 “Almost single-handed, since mid-1986, Paul Hogan has kept the box-office tills on three continents ringing with his film Crocodile Dundee.  He has indeed come a long way since the days he worked as a rigger on Sydney Harbour Bridge…
In this book, journalist and author James Oram tells the Hogan story, from his break into television with New Faces and A Current Affair, through to the heady days of the present, when the U.S. television executives come to him.  But Oram goes beyond the show-business glamour, and investigates the careful planning behind such success stories as the Winfield commercials, the Foster’s and ‘put another shrimp on the barbie’ campaigns; and the selling of Crocodile Dundee, where Hogan and John Cornell did it their way – and beat the Hollywood executives on their own ground.”
