The Last Of The Knucklemen Daybill Poster Original 1979
Exceptionally rare Daybill poster.The Last of the Knucklemen is a 1979 Australian film directed by Tim Burstall. Starring in the film were Gerard Kennedy, Mike Preston, Peter Hehir, Dennis Miller, Michael Caton, Steve Rackman, Michael Duffield, Steve Bisley, and Denise Drysdale. Before Tim Burstall started on Eliza Fraser he thought Hexagon Productions should make a male bonding film, and considered Rusty Bugles, The Odd Angry Shot and Last of the Knucklemen. He eventually decided on Knucklemen. He had to wait to get the rights because the Melbourne Theatre Company were negotiating to sell the rights to the US, but this fell through. The movie was shot over six weeks in September and October 1978 mostly on sets at Melbourne's Cambridge Studios. Exterior scenes were shot in the South Australian outback town of Andamooka. Critically it was well received with the film getting 7x AFI (Australia’s version of the Oscar’s) nominations.
