Another powerhouse from the mighty continent of Australia!

Tom Jeffrey’s 1979 action/adventure clas­sic, THE ODD ANGRY SHOT!

Tom Jeffrey’s THE ODD ANGRY SHOT is set in the late 1960s dur­ing the bru­tal war Australians shared with the United States: the strug­gle for Vietnam.

Harry (Graham Kennedy), a hard-edged Special Air Service Corporal, meets a new com­pa­ny of sol­diers dur­ing his sec­ond tour in Vietnam.  There’s the naïve Bill (John Jarratt), the easy­go­ing Bung (John Hargreaves), the blunt Rogers (Bryan Brown), the prag­mat­ic Dawson (Graeme Blundell), and the youth­ful and inno­cent Scott (Ian Gilmour). Because of their train­ing as pro­fes­sion­al sol­diers from Australia’s tough­est Army unit, the­se men believe they can deal with any sit­u­a­tion.  They pass the time play­ing prac­ti­cal jokes, get­ting into drunk­en brawls and humor­ing them­selves to keep their minds off the war.  But, when the first “odd angry shot” rings out, and an ene­my mor­tar bar­rage hits their camp caus­ing many casu­alties, the men real­ize their pro­tec­tive shield of humor is no defense at all again­st the harsh real­i­ties of armed com­bat.
