Mel Gibson celebrates his 58th birthday today. Do you remember the first movie he starred in 36 years ago?

Mel Gibson received fourth billing in the 1977 feature film 'Summer City,'  starring John Jarratt. The movie follows the exploits of four boys who leave Sydney for a few days of surfing and adventure, but somehow get involved in a murder.

Well, Mel, has come a  long ways since that first movie appearance at the age of 22. 'Mad Max' would follow two years later, and his really big break came in 1987 with the first 'Lethal Weapon'.

In this trailer from 'Summer City,' you can see a very young Mel Gibson as he gets his start on the big screen.

Happy birthday, Mel!
