From the evidence of this short trailer, it seems the filmmakers have got the wrong typewriter. It appears to me that they have Damien Parer using a standard-size typewriter, instead of the Remington portable issued to him by Paramount News. As if he didn't have enough to carry with a camera!
An Eyemo camera such as the one Parer used.
Just before the 2012 Academy Awards, I posted on war cameraman Damien Paper, Australia's first Oscar winner (Best Documentary, 1943, Kokoda Front Line!).
Now a 97-minute TV movie, Parer's War, starring Canberran Matthew La Nevez as Parer, is about to reach our small screens. It will be shown by ABC1 on Sunday, April 27, two days after Anzac Day.
