The Sentimental Bloke lives again

The NFSA finishes restoring the classic silent film The Sentimental Bloke (Raymond Longford, Australia, 1919) using film materials from George Eastman House Archive in Rochester, New York and with the generous support of Atlab Australia and Kodak Australasia.

The restored print screens with live music accompaniment by Jen Andersen and the Larrikins at a gala premiere at the 2004 Sydney Film Festival in June and is voted most popular film of the Festival by audiences.
