Forty Thousand Horsemen (The Chauvel Collection)

synopsis


An epic film now also recognised internationally as a classic. Dramatising the exploits of the Australian Light Horse in Palestine during World War I, the film builds to a powerful climax with the great cavalry charge of Beersheba. It is a moving tribute to the Australian soldier.
Filming commenced in 1938 on the sandhills at Cronulla, south of Sydney, with interiors shot in the Cinesound studios at Bondi. This is also the film in which Chips Rafferty first used the persona of the lean, laconic bushman that was to make him a legend. Another Charles Chauvel classic.
