Number 96: The Movie "Did you see it? Oooh, it was ever so good."

Number 96: The Movie

(First public preview in Sydney: 5th May, 1974)

Vera suffers a traumatic experience at the hands of a bikie gang.

Sonia returns to Number 96 with a new husband, Duncan Hunter, while Jack falls for their neighbour, a beautiful air hostess named Diana Moore.

Aldo takes a second job after his secret nest egg is burned in a fire. (The movie's theatrical trailer exclaimed, "See Number 96 threatened by fire!")

Dorrie and Herb's plans to celebrate their Ruby Wedding Anniversary may be ruined by a shocking discovery.

Simon Carr and Nicholas Brent compete for Vera's affections.

Sonia experiences psychic phenomena in her dreams - or is it reality?

The movie had a staggered release across Australian cinemas over several months. Supposedly only five prints of the film were made in 35mm, blown up from 16mm. The movie had its television premiere in Sydney on 29th October, 1976, but Rebecca Gilling's full frontal shower scene was trimmed by the TV censors. The movie was repeated once about two years later and made its most recent appearance on 8th November, 1996. The DVD comes to Region 4 on 10th July, 2006 from Umbrella DVD Australia.
