Crocodile Dundee Authorship

Subtitle

ORIGINAL CLAIM : What motivated the author to create the original story for the said film.

The underlying purpose at the time of creating the original story for the film "Crocodile Dundee" in 1983 was four-fold:

(1) It was to provide a “morale boost” to a specific demographic segment of the Australian population (whose morale at that point in time was at a record low) in a bid to improve this demographic group’s self esteem … just like a stone cutter polishes off the rough edges of a precious stone, with the aim of increasing its value by giving it a more sparkling appearance.

(2) It was to go with the flow and create a productive (green) alternative to the impending disastrous result, had mining of Uranium gone ahead in Kakadu National Park. Incidentally, the film turned out to be just as lucrative a project as the proposed exploitation (at that point in time) of the national treasure that is Kakadu National Park.

(3) It was to simultaneously boost the Australian Tourism Industry – which was ebbing considerably at the time – with a powerful shot in the arm and …

(4) Revive the then ailing Australian Film Idustry with an “internationally recognised” successful Australian film.

After the original story had been created by the veritable author, an original screenplay had to be devised before pre production preparations could commence, in order to pave the way for the subsequent actual production of the said original film, which started in April 1985 …  and ultimately the actual film shoot.

The author of the original story had requested that a young American woman – preferably somebody from the American Film Industry –  come to North Queensland to meet him, in order to provide a role model for the female lead role contained in his original story, before the author could devise the original screenplay (based on his own original story) for the said original film … which the author had already titled Crocodile Dundee since then.

Ms. Laurie Young, daughter of Mr. Wayne Young – the eventual American associate producer of the said original film titled Crocodile Dundee –  in the company of her mother (Mrs. Margot Young) duly arrived in Cairns in North Queensland from Los Angeles at the end of April 1984, where the two ladies were met by Ms. Freya Povey, who the author believes was from the South Australian Film Commission at the time.

The party consisting of the three ladies then proceeded by camper van (purchased in Cairns) to Airlie Beach where  they met the author at Shingly Beach (the secondary beach of Airlie Beach) in the first week of May 1984.

The entire party went on a (first) sailing cruise on the “Mistress” with the author for seven (7) days, during which time the author was able to observe and study the character of Ms. Laurie Young, to see if amendments would need to be made to the original story so as to accomodate the female lead role of Sue Charlton (based on Ms. Laurie Young's personality) which featured in his original story and who he had named from the first name of a former lady friend (Ms. Sue Parish) and the married name of another former lady acquaintance (Mrs. Loris Charlton) …  so that he could bring the character of Sue Charlton to life in his forthcoming original screenplay, as a young liberated American woman of the times.

Ms. Laurie Young and her mother Mrs. Margot Young left Airlie Beach/Shute Harbour on the 14th day of May 1984 to tour the Northern Territory, in order to identify suitable locations for filming (upon recommendation suggested by the author) before work could start on the pre production process which preceded the subsequent actual production (which started in April 1985) of the said original film titled Crocodile Dundee.

Ms. Freya Povey had to return to Adelaide to resume her work and could not accompany the other two ladies to the Northern Territory.

The content side of the Thank You card which is published above displays the date when Laurie Young and her mother Margot departed Shute Harbour as being on the 14th of May 1984, which clearly indicates that the original story for the original film titled ‘Crocodile Dundee’ had already been created and was ready to be converted into an original screenplay by the 14th of May 1984 …

A translated version into English of the song titled : "La Foule" which inspired the New York street scene in which Mick Dundee is carried away by the crowd and ends up getting lost is published at the bottom of this screen. 

The name "Irving" representing the 4th marker from the bottom left column of the page below (derived from the name "Irving Berlin") of the doorman at the Excelsior Hotel in New York was selected by the author in support of the author's conviction that a person does not need to be able to read or write music, or have the skills to play a musical instrument, in order to compose music.

