Product Description

CONTAINS GRAPHIC VIOLENCE PREVIOUSLY CENSORED IN NORTH AMERICA

They branded him. They raped him. They turned him into a Mad Dog, and now he s biting back. Mad Dog Morgan is the true story of how Daniel Morgan became Australia s most notorious criminal. He came to Australia looking for gold but found nothing except inhumanity and savage indifference. When colonial corruption turns him into a ferocious killer, the only way to stop him is to put him down. Dennis Hopper is unforgettable in this Ozploitation classic.

I picked this movie on a whim, having nothing better to do that Saturday afternoon, and man, was I glad that I did. Filmed in 1976, this fairly low-budget movie stars Dennis Hopper as an Irish prospector-turned-outlaw during the Australian gold rush of the 1850s-1860s. He joins forces with an aboriginal renegade (played by David Gulpilil, who would cover similar territory a year later in the film of Thomas Keneally's THE CHANT OF JIMMIE BLACKSMITH) and goes on the lam, evading psychotic former prison guards and police. This movie, with its atmospheric cinematography, innovative folk music, rather seems like the Australian answer to BAD COMPANY. Hopper is really good as the harassed Morgan (with a respectable brogue, no less) and Frank Thring (who was rewarded with the greatest closing line in any movie since CASABLANCA), probably best known for playing Pontius Pilate in BEN HUR, is a sinister magistrate who tries to give Morgan his comeuppance. Don't overlook this movie.

This is a restored version of this interesting feature, actually completed in 1957 by Buena Vista (Disney) but canned for two years until Columbia rescued and released it, supposedly based upon an historic incident, and there is a good deal to appreciate here, in particular excellent camerawork under the aegis of director Ted Tetzlaff, known essentially as a cinematographer. The scenario places the action in the newborn state of California in 1848, relating of a homicide trial with the defendant, played by Dennis Hopper, accused of murdering a local Mexican/Californian during an observed gun duel, after which he is arrested by the local unofficially appointed and unarmed sheriff, portrayed by 18 year Patrick Wayne. One of the better of a blessedly rare genre, The Didactic Western, YOUNG LAND's primary motif becomes a question as to whether the United States system of justice will serve up fair verdicts for non-English speaking citizens, with the efforts of an imported State judge (Dan O'Herlihy) to organize a proper trial inside a sheep barn being particularly engrossing as the judge is not accustomed to such rude courtroom surroundings. Thanks to a rather large budget, art director Jack Okey creates a Mexican village including a plaza, cantina, jail, and other buildings, and Tetzlaff, favouring long shots shows the players in full along with the location settings, all used to good advantage in glorious Technicolor through strong performances by Hopper, O'Herlihy, Ben Stroud, and Ken Curtis as a fugitive converted into a deputy.

The film was originally shot in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio. But this 2005 DVD release from Troma Entertainment presents the film in a 1.66:1 aspect ratio print cropped directly from the "pan and scan" full-screen print that was made for VHS releases. The film has never been seen in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio since its theatrical release.

....I was hugely dissapointed in the Troma release of this film..I thought finally after paying more for company dvd with a little more prestige that the usual bargain bin varieties..I'd be getting a complete version of this film finally on DVD!...NOPE..all the nasty tidbits were cut!..the Head getting blown thru at the beginning in the Chinese opium Den..the more graphics aspects of the prison rape..the bucket of animal guts scene...the [...] scene in the Bar..the old man mooning the Bush Cop...even the mention of the word Scrotum!..All cut in the Troma Release!...I'm sticking with my old Thorn EMI VHS!!!!..I'm Pissed!..cuz I love this movie!

Stupid, but entertaining western with Patrick Wayne as the golden boy lead actor. He is a 21 year old sheriff of a small California settlement who rules over the town with solely his good intentions and good looks, while wearing no badge. He has a heart of gold and a pretty Yvonne Craig as a tempestuous bride to be that is sure "ogle" material. He wears no gun and everyone, even the outlaws, bend to his orders for no apparent reason. The premise is a stretch of the imagination and the screenplay is even more childish, but this bit of old west fluff is worth a look see, if you want to pass a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon with nothing else to do. Dennis Hopper and "Festus" from the old "Gunsmoke" television series keep things enjoyable throughout as the two heavies. There's good acting all around and the scenery and location make for ideal surroundings. If you can get over the childish feel of the whole shebang, you'll be OK. I'm sure this movie would have never been made if it weren't for Patrick's daddy pulling some strings.

A small budget masterpiece driven by another powerhouse performance by "Sir" Dennis Hopper, in my opinion, among the very greatest living actors, and solid acting up and down the line. What we have here is a tragic tale - once again the "have nots" simply crushed under the iron and leather heels of the "haves". A direct and candid visioning of why folks turn to crime and the insensitivity of the brutal wheels of capitalism and the awful legal infrastructure which supports this miserable system of social organization. Perfectly cast Frank Thring (whose claim to fame was that he played Pontius Pilate in Ben Hur) also turns in a massive performance as Morgan's ultimate nemesis - a proud and cynical bureaucrat - a vain capitalist dog-lover, who sanctions torture and killing of his fellow humanity by proxy - while he lines his belly with expensive butchery.
After seeing Mad Dog Morgan, one can rest assured, that human beastiality and stupidity has not changed a wit, nor lost a step, since the 19th century, and probably not for a long time before that. Another to the bone social critique marginalized by the corporate media.
