Santo Cilauro, Tony Martin, Mick Molloy
The Australian goldfields period drama Rush (1974) was given The Late Show (1992) treatment with a slick re-editing and re-voicing which produced absurd plotlines, strange characters and 'Stupid Hat Day' on the goldfields. 'The Olden Days' originally appeared as 20 three-minute stand-alone short segments in The Late Show (1992), and were later strung together and released on video.
