The Quick Brown Fox

Australia, 1980 (MIFF 1980)

Director: Malcolm Robertson

Another in the series sponsored by the Australian Film and Television School of films by Australian Theatre Directors. Malcolm Robertson demonstrates a sense of deft touch in his story of the outlandish way that a best-seller is written and publicised. There is an exuberant performance by Gary Day in the leading role.
