The pavlova western Good For
Nothing, is a unique western
about an odd romance between
a savage outlaw and a strong
willed English woman, filmed
in Central Otago
Good For Nothing is an
incredible accomplishment, and
testament to our sometimes-
mocked No 8 wire genius. Put
together over six years by
writer-director Mike Wallis, an
alumnus of Weta Workshop,
and his fiancee Inge Rademeyer
(who plays the female lead)
almost in their back shed, the
quality of this pavlova western,
as someone hopefully called it,
is remarkable. But is it a good
It looks a million dollars. The
awesome vistas of Central
Otago, with their Grahame
Sydney-esque distant backdrop
of parched peaks, are an admir-
able stand-in for Colorado and
Cohen Holloway, seen most
memorably recently as proven-
innocent David Dougherty, is a
strong, taciturn outlaw called
simply The Man. His face needs
a wash, and he spits at inappro-
priate moments. But apart from
the attempted rape of our her-
oine, Isabella, he doesn't seem
The reason he can't carry out
the act is that he suffers a case
of the droops.
Englishwoman Isabella is
supposed to have been put in
the care of her Antipodean
uncle after a family tragedy, an
eventuality that The Man upset
in a savage shootout in a dirt-
floor bar in the middle of
The Man goes in search of a
cure, so that he can have his
way with Isabella.
First, he goes to a stagecoach
and tumbleweed town. You a
doc? My dick's broke.''
Then to a Chinese medicine
man, and an Indian healer.
The main problem is that,
despite a posse chasing the
couple, for example, its
storytelling makes for insuf-
ficient tension or narrative
drive, and there's a discrepancy
between the film's moments of
violence and occasional tender-
ness that's never quite resolved.
Despite these faults, it has a
huge heart and inventive spirit.
Civilised: High tea at Feilding Little Theatre.
What's in a name? High tea or afternoon tea?
For more years than can be remembered, the
Feilding Little Theatre Players have served a three-
course dinner before their shows. More recently, as
an alternative to dinner, a popular and sought-after
treat has been provided for Sunday matinees. It
comes in the form of an English High Tea served
before the show. Patrons receive a selection of cakes,
biscuits, savouries and the obligatory cream scones
with their cup of tea.
History of High Tea and English
High Tea is often a misnomer. Most people refer to
afternoon tea as high tea because they think it
sounds regal and lofty, when in reality high tea, or
meat tea'' is dinner. During the second half of the
Victorian period, known as the industrial revolution,
working families would return home tired and
exhausted. The table would be set with any manner
of meats, bread, butter, pickles, cheese and of course
a pot of tea. None of the dainty finger sandwiches,
scones and pastries of afternoon tea would have been
on the menu. Because it was eaten at a high, dining
table rather than the low tea tables, it was termed
The Feilding Little Theatre has chosen a blend of
both for the enjoyment of their audience.
If this is your cup of tea'', join them on Sunday,
May 20 at 3.15pm. Bookings are essential as there
are limited seats.
Dinner is available before evening shows, which
start tomorrow, Friday, May 11. Tickets may be pur-
chased at the theatre booking office between noon
and 3pm each week day and 10am to noon on
Saturdays. Telephone bookings can be made by ring-
ing 323 5051 or 323 4916.
