A bit of trivia from Ian McGreevy:
"The Australian boy actor who plays title role went on to become a musician back in Australia. (In the film he does an lot of monotonous drumming) He became drummer for the Bee Gees and can be seen playing with them in those nostalgic old b & w clips."
Also known as 'Strange Affection' (US Title)
