Magic Kiwis - Bruno Do That Thing

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1990

This fast-paced trip through Bruno Lawrence’s first 50 years combines interviews, clips from his many film and TV roles, and priceless material from the vaults (early acting parts, Edmund Hillary presenting Bruno with a Feltex). Bruno talks about favourite roles, the challenges of breaking into the US after hit Smash Palace, and the music-based film he long hoped to direct. LA Times critic Sheila Benson raves about both Bruno and Sam Neill. The Bruno interviews conducted for this doco would later win an extended airing in biographical doco Numero Bruno.

I was part of that movement in the 60s that sat back, sat up and said ‘hang on, hang on a minute, why are we all leaving, why the hell do we have to leave these shores to fulfill ourselves? We can do things here’.
– Bruno Lawrence
