In Armchair Cinema entry Tully which was a UK-Australian co-production sees insurance investigator Tully tracks a cache of stolen art and antiques worth two million pounds and the man behind their theft from London to Sydney and finds that he’s not the only one interesting in recovering them.
Completely American style opening titles and strident theme music that unfortunately is carried over into the production itself. There is also lots of stereotypical Australian action going on when Tully is in Sydney and some overdone direction. There are some positive points though, Anthony Valentine is excellent as Tully and Jack Thompson is always worth watching, good to see Noeline Brown acting against type here too as a landlady who blackmails Eastman’s wife. The production was 98% filmed in Sydney with a few opening linking shots of London at the start.
