Photo Finish is a 1965 Australian TV movie based on a play by Peter Ustinov. It screened on ABC and was produced by Oscar Whitbread and starred Frank Thring.[5][6]

Thring played the role on stage the year before.[7]

It was part of Wednesday Theatre.[8] Australian TV drama was relatively rare at the time.[9]


A writer is visited by ghosts from his past - himself at the ages of twenty, forty, and sixty.


  • Frank Thring as Sam Kinsale, aged 80
  • Elspeth Ballantyne
  • Michael Duffield as the father
  • Beverley Dunn as the mother
  • Norman Ettling as the 40 year old
  • Patricia Kennedy as Stella, the wife
  • Patsy King
  • Stanley Walsh as the 20 year old
  • Raymond Westwell as the 60 year old


A version of the play had been performed on ABC the previous year.[1]


The Age said Thring "gave a striking performance" and praised the "sparkling dialogue".[10]

The Sydney Morning Herald called it "excellent".[11]
