More adventures of the great Australian larrikin... The happy-go-lucky Smiley gets into more strife and misadventures in Smiley Gets a Gun. Sergeant Flaxman (Chips Rafferty) promises Smiley a 22 rifle if he can prove himself a responsible citizen by helping others and keeping out of trouble. The Sergeant keeps score of Smileys deeds and misdeeds by marking nicks on a tree outside his fathers (Reg Lye) blacksmith shop. The trouble starts brewing when Smileys father makes a bet that the boy will not be able to earn the 8 nicks required to get his gun... Smiley becomes a fugitive from justice and more than one character comes-a-cropper in this adventurous Australian bush tale!
