I remember that movie! The window shade cord tied to the Morse Code key?soundtrack for the movie "On The Beach" which was released in 1959.

We were on tour there in 1974, the band had 2 Blacks and a Sikh. In an airport, one fat-jowled pig resembling dude looking at us said "We should lock them up in cages". I remember the incident today.

I also remember the Melbourne Truth article about our stay, "Birds, Booze and Blues on the 23rd floor" to make me laugh.or you're not Aboriginal or a New Zealander living in Australia...
You forgot the poisonous jellyfish that are only 1cm round and transparent. And the Magpie birds divebombing attacks that draw blood from heads every Spring.Australians call their country the "Lucky Country"
I say it's lucky the bush fires don't burn your house down...you don't get bitten by a snake...bitten by a spider...eaten by a shark or you're not Aboriginal or a New Zealander living in Australia...
