The Man From Snowy River Australian Banjo’s Poem Video

Banjo Paterson wrote the poem ‘The Man From Snowy River’. It is as Australian as you can get. He tells the story of the tough horsemen of Snowy Mountains. Footage is from the movie ‘Man From Snowy River’ presented by Michael Edgley International & Cambridge Films – perhaps the greatest movie ever made in Australia by Australians. It stars Tom Burlinson, Jack Thompson, Sigrid Thornton and Kirk Douglas (for US distribution purposes & the money men), he did a pretty good job all in all. For those of you who have not seen the movie do yourselves a favor and go get the DVD. You will not regret it.