              Logical Analysis of these Markers

Has anybody ever seen an apple tree which produces apples in clean cut segments of half or quarter apples, or even in clean cut segments that are smaller than a quarter apple ? 

Irrefutably, such apple trees DO NOT EXIST simply because everything that is produced by nature is always in the form of a complete entity.

If we happen to come across a clean cut segment of an apple (however small it may be) it would be easy to conclude that this clean cut segment of an apple was part of a whole apple in its complete entity at a particular point in time.

Just because we cannot see the remainder of the apple, does NOT mean that the remainder of the apple has NEVER EXISTED ... We can even conclude further that the segment of the apple that we can see (however small it may be) has been dissected from the whole apple at a particular point in time, when it was part of a whole apple as a complete entity. 

The same would apply to the dark side of the moon that we cannot see from Earth. It would be absurd to conclude that the full moon we can see in the sky is only a half segment of a sphere (or just a disk) floating in space above Earth, just because we cannot see the other (dark) side of it.

The same CLEARLY applies to these markers that - QUITE EVIDENTLY - have been cleanly dissected from the original story when the story was a complete entity, from start to finish by the author himself.

It would be defying common sense to assume that a person could tell a story in dribs and drabs - i.e. by becoming mute after talking for one minute, then recover his/her voice and talk for another minute, then go mute again after talking for another minute and then recover his/her voice once again ... and this happening consistently 96 consecutive times throughout the entire story.

It needs to be remembered also that, according to the publication released by the Attorney General's Department in October 1998, titled Copyright Law in Australia – A SHORT GUIDE - [ ISBN 0 642 209 7 ] to explain the principle of Copyright Law in the Commonwealth of Australia, we find that :

Clauses 1.2 and 2.1 clearly state that Copyright is something that is NOT TANGIBLE.

Clause 4.2 clearly states that the Copyright Act, 1968 protects an original work REGARDLESS OF THE LITERARY CONTENT of the said original work.

Clause 4.3 clearly states that the Copyright Act, 1968 protects an original work REGARDLESS OF THE ARTISTIC QUALITY of the said original work.  

[ Other relevant Clauses of the same publication are : Clauses 5.1, 6.6 and 11.3 ]

Consequently – and in the ABSENCE OF ANY OTHER VALID CLAIM or of ANY VALID COUNTERCLAIM – any adverse contention that may be made TODAY alleging that the set of 96 markers incorporated by the veritable author into his original story already in original screenplay form DOES NOT EXPLICITLY REVEAL the full LITERARY CONTENT or the full ARTISTIC QUALITY of the said original work, would be – by virtue of the contents of the above mentioned publication – totally devoid of any substance and therefore also totally immaterial.  

Regardless of whether there is recognition in good faith TODAY of the existence of this ORIGINAL CLAIM or NOT ... the Law states that the ONUS sits squarely on ALL would-be COUNTER CLAIMANTS to substantiate their would-be fraudulent COUNTER CLAIMS with empirical evidence that qualifies as legal evidence.

It needs to be remembered also that this infallible tactical strategy would have been TOTALLY UNNECESSARY in May 1984, had normal legal channels been used AT THAT TIME to obtain the original artistic work from the veritable author of the original story for the film, INSTEAD OF the covert action that was used to ambush and extort a wealth of intellectual property from the said veritable author of the original story already in original screenplay form.  

How could dishonest lawyers TODAY possibly insist that it is essential that the veritable author PRODUCES his original manuscript with the name of the veritable author, the date and the symbol 'C' in a circle affixed on it, when covert action was used in May 1984 to PRECISELY make it IMPOSSIBLE to comply with this provision of the Australian Copyright Act, 1968 ??!!

