“THE Marvellous Corricks” is a free exhibition at the National Film & Sound Archive about the lives and careers of the touring family of 10 who delighted Australian audiences with their vaudeville-style show.
The show explores the lives of early travelling entertainers through the NFSA’s collection of films, stills and objects, some on display for the first time, which were donated by Corrick family descendants.
The family toured Australia between 1902 and 1916 with shows that included music, dancing, comedy and film screenings.
“The Marvellous Corricks”, National Film & Sound Archive, July 1 until November.
