Description: Don Letts examines the history of this notorious subculture in a fascinating documentary, which details interviews with members of various skinhead scenes through the decades. Beginning in the late 1960s, Don fondly recalls a time of multiracial harmony as youngsters bonded over a love of ska, reggae and smart clothes as white working-class children were attracted to Jamaican culture and adopted its melody and fashions. But when far-right politics targeted skinheads in the 1970s and 1980s, an ugly intolerance emerged, and Don reveals how the once-harmonious subgroup has since struggled to shake this stigma.

The King Reviews:

There is no doubt that Graham Kennedy was a master of his craft, with Bert Newton not too far behind as other icon of Australian Television. As such it was everytime going to be hard for anyone to accurately portray The King. While Steven Curry's performance is a reasonable effort it still resembles something of a caricature and falls well short of reproducing the magic of Kennedy.Graham Kennedy's life certainly had its bitter sweet moments with his complex and personal private relationships but I thought that the writers should have delved a tiny more deeply into his life and what made him tick. Some things appear to have been left unsaid.There were some interesting insights into the early days of tv in Australia where the participants learned their craft on the job but perhaps it was the attempt to duplicate everyone from Noeline Brown to an appalling attempt at replicating Ugly Dave Gray that detracted from the film.The fact is that many Australians grew up with these characters and appreciate and understand them from viewing hundreds of their performances over the years. Any attempt to re make icons like Graham Kennedy is likely to be very tough indeed. It is ironic that some of the more effective moments in the movie came with original footage of Kennedy himself rather than those from his impersonator.Perhaps this was too large a task. As so many have said, no one will ever replace The King.


Wonderful acting by all. Stephen Curry is uncanny in his portrayal of The King, I thought I was watching the current Graham Kennedy. Stephen Hall was also very nice as Bert. Having seen the making of this drama-documentary was an eye opener as to the complexities of this film. Many of Graham's close mates and associates were quite surprised and amazed as to Stephen Curry's acting abilities - they also thought that they were seeing Graham again!!! The another help cast were nice also - some seasoned actors like Shaun Micallef, Steve Bisley and Garry McDonald - Superb! Overall, a fitting tribute to the best ever TV personality Australia has produced!!!!


A cute well acted docu-drama but I thought it was rather jerky in places, and should have done with some extra filling. Probably, the present would have done better as a two part 4 hour mini-series, as it did not seem to fit well into such a short time frame (under 2 hours including advertisement breaks).For those who do not know of the legacy of Graham Kennedy's wonderful contribution to Australian tv this made for TV film will not mean a entire lot, simply because there was not enough of the on screen personality that was Graham to really allow strangers know why he was so revered in Australia. They will walk away wondering what the fuss was all about.Perhaps the "warts and all" approach (his homosexuality, backstabbing of others, and eventual reclusiveness)was over emphasised, which left less screen time for the TV personality that was GK. I don't honestly know, but I would have liked a bit more than what we got of the public persona, at the expense of the expose, in such a brief movie, or more of both - a longer show. It just all happened to quickly.9/10 for the acting, the quality of the rendition of, particularly 1950's, Melbourne and the TV industry at the time. 5/10 for what I felt was choppy editing, and large gaps in his career not being even alluded to. And 10/10 for the footage of the true Graham shown at the end. At least for a minute or so, the real abilities of the boy shined out on the screen.7/10 Norm