It is unquestionable that had the NORMAL CHANNELS been used in May 1984 to obtain the said original artistic work from the veritable author INSTEAD OF COVERT ACTION, what dishonest lawyers are insisting should be produced by the veritable author TODAY would already be in their possession …

In addition to the fact that this provision of the Australian Copyright Act, 1968 applies on an equal basis to BOTH LITIGANTS in any law suit – and therefore requires both parties to produce the original manuscript of their original work – any dishonest lawyer who TODAY insists that ONLY the veritable author ... (and not his opponents  –  in light of the two pre emptive denials that were made in this respect by means of a Form 250 signed on the 24th of May 1985 by the persons who have been consistently alleged to be author/s of the original story since March 1985) ... are under a legal obligation to PRODUCE the original manuscript allegedly created by the clients of these dishonest lawyers (i.e. the veritable author’s opponents in the same law suit).

Failure to do so would undeniably make these dishonest lawyers a party to the same act of extortion that was committed in May 1984 as accessories after the fact ...  

Any dishonest person wishing to contend that these 96 markers are circumstantial coincidences when they are applied collectively to the life incidents experienced by the veritable author of the original story in original screenplay form (during his personal life time) for the said original film, would be invited to purchase 96 keys from any locksmith and try to match these keys to the locks fitted to the front doors of 96 houses selected at random ….

    ELIMINATION PROCESS THROUGH TO ISOLATION

Some negative people, who obviously have not given any thought whatsoever to these markers, have consistently PREVARICATED and claimed – just for the sake of being negative by playing the devil’s advocate – that “ANYBODY” could come up with a “similar” set of markers, and these negative people have also claimed that to achieve this : “some unscrupulous people would even go as far as paying false witnesses to perjure themselves in affidavits” …

It is interesting to note that these negative people are not even aware that the statement they have made contains FOUR (4) ENORMOUS FLAWS to start with !

1.         These negative people are not even aware that people who are 29 y.o. and younger  TODAY, would need to be excluded from the unlimited number of people they have defined by the term “ANYBODY” … simply because people who are 29 y.o and younger TODAY were not even born in 1986 when the film was released … and therefore could not possibly claim to be the alleged authors of the original work upon which the film was based.

If the average human life span is taken to be, say, 80 years – people who are 29 and younger would represent more than 33 % of the population.

2.         These negative people are not even aware that their statement is SELF DEFEATING, since the fabrication of a new set of markers TODAY (which emulates the veritable author's original set of markers) would be totally devoid of any credibility as an attempt to claim authorship of the original work upon which the film was based … simply because the question which would automatically arise in such a situation is : “Why haven’t these people (defined as “ANYBODY”) devised a “similar” set of markers BEFORE seeing the veritable author's original markers ”?

The answer simply is : "Because these people not only did not have any INCENTIVE to secure the ownership of the copyright in their "hypothetical" original work upon which the film was "hypothetically" based, by devising a similar set of markers, but also did not even think about devising such a set of markers before having seen the veritable author's markers … and therefore cannot possibly claim to be the genuine authors of the original work upon which the film was based, by fabricating a new set of markers TODAY – i.e. 29  YEARS after the film had been released for exhibition (i.e. since  1986) instead of having simultaneously devised these markers in the process of creating their "hypothetical" original work upon which the said film was "hypothetically" based'. 

If “ANYBODY” happens to hypothetically fabricate a new set of markers TODAY – in an attempt to prove that they can produce a new set of markers “similar” to the veritable author's original markers – these people would only prove that this new set of markers could perhaps be fabricated by using dishonest means … but without any expectation that such a freshly fabricated set of markers would qualify as a valid claim of authorship for the original work upon which the film was actually based.

3.         These negative people are not even aware that, by playing the devil’s advocate (even though done tongue in cheek) they attract the ONUS onto themselves to convert the fallacy which had been fabricated and published in a public magazine since March 1985 (i.e. a fallacy they would rather avoid) and upon which fallacy all other counter claims are also based, into a counter claim that is credible.

This is simply because, by disputing the credibility of the veritable author's original claim, they automatically associate themselves with the blatant  and deliberate fallacy which had been created by the media (the address of which they would rather avoid) and upon which fallacy all other counter claims are also based.

