Came a Hot Friday [1984]

Luck runs out for two bumbling con men when they arrive in a sleepy New Zealand country town in 1949. Their horse-racing scam is uncovered. But at the same time there’s arson at the local billiard saloon. And the Tainuia Kid is watching it all.

Came a Hot Friday is a rollicking comic adventure set in 1949 against a background of horseracing, gambling, fast cars and loose women.

Producer: Larry Parr
Director: Ian Mune
Screenplay: Ian Mune & Dean Parker
