Okay, it’s —

 The Dirty Lowdown Ultimate Trivia Challenge

Who can tell me who this man is and how we know him… because we ALL know him…

Hints:

He’s not an American… The name itself suggests maybe a Brit or an Aussie…

He’s known the world over, but only by his rather catchy nickname…

He was the primary inspiration and focus for at least two Hollywood action-adventure films, a blockbuster hit and a sequel that didn’t fare quite so well…

The original blockbuster catapulted a complete unknown to stardom in the leading role, leaving his image and catchy nickname emblazoned on the minds of the masses forever…

You getttin’ there?

Much Better Hints:

The catchy nickname is composed of two words: the name of an animal, and the last name of a man…

His role in the blockbuster was that of tour guide and bodyguard for “the love interest” and leading lady, an author and journalist from New York, who’d travelled to his country for some research…

Now some of you may have guessed it by now, but for those of you still on the verge…

Really Easy Hints:

He was known for carrying a rather impressive weapon around, which was not a gun…

The name of his stomping grounds was taken as the name of a leading corporate restaurant franchise specializing in grilled steaks…

The animal that the first half of his nickname relates to is a very large reptile, normally found in or around water…

The second half of his nickname rhymes with: “Chun Lee”…

Okay, you have either gotten it by now or I have gotten irritating. So I’ll go out on a virtual limb and give you proper credit where credit is due for solving the riddle. Good going, you win a free subscription to the blog, and you’re right, it’s Crocodile Dundee… the REAL Crocodile Dundee, because there is one… or was.

And his name was Rodney William Ansell.