The blatant fallacy created by the media since the 30th of March 1985 in the magazine Rydges is so absurd that it produces a result that is the direct opposite as to the result that it seemingly anticipated to produce back then (i.e. since March 1985).

4.         These negative people are not even aware that the LAW places the ONUS on the COUNTER CLAIMANTS to substantiate their fraudulent counter claim and CANNOT POSSIBLY PLACE THE ONUS on the ORIGINAL CLAIMANT who had already established and secured his original claim of authorship, as well as his original ownership of the copyright in his own original artistic work since May 1984.

                                ISOLATION

By simply going through only a few of these markers, the viewer can easily conclude that only A FEW of these markers would … not only ELIMINATE every other person as a possible author of the original work upon which the film was based, but also collectively ISOLATE the true author as the ONLY POSSIBLE AUTHOR of the said original artistic work. 

Here are the reasons :

 1.    Any other person would need to establish that prior to the release of the film, they had a close female friend whose first name was SUE.

2.     Any other person would need to establish that prior to the release of the film, they had (at least as an acquaintance) a person whose surname was CHARLTON.

3.     Any other person would need to establish that at the time of creating the original story, the said other person had a motive to name the stuffed crocodile : “CYRIL” after the nick name of a person who in the immediate past had caused so much psychological damage to the said any other person while employed at the HEAD OFFICE of a company.  

4.     Any other person would need to establish that prior to the release of the film they had (at least as an acquaintance) a person whose name was WALTER BRADLEY.

5.     Any other person would need to establish – by means of documentary and photographic evidence – that prior to the release of the film, they had made contact with a Ms. Laurie Young who is the daughter of the AMERICAN ASSOCIATE PRODUCER (Wayne Young) for the said film.

6.     Any other person would need to produce a letter from the daughter of the American associate producer, addressed to themselves prior to the release of the film (regardless of their different first name) in the name of “ROBERT/O”. 

7.     Any other person would need to establish by means of documentary and/or photographic evidence, that prior to the release of the film, they were involved with BOATING AND FISHING during the creation of the original story upon which the film was based – viz. TRYING TO GET A BITE, FISHERMAN, ANCHOR.

8.     Any other person would need to establish that they originated from a place so remote where NO ESCALATORS EXISTED (as being the cause of their phobia about escalators) as this phobia would only belong to a person originating from a place so remote where escalators did not exist at the time of creating the original story. 

Such a sophisticated feature could only be found in well developed countries at the time that the original story was actually being created - (e.g. in Parramatta in Sydney, NSW, Australia - i.e. the birth place of Paul Hogan).

9.    Any other person would need to establish that they had attended ST. MARY’S COLLEGE IN MAURITIUS as a student, where the principal in charge at the time, had an obsession with students smearing the college building walls with the sole of their shoes, while leaning with a foot up against them.    

10.   Any other person would need to establish by means of documentary evidence that prior to the release of the film, they were deeply involved in (or at least had a passion for) HORSE RACING in order to have been listening to the broadcast of a mid-week race in which there was a participant by the name of “RAPID RIVER” in a state other than the state they were in at the time.

 11.  Any other person would need to establish that prior to the release of the film, they had some kind of connection with the FRENCH CULTURE as well as had some knowledge of the French language –  viz. BIDET, CRESSON, LA FOULE.

 12.  Any other person would need to establish that they were born in 1946 (which was the year of the dog in Chinese Astrology) so as to establish that they were EXACTLY FORTY YEARS OLD in 1986 when the film was released – viz. HOW OLD ARE YOU ? SHEEP DOG METAPHOR.

