give the film the gloss of an American Western, fooling no one.
