'This article seeks to provide an overview and analysis of the 2011
Australian film, Red Dog as a popular cultural product from Western Australia.
Set in a working class mining community in the 1970s, I argue that it provides a
new outback legend in the form of Red Dog. This article stems from a review of
Red Dog as Film of the Year written for the forthcoming Directory of World
Cinema: Australian and New Zealand Second Edition from Intellect Books.' (Author's abstract)
