1970: Mick Jagger as Ned Kelly the outlaw

What can you find flipping channels these days?   How about Mick Jagger playing an outlaw in a 1970 movie?

Yes, Mick as “Ned Kelly” as the legendary Australian outlaw.  

According to a NY Times review from October 1970:  

As the ill-fated titular hero, Mick Jagger, the rock singer, with a beard that makes him appear more Amish than Australian, is, sadly, simply a dour renegade who rarely becomes the “wild colonial boy” of the legend. ”

It’s an OK movie and I kept looking for the other Stones.   At one point, I thought that Charlie Watts was in the Kelly clan.   

I’d give it a “C” for curious.   I mean that it was curious to watch Mick doing something different than “Jimpin’ Jack Flash”.
