The Screen Guide

The story of Paul Hogan is that of almost accidental supernova of raw comedic talent exploding onto the entertainment scene of first Australia and then the world. How a married-at-eighteen blue-collar worker with five kids (and on to his fortieth job) went on talent contest New Faces as a dare from his work-mates and ended up completely wowing the audience and opening the door to completely unanticipated new life.
