Description - The Naked Truth by Graeme Blundell

Graeme Blundell became Australia's first sex symbol when the hit movie 'Alvin Purple' opened in 1973. A reluctant pin-up, he quickly became a household name and is one of our most well-known actors.

But Alvin is only one part of Blundell's diverse career. He was a founder of Melbourne's theatre groups La Mama, The Australian Performing Group and Playbox, which changed the face of Australian culture. He has directed over a hundred plays, acted in about the same number, and appeared in ground-breaking popular Australian films, including 'Don's Party', and television series such as 'The Box'. He is now an acclaimed writer and journalist.

THE NAKED TRUTH is Graeme Blundell's personal insight into the early years of truly independent local theatre, the wild film industry in the 1970s, the controversial rise of Australian television, and his role in each of them.
