The Adventures of Barry McKenzie

Satirist Barry Humphries has put his talents to a film, as coauthor and costar. The result is what one would expect if the Marx Brothers were put into an Aussie-brand Carry On pic. It's based on a comic strip [The Wonderful World of Barry McKenzie], written by Humphries, around a very Aussie character in London known as Bazza.

Barry Crocker plays title role of the gauche young Aussie visiting Britain for the first time. His turns of phrases are witty and original, often with a bawdy twinge, and although much is in the Australian vernacular (frequently invented by Humphries), few are likely to miss the drift of the remarks.
