With over one million burials Rookwood is the world's largest Victorian cemetery. It services over 90 different religious and cultural denominations, making is truly representative of Sydney's diversity. Over the years many famous, and sometimes infamous, people have been interred at Rookwood and this series of short bio films - titled 'Rookwood Notables' - shows four fascinating aspects of Sydney life through the stories of John Fairfax, David Jones & Anthony Hordern, Roye Rene and Mei Quong Tart.
Better known as 'Mo' – Australia's most successful vaudeville star – was one of the world's greatest clowns and also a singer, actor and radio star. The film has some rare recordings of 'Mo' from the radio series 'McCackie's Mansion'.
