Headlie Taylor story on film

A THREE-minute film from Australian director Corey Lazzarotto on Headlie Taylor will feature at an anniversary dinner marking 100 years since the unveiling of the Headlie Taylor header.

The film has re-enactments of Mr Taylor — played by his grandson, Phillip — using the header. There will also be numerous photos of him and the header during its construction.

President of the Headlie Taylor header anniversary committee Warren Dale said the film would cap a special night.

“It represents the whole history of the Headlie Taylor header — that’s what the weekend is about,” he said.

“A huge amount of work has gone into the film and I reckon it’ll be wonderful.”

NSW Farmers Association president Fiona Simpson will attend the dinner and several Taylor family members will speak.

The event, at the Henty community club on February 8, starts at 7pm.
