Mad Max is an Australian apocalyptic action thriller film from 1979 directed by     
George Miller and written by Miller and Byron Kennedy. The film, which starred     
the then little-known Mel Gibson was released internationally in 1980.             
This low-budget film's story of social breakdown, murder, and vengeance turned     
out to be a box office hit; for decades it had the highest profit-to-cost ratio     
of any motion picture (cost $400,000, profit in excess on $100,000,000) only       
losing the record 20 years later in 1999 to The Blair Witch Project. The movie     
was also notable for being the first Australian film to be shot with a             
widescreen anamorphic lens.                                                         
It was followed by two sequels, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior and Mad Max: Beyond
