  1. I’ll never forget Rachel Ward voting for her own film (in “disguise” – a flat cap as I recall) at the Sydney Film Festival. Ahhh memories.

  2. I must say I am a huge fan of Bryan Brown and Rachel Ward.

    Bryan Brown of course did the Australian version of “The Twilight Zone” called “Twisted Tales” and its spinoff “Two Twisted” some 9 years later.

    And as for the legend that is Rachel Ward I will never forget as a kid the late 80’s/early 90’s VHS taped late night Channel 7 screenings of the 1981 slasher flick “Terror Eyes” and even to this day still haven’t forgotten that first scene with the merry- go-round. And of course she also did the 1985 Crawfords produced Australian horror/thriller movie with the Santa Claus and Mickey Mouse masks that will forever be etched in our minds that screened on Channel 10 called “Fortress”.

    I must say both movies that she has starred in and I saw as a kid I have never forgotten and according to imbd and other sites it looks like they also made an impression on so many others who saw them as kids, being up there with the likes of 1958’s “The Fly” as some of the most terrifying movies we have seen in our childhoods.
