A glamorous woman returns to her small town in rural Australia. With her sewing machine and haute couture style, she transforms the women and exacts sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.
The name of the town seems like a take off on the slang word Dunny which is an outside toilet or outhouse.
I reckon you came home for one of 2 things, revenge or... me...
Tilly smokes filter-tipped cigarettes. This type of cigarette was not available in Australia in 1951. Tilly was coming from France and may have brought the cigarettes with her, but even in Europe they were not common until 1954 when the machine for manufacturing filters became more broadly available.
Windmill squeak is heard at then end of the credits.
