Terence Donovan

  1. Edward Woodward, Breaker Morant, Australia, 1979.     The Aussie stage star was an early favourite  for the titular  poet,  horseman and convicted Boer War criminal – having played Morant on  the 1978 Melbourne stage.  The movie’s suits voted for an  international name (Alan Bates or Rod Steiger) before director Bruce Beresford won the very British star of the great Callan series, 1967-1972.  And Donovan, who’d made  Beresford’s Money Movers in 1978,  settled for Captain Simon Hunt.
