MAD DOG MORGAN

Philippe Mora, Australia, 1976, Umbrella Entertainment, Arthouse

“After filming wrapped, Hopper visited the grave of the real Morgan (believed to have inspired Ned Kelly), drank a bottle of rum and got arrested and deported the following day ‘with a blood-alcohol reading that said he should have been clinically dead’.” -- The Guardian

This violent, rollicking portrayal of infamous Irish outlaw Dan Morgan, via a bravura performance from the always-intense Dennis Hopper, is a stone Australian classic.

Director Philippe Mora (COMMUNION, HOWLING III: THE MARSUPIALS) creates one of the great period action dramas: prospector Dan Morgan turns to crime and opium after failing at gold mining, spending six brutal years in prison before terrorising country Victoria with a young Aboriginal (David Gulpilil, WALKABOUT).