13.  In summary, the term “ANYBODY” has been reduced to ONLY ONE PERSON whose name is ROBERT/O, had a motive to name the stuffed crocodile "CYRIL" after the nick name of a person who had caused him so much psychological damage (in the immediate past before creating the original story) at the HEAD OFFICE of a company, has knowledge of the FRENCH CULTURE  and LANGUAGE, was exactly 40 YEARS OLD in 1986, was deeply involved in and was passionate about HORSE RACING,  was also involved in BOATING/FISHING at the time of creating the original work upon which the film was based, had a girl friend whose first name was SUE, had a female acquaintance whose surname was CHARLTON and a male acquaintance whose name was  WALTER BRADLEY, was from a small place where ESCALATORS DID NOT EXIST at the time when the original work was being created, as well as had attended ST. MARY’S COLLEGE IN MAURITIUS where the principal in charge at the time had an obsession about students smearing the college building walls with the sole of their shoes, by leaning one foot up against them.

14. IN CONCLUSION :

The only person who up to this date had devised the ONLY SET OF MARKERS IN EXISTENCE TODAY, based on real life events which had ALL OCCURRED prior to the release of the film in 1986, has been ISOLATED as the only possible author of the original work upon which the film “Crocodile Dundee” had actually been based since May 1984.

So – we have concluded that “ANYBODY” could perhaps come up with a similar set of markers TODAY (but only after having seen the veritable author's set of markers) as these negative people have claimed … but in reality, not only that NOBODY ELSE had an INCENTIVE to devise a set of markers to secure the ownership of the copyright in their "hypothetical original work" – or even thought about it before having seen the veritable author's set of markers – but  NOBODY ELSE” DID … leaving ONLY ONE PERSON who HAD ACTUALLY DONE SO !!

The viewer is invited to verify the authenticity of the real life events represented by the markers listed above, by going to the screen titled "Forensic Evidence" - where there is an abundance of documentary and photographic evidence - as well as affidavits - to prove the authenticity of these real life events.

It can be said that these 96 markers are the equivalent of the material facts which had been listed since May 1984 in a pre-emptive Statement of Claim, and which material facts have been proved by the documentary and photographic evidence - as well as the affidavits - that are exhibited under the heading "Forensic Evidence".

Below is the song by Edith Piaf which inspired the New York street scene in which Mick Dundee is carried away by the crowd and ends up getting lost.

                

 

Below is the catchy tune composed by Irving Berlin [Source of inspiration for the name of the doorman at the Excelsior Hotel in NewYork city] in support of the author's conviction that a person does not need to be able to read or write music in order to not only create a catchy musical tune but to also play it for the very first time using the natural musical instruments that everybody possesses in the form of vocal chords and/or lips to either hum or whistle a tune.

              

Although Irving Berlin could play the piano, he could neither read nor write music ... and yet composed the catchy tune titled "Alexander's Ragtime Band"

  ... and here is another example of what the author is convinced of

                              

 

Events which followed the conversion of the author's original story into an original screenplay.

As per the information recorded on the post card forwarded by Ms. Laurie Young from Darwin in the Northern Territory as is exhibited below, and which bears the postage time and date of : 7.30 PM on the 18th of July 1984, Ms. Laurie Young and her mother Mrs. Margot Young duly arrived back at Airlie Beach during the first week of August 1984, and met with the author once again.             

            Post card forwarded by Ms. Laurie Young from Darwin

    

 The entire party went for a second sailing cruise on the "Mistress" with the author. At that particular time, the Rock Band "Mental as Anything" was playing in concert at the island resort of Long Island, which has since been renamed "Whitsunday 100".

Negotiations were entered into at that point in time with that particular Rock Band to make musical arrangements for the song "Live it up" which features in the New York party scene of the said original film titled Crocodile Dundee.

                

The lyrics : "Hey yeah you with the sad face, come up to my place and live it up" ... make it clear that the original story in original screenlay form for the film "Crocodile Dundee" was created at that point in time as a tool to promote Australia abroad as a tourist destination ... 

