Came A Hot Friday

NZ comedy classic with genius Billy T. James, directed by Ian Mune.

1949 New Zealand. Wes (Bland) and his sidekick Cyril (Gordon) are conmen scamming small-town bookies. They arrive in Tainui and get to work with the help of gullible local, Don (Lawrence). They make some money, more by luck than good judgement, but when Wes wins a large amount gambling at the villainous Sel Bishop's (Napier) illicit casino, Sel avoids paying up. Wes and company join forces with the bizarre 'Mexican' bandit, the Tainui Kid (James), and set out to get the deserved winnings.

I was told a couple of days ago by an obscure video shop owner that the rights were sold to an overseas distributor and has since gone bankrupt ∴ no DVD.

This is one of the best New Zealand movies ever released and I have been trying so hard to find it on DVD, and it is impossible, are they ever going to release this on DVD, it would only be fair in memory of Billy T.

It strives to be nothing more than it set out to be, and achieves this with a good-humored sense of almost laughing at itself.
