ROD TAYLOR - PULLING NO PUNCHES
A unique look into the life of a Hollywood icon
Rod Taylor was Australia’s most famous Hollywood star in the 1960s. One of his most memorable roles was in H.G. Wells’ The Time
Machine. He also featured in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds and starred alongside John Wayne in The Train Robbers.
Taylor’s rugged on-screen and off-screen persona created a brand of Australian masculinity now enjoyed by actors such as Mel Gibson,
Russell Crowe and Sam Worthington. This enlightening and very personal documentary features interviews with Rod Taylor before his
death in 2015. There are also interviews with a variety of actors, including Tippi Hedren and Dame Maggie Smith, as well as producers
and directors who reflect on his colourful life and career.
