The Naked Bunyip

Graeme Blundell stars as an innocent young market researcher assigned to report on sex: He'd rather have agriculture. He looks into women's unmentionables; talks to Edna Everage, strippers, transvestites and gang bangers; considers nudity, homosexuality and prostitution. He probes Australian morality, looks at censorship - but, love plans a surprise. Barry Humphries makes a guest appearance. Malcolm Muggeridge spouts on pornography in literature. Russell Morris sings - as he undergoes a striptease. In King's Cross, Carlotta speaks movingly about her transsexual nature, and a beautiful ex prostitute bares her soul. Confronting, titillating and controversial, "The Naked Bunyip" helped revive Australian feature production and inspire classic ocker comedies like "The Adventures of Barry McKenzie" and "Alvin Purple".
