FRIDAY WITH FRIENDS: "THE BLOKE" SPEAKS IN SHOWGIRL'S LUCK (1931)
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!
