Newcomer Colin Petersen takes the starring role alongside veterans double-Oscar-nominated Sir Ralph Richardson and Chips Rafferty in this charming and delightfully family film favourite.
Loveable scamp Smiley Greevins is the most mischievous boy in the whole of the small Australian outback town of Murrumbilla. He s forever getting into scrapes with kindly police sergeant Flaxman (Rafferty) - but Reverend Lambert (Richardson) knows he's a good child at heart. Smiley comes from the poorest family in town but when he dreams of owning his own bicycle - he won't let anything stand in his way!
Watch out Murrumbilla as Smiley tries his hand at everything going to raise a few pennies and ends up getting accidentally involved with opium smuggling to the local aborigines!
Australia's answer to the Just William books, Smiley was filmed in full colour in beautiful locations around Sydney. The film has been digitally remastered and restored by 20th Century Fox especially for this, its first-ever release on UK DVD.
First released: Monday 10th September 2012
If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
