‘Walkabout’ role was an unforgettable performance

David Gulpilil (Associated Press)

Dear Sir,

It is a great pity that Patrick Burgess, in researching the life of the late great David Gulpilil, missed out the film and role which introduced him to the world and made him internationally famous — Nicolas Roeg’s Walkabout, when David was just 16 years old and played, heartbreakingly, one of the three young leads. It was — is — an unforgettable performance by a boy who had never acted before, and it threw him into the big league.
