Gibson Plans Holt Biopic
Mel Gibson is hoping to bring former Australian Prime Minister Harold Holt's life to the big screen.
The movie mogul admits he has always been fascinated by Holt's life and death and now he plans to make a biopic about the man.
He says, "In the 1960s, Harry went for a swim on Cheviot Beach near his pad at Portsea in Victoria and never came back. That's not even half as interesting as the life the man led."
Holt was presumed dead after disappearing in December 1967 - a year after becoming Australia's 17th Prime Minister.
