NED KELLY (1970)
1970, Park Circus/MGM, 99 min, UK, Dir: Tony Richardson

Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger plays the title role in Tony Richardson’s (TOM JONES) biopic of the legendary Australian bushranger. Beautifully shot and thoroughly anti-establishment, this rousing drama musters a good deal of sympathy for the poor devil, driven by police persecution to robbery and eventually homicide in the 1870s. Outlaw country singers Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson helped supply the soundtrack.
