Fatty Finn raises dough for a new radio. Along the way, he encounters mishaps with a gang of bullies.
Ten-year old local larrikin Fatty Finn (Ben Oxenbould) leads a carefree life of mischief and occasional mayhem. Keen to listen to a blockbuster Ashes Test match between the English and Australian cricket teams, featuring his all-time sports hero, Donald Bradman, Fatty endeavours to raise money for a crystal radio set, selling bottles, collecting horse manure and even organising a lively street fair. The only thing standing in his way is arch rival, Bruiser Murphy (Greg Kelly), who does everything he can to destroy Fatty’s efforts and bring about his spectacular downfall.
Presented in a brand new transfer, showcasing cinematography by Academy Award® winner, John Seale (The English Patient), and based on Syd Nicholls’ popular comic strip series, Fatty Finn celebrates one of Australia’s great gems with flair and everlasting charm.
