The Sentimental Bloke was adapted from CJ Dennis' 1915 verse novel by Australian film industry power couple: legendary director Raymond Longford, and star Lottie Lyell.
 
A huge box-office hit with audiences in 1919-20, The Sentimental Bloke is one of the few silent-era Australian films to have survived in its entirety.
 
The NFSA marked the centenary of this silent film classic with a new digital restoration and specially composed score by ARIA-award winning musician Paul Mac.
 
Join us as we present the restored title complete with pre-recorded score. Composer Paul Mac will join us on stage after the screening for a Q&A session.
 
The film tells the story of Bill, a wayward Aussie bloke played by Arthur Tauchert, and his love for Doreen, played by Lyell. It was shot on locations including Manly Beach and the-then rough streets of Woolloomooloo, offering a rare glimpse of Sydney 100 years ago.
