Crocodile Dundee Secrets, Facts And Then And Now
“THAT’S not a knife. That’s a knife!”
Most people recall the second part of the line as, “this is a knife”.
Released in 1986, Crocodile Dundee was a worldwide phenomenon. The Paul Hogan movie was the second highest grossing film at the US box office that year, beaten only by Top Gun.
The Oscar-nominated movie was a showcase for Australia and transformed Hogan from a local celebrity to an international superstar.
It is hard to believe that three decades have passed since we were first introduced to Australia’s legendary Mike Dundee, however as time goes by we only love this cinematic hit even more.
To mark Crocodile Dundee’s 30th anniversary we thought it was only fitting to catch up with this classic film’s infamous cast.
Here’s how much the Dundee crew have changed since the summer of ’86 and some fun facts.
