His first movie, "Crocodile Dundee," which is currently the highest-grossing movie in Australia, was rumored to be inspired by a real-life experience of Rod Ansell, whose boat was caused to capsize by a crocodile. Paul Hogan has since come out to refute the claim as a myth.

The cast and crew of the movie had to resort to staying in dilapidated huts on the Kakadu national park, where the film was shot in Australia because there were no suitable hotels around. An armed guard was also always stationed there to make sure a real crocodile didn't cause problems.
