Razzle Dazzle

Razzle Dazzle (Darren Ashton, 1984) wr. Robin Ince, Carolyn Wilson, dp Garry Phillips; Ben Miller, Kerry Armstrong, Shayni Notelovitz, Denise Roberts, Steve Le Marquand, Tara Morice, Roy Billing, Nadine Garner, Toni Lamond, Damon Gameau, Noeline Brown, Barry Crocker, Paul Mercurio, Andrew McFarlane, Leo Sayer, Lisa Hensley

How did the producers get all those name actors into this little film? I guess it's a showbiz story, and Lamond, Crocker, Mercurio etc. are showbiz people. But it's a very unusual film when an actor as good as Roy Billing get one line. I think I'm right in saying that Tara Morice got none at all (despite being the lead actress in another film). She is very good in this! The actor who played opposite her in that (I'm referring to Strictly Ballroom) is in this - but as himself! - Paul Mercurio. Nadine Garner's part was only slightly bigger - and she has also played the lead in two features: Mull and Metal Skin.
