Walk into Paradise at M'boro and Hervey Bay libraries
EVERY scene of 1956 production Walk into Paradise was filmed twice - once in French and once in English.
It's the vintage movie that will be screened at the Maryborough Library on Monday, April 7, and the Hervey Bay Library on Wednesday, April 9, at 10am.
The movie, starring Chips Rafferty, was originally planned as an entirely Australian film by Southern International Productions but producer Paul-Edmond Decharme proposed they go into business with the French company Discifilm.
The script was rewritten to accommodate two French stars and shooting began in New Guinea in June, 1955, and took place over 12 weeks.
Despite the difficulties of shooting on location, the film was finished only three days behind schedule.
Councillor for community George Seymour said the vintage movie screenings were an example of how the library was developing new ways to encourage culture, education and recreation.
"The libraries are like a village green, where members of the community can meet, discuss ideas and pursue their interests," he said.
"It is a free and welcoming public space."
A 'golden oldie' is shown each month at the Hervey Bay and Maryborough Libraries.
Places are limited to ensure everyone has an enjoyable and comfortable vintage film viewing.
