Following the incredible success of the TV series Number 96, Cash-Harmon Productions brought the residents of Australia’s favourite block of flats to the big screen.
Vera Collins (Elaine Lee) is gang-raped by a group of bikies and recovers at the home of her socialite friend Claire Houghton (Thelma Scott). There she is romanced by distinguished politician Nicholas Brent but worries that her shady past may harm his career.
Meanwhile, Dorrie (Pat McDonald) and Herb (Ron Shand) Evans begin arrangements for the celebration of their Ruby wedding anniversary with Roma (Philippa Baker), Arnold (Jeff Kevin), Norma (Sheila Kennelly) and Dudley (Chard Hayward) all crossing wires and duplicating tasks while attempting to help out and cut costs.
A shocking discovery by Flo (Bunney Brooke) threatens to halt the celebrations altogether and brings a new man into Dorrie’s life.
Aldo (Johnny Lockwood) is struggling to work two jobs after accidentally losing the money he had secretly pocketed in the deli to avoid paying income tax on it, and Lucy is suitably unimpressed after Les (Gordon McDougall) ropes Alf (James Elliott) into his latest money-spinner; a sauna in the basement of the block of flats.
The film was shot in eleven days in December 1973 on 16mm film and then blown up to 35mm.
