WARRNAMBOOL'S moment to shine on the silver screen came yesterday at the world premiere of Charlie & Boots in Melbourne.Hundreds of film fans clamoured outside Camberwell's Rivoli Theatre to catch a glimpse of stars Paul Hogan and Shane Jacobson as they walked the red carpet before the film's screening.Several south-west locations feature in the film's opening scenes including Warrnambool's City Memorial Bowls Club, Terang Cemetery, suburban Warrnambool, Tower Hill, Port Fairy, Dunkeld and Allansford.Hogan and Jacobson lamented that a screening would not take place as scheduled tonight in Warrnambool due to the Capitol cinema fire this month.``While it's great to see Warrnambool shown at its best in the movie, it's a pity we couldn't be down there (today) to see the movie in person on the big screen,'' Jacobson said.``Hopefully they get (the Capitol) up and running again as soon as possible so we can hold a screening down there and so that something good can come out of something bad,'' he said. ``We had a great time down there,'' Hogan added. ``It's such a pretty place to be and film in.''Charlie & Boots depicts the adventures of dairy farmer Charlie (Hogan) and his estranged son Boots (Jacobson) who take a road trip from Warrnambool to Cape York Peninsula after the death of Charlie's wife Gracie (Peggy Thompson). Several locals appeared as extras in the film including Chamon Vogels, Di Gale, Jim McCarthy, Rick Bayne and Leah Ramsay.Hogan described the film as a light-hearted road movie laced with dry Australian humour.``It's not an in-your-face slapstick American movie,'' he told The Standard. ``It's a gentle, funny movie about a father and son coming together. ``I believe people will have as much fun watching the movie as we did making it.''Rising star Morgan Griffin, who plays nomadic teenager Jess, said she believed the film would strike a chord with Australian audiences. ``Charlie & Boots is just such a fun movie to be a part of,'' she said.``Paul and Shane are the coolest guys to work with, they're always joking around. It doesn't seem like work.''Television acting veteran Anne Phelan, who makes a cameo appearance in the film as a truck driver, said the combined comedic talents of Hogan and Jacobson would make for sure-fire box-office success.``It was a hell of a movie to shoot because I started off in Tamworth where all the streets were flooded and ended up in 46-degree heat in Emerald (Queensland),'' Phelan said.``Kenny was such a funny, funny movie and of course Paul has had enormous success here on television and in America in films, so the two of them together makes for a great comedic duo.''Stage and screen stalwart Roy Billing, who played Roly the pilot in the film, said Charlie & Boots was one of a number of recently-released home-grown movies that would appeal to Australian audiences.The Rivoli was decked out in country-themed paraphernalia such as milk cans, horse saddles and hay bales to signify the film's rural backdrop.
