AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Shirley Barrett's first film, Love Serenade (1995), featured one of the most memorable characters in recent Australian cinema: the burnt-out radio announcer Ken Sherry (George Shuksov), a long-nosed, grizzled '70s throwback with a taste for Barry White songs and a hilariously sleazy line in seductive patter. About halfway through the film, the two sisters competing for Ken's affections (played by Rebecca Frith and Miranda Otto) make an extraordinary discovery: on either side of Ken's ears are strange openings that resemble gills. Ken Sherry, in other words, is not just a fishy character. In some mysterious but literal sense, Ken is a fish.' (Author's introduction)
