Comments

The URL link to the Guardian piece has an extraneous %22 on the end which sends one to 404-Not-Found-Land.

Just so you kow.

thanks! corrected that and my misspelling of Everage.

I always thought of Dame Edna as some 90s phenomenon that was part of the trailing edge of US Aussie-philia that started with "Crocodile Dundee." Not until I watched the excellent documentary, "Not Quite Hollywood," did I find out about Humphries' pivotal role in developing the Australian film industry (esp. exploitation films) and Dame Edna's origins in the sex comedies he wrote and produced.

If you're a movie lover "Not Quite Hollywood" is a must see. It's on Netflix streaming for those who have it.
