Alvin Purple / Alvin Rides Again

The original Australian naughty boy returns with two 1970s box-office smash hits that helped slap a dormant film industry back into action by proving that Australians would embrace movies set in their own backyard. "Alvin Purple" (1973, 97 minutes) - Naive young Alvin (Graeme Blundell) finds that no matter how hard he resists them, beautiful women can't keep their hands off him, and what's a healthy young Aussie bloke going to do but oblige. From accepting the comfort of his teacher's wife, to mutual nude body-painting and demonstrating to a customer how to get the most out of a waterbed, Alvin Purple is the young man everybody loves. "Alvin Rides Again" (1974, 81 minutes) - It's double trouble when Oz's most irresistible chick magnet discovers he has much more to contend with than women when he meets his spitting image, visiting American gangster, "Balls McGee"!
