The Caddilac of Sydney too.
6 August 2004 | by ptb-8See all my reviews

Opinions elsewhere commenting will tell you the story but let me inform you that this handsome and well crafted film by Tony Buckley and Donald Crombie was a massive financial hit in Australia in 1976. In fact it ran for over 12 months in several Australian city cinemas and returned bouquets of praise and buckets of money to someone...hopefully the producer! CADDIE ran at time when the Oz cinema scene was in dire straits as colour TV had a massive impact on attendance from 1975-78 as it settled in. Many cinemas closed and many good films died...but CADDIE was a big fat hit and from the atmospheric opening credits, it is plain that it is. Real Craftsmanship...like another of their efforts THE IRISHMAN.
