A beloved screen star of yesteryear will pay tribute to one of the nation's enduring cinema classics at a special event in Goodwood, South Australia this November.
The Q & A session will be hosted by Flinders University film and literature lecturer Nick Prescott and will follow a screening of the classic film.
Burlinson will share insights and memories about making Phar Lap, and answer questions conducted by Dr Prescott.
Also released as Phar Lap: Heart of a Nation, the film was a major box office success, grossing almost $10 million at cinemas following its release in 1983, making it one of the highest grossing Australian films of all time.
Written by David Williamson, the film saw Burlinson playing stable boy Tommy, who is entrusted to care for a gaunt horse leased by trainer Harry Telford from his boss Dave Dennis.
When Phar Lap begins an unexpected winning spree, Telford is forced to fend off pressure from other racers, disgruntled gamblers, his boss and wife. Phar Lap goes on to win the 1930 Melbourne Cup.
Tickets to the event are $30. To book call (08) 8272-1177 or click here.
