Sir: Talking of "Ned Kelly" films (letters, 7 August), don't forget the Peter Finch one made at Pinewood in 1957. The nearest we got to Australia was the back lot at Pinewood! As one of Ned's gang I remember the hot days in the saddle as we rode across the built-up sand dunes.

If memory serves me rightly it was called Robbery Under Arms. No masterpiece, but a lot of fun and Peter made a dashing Ned. It was directed with great outback gusto by Jack (A Town Like Alice) Lee.
