Mel Gibson, born
January 3, 1956 in New York (his family moved to
Australia), made some huge acting contributions to the
1980's. His 80's movie resume includes Gallipoli
(1981), Mad Max 2 (1981), Attack Force Z (1982), The
Year of Living Dangerously (1982), The Bounty (1984),
The River (1984), Mrs. Soffel (1984), Mad Max Beyond
Thunderdome (1985), Lethal Weapon (1987), Tequila
Sunrise (1988), and Lethal Weapon 2 (1989).
Although Mad Max was hugely popular, in our minds,
Gibson will always be Martin Riggs from Lethal Weapon.
As you know, Gibson continues to be extremely popular.
