We Did It For Alan!

A controversial benchmark of Australian cinema and a monumental part of the 70s Ozploitation movement, Alvin Purple is Tim Burstall's (Petersen) legendary film that introduced full-frontal nudity to a mainstream audience and blazed a trail of outrageous romp-inspired cinematic mayhem.

Alvin Purple (Graeme Blundell, Don's Party) is a young, naïve man with a great future ahead of him. But there is more to Alvin than meets the eye, and it is not long before he is thrust into a series of saucy adventures where women are attracted head over heels and find him sexually irresistible.Bounding from one hilarious escapade to another Alvin effortlessly becomes the centre of every woman's attention, affection and desire - from accepting the amorous comfort of his teacher's wife to demonstrating the versatility of a waterbed - Alvin knows every trick in the book.

Featuring Abigail (Number 96), Jacki Weaver (Caddie), Lynette Curran (Bliss) and Penne Hackforth-Jones (Mao's Last Dancer), Alvin Purple remains a household name for more reasons than one.
