Once A Jolly Swagman Makes Its DVD Debut On June 25 Courtesy Of VCI Entertainment

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report
VCI Entertainment has tagged June 25 as the DVD debut date for Brit filmmaker Jack Lee’s vintage 1949 post war motorcycle racing drama, Once a Jolly Swagman (aka: Maniacs on Wheels), starring future box office star Dirk Bogarde along with Bill Owen, Moria Lister and Renee Asherson.

Filmmaker Jack Lee would be at the vanguard of Australian filmmaking (A Town Like Alice, Robbery Under Arms), but before heading down under he delivered this tale about Aussie flat track bike racing imported to England after the war — which proved to be a major draw.  This production was a quickie theatrical melodrama that was rushed into theatres to capitalize on the fast growing racing phenomenon.
