Based on the poems of C.J. Dennis
An adaption of the much loved C.J. Dennis poems "The Moods of Ginger Mick", Private Ginger Mick At Gallipoli brings to life all the colourful characters of the original poems including the loveable rogue Ginger. Written in Australian vernacular long lost, this collection of C.J. Dennis' poems was famously carried in the pockets of the diggers on the battlefields of World War One.
The story follows Ginger from his beginnings, making a living selling rabbits and falling in love with Rose, to answering the call to arms in the Great War and being shipped off to Turkey. Private Ginger Mick is a heart-warming story of mateship and a sense of national identity formed amongst battlefields on foreign shores, featuring Brendan O'Connor and Ron Pulman as Ginger Mick.
