William Kelly is a lie. Billy Sing was the real deal.
This film whitewashed an Australian-Chinese soldier named Billy Sing. Apparently the filmmaker didn't feel the man suffered enough anti-Chinese racism in 1917, so he rewrote him as strictly Anglo. The battle back home seems to have been invented from whole cloth.

I really wanted to like this small budget flick
The story had promise but the weak acting and dumb over-exaggeration killed it for me.
I guess it would make good comedy if satire is your thing?

One of the best Australian movies I've ever seen. Wonderful story.
