Old-fashioned. Solid. Appealing,
Australian western made in the 1980s when westerns were beginning to die out, The Man from Snowy River follows Jim Craig, a young man from the mountains, who goes to the lowlands and works for the tyrannical Mr. Harrison (Douglas) while falling for the man’s daughter. It’s a simple story, sweet and earnest. Very old-fashioned, but the Australian accents add a new color.
