Miller and Max by Luke Buckmaster | Hardie Grant Publishing

Miller and Max George Miller and the making of a film legend


George Miller made his first film, Mad Max, in 1976 after raising $300,000 from family and friends and hiring a no-name actor, Mel Gibson. Edited in his kitchen, it would become the most profitable film ever made, a position it held for over two decades.

Miller and Max is the story of two heroes. One, a leather jacket-clad road warrior whose adventures in a dystopian future have made an indelible imprint on global popular culture. The second, the artist who created him: a softly spoken son of Greek and Turkish immigrants, whose life charts a spectacular course from small-town Australia to the highest echelons of Hollywood. Featuring contributions from cast, crew and family, Miller and Max is a revelatory biography of a piece of film history.
