Movie Info

Located in Australia and based on a true story, this is the tale of a group of men who decide to drive a huge herd of cattle across the continent rather than having to kill them after their meat-packing plant is destroyed. Facing all the dangers inherent to a cattle drive across 2,000 miles of dangerous territory, the photography is beautiful and the special effects during a stampede scene is incredible. Chips Rafferty (known as the "Australian Gary Cooper") plays the lead.

Critic Reviews for The Overlanders

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • Stripped of its tawdry "fictionalisation", this film ranks high among screen achievements -- with many fine directorial details, accurate if broad characterisation, and full exploitation of periodic climactic incident native to original cinema.
