AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Crofts examines the international life of the film Crocodile Dundee. The paper essentially looks at four particular aspects of importing Australian films, using Dundee as an example. These issues are: Hollywood's controlling interest in Australian film distribution and exhibition; US cultural uninterest in Australia and its limited distribution of Australian film; Exporting Australian film to the US; and the precedence of aesthetic criteria over those of cultural specificity in the re-editing of the film.
