Ned Kelly
« on: January 27, 2014, 01:52:53 PM »
Ned Kelly was a revolutionary or thief depending what side you are on. But not only did he have a major effect on Australia but he gave the world something else. Can any one tell me what that was?

Don
I think he got the idea from the knights of old. But I'll give you a clue. Last night I watched Mystery Road.

But Ed that isn't why his story has been so important. Have you been to the movies lately?

Honestly, I rarely go to movies anymore.  I enjoyed drive-ins but I detest indoor theaters with their crowds and noise.  When drive-ins became passe, I stayed home and watched movies on tv.

Ed - I go to the movies a lot!  I go to the senior show - 1pm for $2.00 - sometimes I'm the only one there.  There is nothing like a big screen!

Ok
I'll put you out of your misery. The first ever full length feature film was the 'Adventures of Ned Kelly'
