Ealing Studios' first foray into overseas production proved a resounding hit with this wartime "Western" shot entirely on location in Australia. Chips Rafferty stars as the tough cattle drover determined to keep his animals alive under threat of imminent invasion in this enormously successful drama from celebrated documentarian Harry Watt. The Overlanders is presented here as a brand-new remaster from original film elements in its original fullscreen aspect ratio.

Australia, 1942. Under threat of Japanese invasion the government initiate a scorched earth policy and Dan McAlpine is ordered to shoot his cattle. Refusing point blank, Dan and his helpers are determined to drive the herd 2,000 miles over some of the toughest country in the world.
