Archy's Name[edit]


Archy's name is spelt ARCHY - this can clearly be seen when Frank and Archy carve their names. Please correct this. (talk) 07:23, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Robinson's accent is not British but Anglo-Australian and typical of the time amongst the upper classes. It was not a deliberate attempt to mislead the audience into thinking Robinson was British - if you listen to the accent carefully you can easily pick the difference. 07:57, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Is there a citation to go along with this, please? For users unfamiliar with accents of the period, it is indeed misleading, a source explaining this would be useful. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hurljp (talkcontribs) 00:55, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Under the 'production' heading, the budget is stated to be AUS $2.8 million. In the table to the right it is listed as AUS $2.6 million. Somebody who knows the proper figure should correct this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:58, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Proposed move 2005-09-15[edit]

This article has been renamed as the result of a move request. From Gallipoli (movie) to Gallipoli (film), per wikiproject std. Hajor 01:36, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

  • Support, this seems sensible. James F. (talk) 01:27, 18 September 2005 (UTC)

I disagree. It is certainly designed to mislead; no other Australian character is given such an accent. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:13, 16 April 2011 (UTC)


This article contains a lot of opinions on the historical accuracy and meaning of the movie that, unfortunately, failed to meet WP standards of WP:NPOV, verifiability and sources. Most of it is quite reasonable, but WP requires verifiability and sources. All opinions need to be attributed to notable commentators, not some critics, etc. Could we get this fixed up?

  • Agreed. A good specific example is the assertion the final frame is evoking The Falling Soldier which really makes no sense although the images are vaguely similar they depict completely different, unrelated wars, there is no citation, and it much more logically connects to the race themes in the film than anything else as noted further in the article. Fix it any any other glaring, unsourced speculation. (talk) 08:04, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Screenshot of final frame in the movie is needed[edit]

Although the movie poster does show the final frame, we'd still like a screenshot of the final frame of this movie on this page. --Jack Zhang 21:51, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:394818.1020.A.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:394818.1020.A.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

I've removed the passage on music beginning with "The use of the adagio is a historical oddity". As I stated in the edit, the Adagio is never performed during the film, so there's nothing unusual about its use. In the article history, "(Major Barton is heard playing it before the final attack)" was removed from the paragraph in November 2013, and the editor noted "music played is Bizet's The Pearl Fishers". However, they obviously didn't remove the rest of the erroneous context, so here I am now. The original writer had simply mistaken the song being played for the Adagio, which would have been an anachronism if it was the case. -- (talk) 07:43, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Eno bottle on the beach?[edit]

"Peter Weir had wanted to make a film about the Gallipoli campaign since visiting Gallipoli in 1976 and discovering an empty Eno bottle on the beach."

Sorry, what does an empty Eno bottle (I assume we're talking about the popular antacid) have to do with it? Was the bottle of WWI vintage? Muzilon (talk) 09:21, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
