Sunday, August 1st represents the international debut of Legend of Pancho Barnes, as the broadcast version of the film airs on ABC-TV Australia.  We're extremely proud of this event, because it indicates (as we've always believed) that Pancho should be a woman known throughout the world much less the universe.  Plus this is our chance to turn the tables on the Aussies, since they've given us memorable characters over the years like Crocodile Dundee -- it's only fair we send them "Pancho"!
