Mark Blum (Richard Mason)
At the beginning of the film, we meet Richard Mason, played by Mark Blum. He is Sue Charlton’s (played by Linda Kozlowski) boyfriend and eventual fiancé, as well as the editor of her father’s newspaper, for which she works. When we meet her, she’s working on a story about a man called Crocodile Dundee. Blum, a great multi-faceted bad guy in the movie, is well-educated and from a desirable background, but isn’t as macho as Mick. Sue ends up chasing after Mick instead.
