The Day of Saint Valentine

The Day of Saint Valentine. "...In 1969, Tony Ingram – a 14 year old student at Melbourne Grammar School, wrote and began to produce a B&W 16mm film of Picnic at Hanging Rock titled The Day of Saint Valentine, only two years after the book's publication, and some six years prior to the production of Peter Weir's film. It was his second film, following an earlier adaptation he produced of William Golding's novel – Lord of the Flies – titled Inward Urge that was screened at the Dendy Cinema in Brighton, Melbourne. Some of the cast in the film were students of Clyde Girls School (the same school Joan Lindsay attended - though resituated in Woodend) and sections of the film were shot at Hanging Rock." From Picnic at Hanging Rock at the Hanging Rock Reserve, Victoria, Australia.
