Set in the Sydney working class suburb of Woolloomooloo and based on the best-selling verses of C J Dennis’ 1915 book The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke, Raymond Longford’s film humorously tells the heart-warming story of larrikin Bill – the Sentimental Bloke – his sweetheart Doreen, and his ruffian mate Ginger Mick.

This National Film and Sound Archive version incorporates footage found in the vaults of George Eastman House (Rochester, New York) and has restored the vibrant colours of the original tinting and toning.
