The Story of the Kelly Gang

Unquestionably the "best movie ever" when it was released back in 1906.
(It is recognised as the world's first full length narrative feature film).

Cool thing is - that is real Kelly Gang armour (it was loaned to the filmmakers and used in the film)

I knew about the movie (I'm a bit of a bushranger nut) but didn't know about the OG armour being used (do I get points for extremely apt usage of "OG"?)

Sucked for everything else.
disagree. The cumulative musical offerings of 1939 are far superior to any hippy crap the boomers generation ever had
