Blast from the past on screen

The making of a film based on 'Gelignite Jack' and the Redex trials of the 1950s is a reminder that we can compete with Americans, and work with them to share our stories.

As a young teenager, the story of Gelignite Jack Murray captured my imagination. The great Redex trials, which in the early 1950s – before television – saw 200 cars racing around the country starting and finishing in Sydney, rivalled the impact of today’s major sporting events.

So when I heard that Robert Galinsky was going to produce a film about the Redex trial and Gelignite Jack, I had to have an interview with Galinsky for Business Spectator’s Management Insights page.
