Dad and Dave Come to Town
The quintessential Australian film of its period introduced Peter Finch to audiences and was a commercial success in both the US and the UK.

Dad (Bert Bailey) unexpectedly inherits a women's fashion emporium in the city and he moves the Rudd family from the country to take charge.

When city life becomes a challenge, however, the Rudds work together to put on an extravagant fashion show that will allow them to return to the country.
