Palace Of Dreams (ABC 1985, Henri Szeps, Linda Cropper)

One of ABC’s most ambitious drama serial Palace of Dreams tells the story of the Mendel family, owners of the working class Sydney Hotel the Dundee Palace, seen through the eyes of writer Tom Raynor who lives in the hotel.

This is gorgeous stuff, fully involving and beautifully shot, Michael O’Neill headlines as Tom but Henri Szeps steals the serial with his portrayal of head of the Mendel household Mick. The exterior shots of the pub were filmed at the Olympic Hotel in Darlinghurst.
