2019 marks the centenary of the silent classic The Sentimental Bloke starring Arthur Tauchert. In his final role, Tauchert was featured in Australia's first screen musical, Showgirl's Luck. It's a ground-breaking movie, set in the Blue Mountains, which marks the transition from silent films to the "talkies". Does the Bloke sound as well as look like a dinkum Aussie? Come and discover!
