Overlanders ★★★ 1946

The Japanese may invade, but rather than kill 1,000 head of cattle, these Aussies drive the huge herd across the continent, facing danger along the way. Beautifully photographed, featuring the “Australian Gary Cooper” and a stampede scene to challenge “Dances with Wolves.” 91m/B VHS . AU Chips Rafferty, Daphne Campbell, Jean Blue, John Nugent Hayward; D: Harry Watt.