The author of the original story in original screenplay form for the said original film titled Crocodile Dundee, left Shute Harbour and the vicinity of Airlie Beach in mid October 1984, to relocate to the city of Brisbane, in South East Queensland.

Shortly after that date, Ms. Laurie Young relocated to Byron Bay in Northern New South Wales, and in collaboration with the then Managing Director of Rimfire Films Ltd. at the time (Mr. Austin Robertson) participated in putting the final “cosmetic” touches to the author’s original story in original screenplay form for the original film titled Crocodile Dundee, at the offices of Rimfire Films Ltd., located at 4 Childe Street, Belongil.  ( … Belongil is a suburb of
Byron Bay). 

The digital scan of the said  mail article forwarded from Byron Bay by Ms. Laurie Young and addressed to Robert J. Bouvet at Airlie Beach, North Queensland, displays the postage date on which the article was received at Airlie Beach Post Office 4802 (via Proserpine Post Office) as on the 28th of November 1984.

Attention of the reader is invited to focus on the postage date on which the article was received at Airlie Beach Post Office (on the 28th November 1984) via Proserpine (27th of November 1984) and re forwarded to and received at the Sarina Post Office on
the 29th of November 1984.

Attention of the reader is also invited to focus on the forwarding address at the back of the envelope, which clearly indicates that the mail article was posted from Byron Bay ( in Northern New South Wales ) where Ms. Laurie Young had been putting (in written form) the final ‘cosmetic’ touches to the author’s original story in original screenplay form for the original film titled Crocodile Dundee.

In other words, there was very little (if any) left for Mr. Hogan to add to the original screenplay to convert it into the final screenplay which was used in the actual shoot of the said original film titled Crocodile Dundee.

Australian War Cemetery at Villers-Bretonneux

Important Notice for Patriotic Australians

At first glance it may appear that the tactical strategy that was used in May 1984 to secure the original ownership of the copyright in the veritable author's original work upon which the film "Crocodile Dundee" was based, has caused some prejudice to some fair dinkum Australians. Let it be known that Australians are far from being "spineless" people. All we need to do to confirm this is to visit the Australian War Cemetery at "Villers Bretonneux" in Normandy (Northern France) and count the number of crosses as we experience the eerie feeling in the air.

Foot Prints in the Sand

Hazelwood Island

Whitsunday Group

North Queensland

  February 1984


One day a man had a dream …

He dreamt that he was walking along a very very long sandy beach, the end of which he could not see as it was hidden beyond the mist on the horizon.

For every step he took, as he walked, a second set of footprints appeared alongside heading in the same direction.

The man figured that the second set of footprints belonged to the Lord.

Suddenly, the second set of footprints vanished … and the man could not help himself thinking aloud : “Lord, he said to himself, why have you forsaken me ?” …

Carried in the light breeze softly brushing against his face, he swore he could hear a voice saying in reply : “I never left you … as you will notice when you turn around; the footprints left behind in the sand, are now twice as deep”.

“Your footprints are now twice as deep because it is through your own tenacity and courage that I have found the strength to carry you.

The war of attrition and psychological pain that you have been forced to endure have been deliberately inflicted onto you with the purpose of conditioning your mind so as to make it conducive for easy exploitation.

 

Your oppressor’s objective is to extort the precious creative talents you have for design and inventions from your thoughts through duress. Your mind has been made too weak to fight these forces of evil … but you can use the thrust of your oppressor’s own actions to defeat him.

Never despair, ’cause in the end, the forces of nature that govern what is essential for survival in this world will force Virtue  to  TRIUMPH  over  Evil.  It is only then that  Right  will replace  Wrong.

Just like the sunflowers of an entire sunflower field turning towards the sun in unison at sunset, all those responsible for your affliction  –  having recovered their reason and repressed virtues  –  will start paying attention to what you say – but it will be too late; because these people would have already brought forth their own woes and misfortunes in return for the psychological pain that they have inflicted onto you”.
