Riddle of the Stinson is the remarkable true story of a Stinson aeroplane, which crashed into the thick wilderness of the Lamington National Park in Queensland. The story made all of the headlines at the time and when a wide-scale search couldn't locate them, the pilot and passengers were presumed dead. With the search called off, a local man in the area had his suspicions that the search was conducted in the wrong areas and so he takes off into the dense bush to find the crash-site. Miraculously he finds the site and after weeks lost, there are survivors. This is a film I cannot regard any higher. A true story that's so beautifully captured on film with a gorgeous score and magnificent photography. The film notably stars Jack Thompson and Richard Roxburgh and was directed by Chris Noonan who went on to make Babe and Miss Potter. Tragically the master print of the film was destroyed in a warehouse flood at the Kennedy-Miller production house (so I was told) and so the film is unlikely to ever receive an official release. I am fortunate to have possibly the best quality version of the film that exists. If this is a film that interests you then visit the shop section of this site and grab a copy for just $5. It's one of my favourite Australian films and I wish more people could see it.
