Where the Olympic Games were supposed to have begun in 776 BC, the Pythian began, or joined the cycle, in 586, the Isthmian in 580, and the Nemean in 573.

Like the Olympics, the Pythian Games were only held every four years, but the others were held every two years, meaning that victories there were less prestigious.

An excellent portrait of not one, but three historical settings: Western Australia in the 1910s, first world war army training camps in Egypt and trench warfare at the Nek. Moreover, this film debunks what was fast becoming the Reel History Curse of . So far, all historical films he has directed or appeared in have been sent straight to the bottom of the class. Gallipoli, on the other hand, richly deserves its place at the top.

Some qualities that I thought fit the Australian digger were that they were heroic, spirited courageous, wonderful, and, most importantly, they all had a real sense of what mateship was, so they were all brilliant mates. Even in the face of absolute danger they were good friends, perhaps the danger was commonly binding them together. Even now, the last remaining Australian and New-Zealand Army Corps are still mates.

The moving climax depicts the Battle of the Nek, a doomed push against the Turkish trenches by the 8th and 10th Light Horse. Much criticism has been made of for casting the fictional commanding officer, Robinson, as a Brit. In fact, Robinson is speaking with a posh Australian accent – and wearing an Australian uniform. The film even refrains from criticising the two Britons most commonly held responsible for the disaster of Gallipoli, namely Winston Churchill and Lord Kitchener. Meanwhile, what really happened at the Nek was similar to the story shown, only with different characters: an appalling case of miscommunication and misjudgment by colonels Jack Antill and FG Hughes. Lt Col Noel Brazier was the real officer who went back and forth between the two, trying to persuade them to stop sending troops over the top. The signal for a final row of 150 men to put themselves straight into the line of Turkish fire was indeed given while the commanding officers were dithering about their decision.
