Bruno Lawrence (12 February 1941 – 10 June 1995) was a British and New Zealand musician and actor.

Initially notable as a musician and founder of 1970s ensemble Blerta, he went on to well-regarded roles in several major films; his television work included starring in 1990s era Australian satirical series Frontline.


Born David Charles Lawrence in Worthing, West Sussex, England, he migrated with his family to New Zealand in 1946, settling in New Plymouth before moving to Wellington in 1948.

Lawrence spent most of his life in New Zealand, but also worked extensively in Australia. He was a renowned jazz and rock drummer, playing drums in many bands, including Max Merritt & The Meteors, Quincy Conserve, Blerta, and The Crocodiles. His last recording was with Bernie McGann, Larry Gales and Jonathan Crayford on "Jazz at the St. James" in 1989.

In the early 1970s, Lawrence founded Blerta ("Bruno Lawrence's Electric Revelation and Travelling Apparition"). The multi and theatrical co-operative toured New Zealand and in parts of Australia. Blerta saw him performing alongside many people he would work with later as an actor, including director Geoff Murphy, and actors Martyn Sanderson and Ian Watkin.

Lola is reunited with Brownie after he visits the bar where Lola works whilst on shore leave. She returns with Brownie to his ship and they spend the night together in Brownie's cabin, where they are discovered the following morning by Brownie's friend and boss, Bosun. After an argument between Brownie and Bosun as to whether Lola should return to her mother or stay with Brownie, Bosun eventually relents and says that Lola can stay, so long as she is kept "out of sight" from the other sailors.

Ce film néo-zélandais datant des années 80 semble lorgner du côté de Mad Max avec son monde futuriste complètement ravagé et avec son vilain méchant (qui a une tête du chef d'un cabinet d'assurances) qui possède un gros camion noir qui terrorise tout le monde mais heureusement qui a le gentil (qui va niquer la fille du méchant) avec sa moto pour mettre la pâtée aux méchants. J'ai lu que Le camion de la mort est toujours mieux que du bis italien post-apocalyptique alors c'est sur que ce film fait pas aussi fauché et que le camion en question a vraiment de la gueule mais chez les Ritals on rigole. Le camion de la mort aurait pu être un film sympa dans son genre mais le gros problème c'est une réalisation assez molle, les scènes d'action manque considérablement de punch, la musique est moyenne.
