But the town's attractive Widow (Irene Papas) is shunned because she refuses to take one of the many unattached men as a lover.

[Australian cinema : the period film]( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Two examples of the period film which were central to the first decade or so of the Australian film revival. Both draw centrally on myths about 'Australianess' including that of the little Aussie battler (the portrayals of Fred Burley and Caddie). Undercover (1983), set in the city and country in the 1930s, is uncertainly nostalgic in mood. Its multiple plots ambiguously interweave the search for personal and national identity. The 'Australianess' of Caddie is more clearly focused which may explain its greater audience appeal. Although based on the autobiography of a Sydney barmaid in the 1920s, it is essentially dignified rather than gritty, its portayal of Caddie neither challenging patriarchal values nor subservient to them
