 Opening Of The Ned Kelly Series (1946-47) By Sidney Nolan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Ned Kelly series has always had a personal significance for me. It was through a major exhibition in 1975 at the Royal Dublin Society that Ireland became aware of the extent of Nolan's genius.
I saw the Ned Kelly armour and was seduced by its visual power, just as Nolan had been as a child visitor to Melbourne Aquarium where Kelly's armour was then displayed.
When Kelly staggered out of the Glenrowan Inn, wearing his metal armour, forty kilos in weight, and beating his breastplate with a revolver, he roared: 'Come out boys and we'll whip the lot of 'em!' Having neglected to cover his lower legs with armour, the police shot him in the knees.

 Ned Kelly movie Review at The Z Review UK movie review
Ned Kelly is an interesting look into the famous Aussie outlaw but it could have been so much more with a slightly bigger budget and more detail.
Kelly’s story is a sad one, and is to be commended at the way they have depicted this in the movie, such as the scene at the start where he is beaten by the Police for allegedly stealing a horse, and attacking the policeman who badly overreacted at the situation by trying to shoot him.
Ned Kelly is the son of an Irish immigrant, and the movie sharply shows how badly the Irish were treated, being symbolic today with the continual immigration throughout the world and the treatment that is dealt to today’s.

The Kelly homestead in Clonbrogan, marked on the maps of the 1840’s, is long gone, but the Kelly story still arouses great interest both here in Ireland and in Australia where, later on, six of the seven Kelly children journeyed when they left their Tipperary home.

 Ned Kelly Movie Review - Ned Kelly Movie Trailer - The Boston Globe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Ned Kelly is a major folk hero in Australia, a kind of Irish-Aussie Jesse James whose fans exalt him for challenging the country's late-19th-century system of class-biased justice.
When one of the enforcers makes unwanted advances on his sister, Ned is again wrongly accused of a crime, and goes on the lam in the company of his brother (Laurence Kinlan) and two friends (Bloom and Philip Barantini).
The Kelly Gang's campaign of revenge and rebellion, including bank robberies and indignant diatribes, eventually prompts the dispatch of a high-ranking officer (Rush, making the most of a limited role) to squash the young upstarts before things get too far out of hand.
