Cult Sinema Australiana presents: They're a Weird Mob
244–248 William St
Based on the popular Australian comic novel written by John O'Grady under the pseudonym "Nino Culotta" (the name of the main character of the book), this is a “reverse Crocodile Dundee” fish-out-of-water comedy about a goofy, good-natured Italian immigrant, newly arrived in Australia. He expected to work for his cousin as a sports writer for an Italian language magazine. However, on arrival in Sydney Nino discovers that the cousin has abandoned the magazine, leaving a substantial debt to Kay Kelly. Nino declares that he will get a job and pay back the debt.
