Goodbye Pork Pie
Goodbye Pork Pie is a 1981 New Zealand film directed by Geoff Murphy, co-produced by Murphy and Nigel Hutchinson,[3] and written by Geoff Murphy and Ian Mune. The film was New Zealand's first large-scale local hit. One book described it as Easy Rider meets the Keystone Kops.[4] It was filmed during November 1979, using only 24 cast and crew. Its overheads were surprisingly minimal, to the point that the police cars used doubled as crew and towing vehicles, and that the director Geoff Murphy performed some of the stunts himself.Contents1 Plot 2 Cast 3 Impact 4 Production4.1 Cars 4.2 Locations5 Remake 6 References 7 External linksPlot[edit] In the Northland town of Kaitaia in spring 1978,[5] nineteen-year-old Gerry Austin (Kelly Johnson) opportunistically steals a wallet accidentally dropped by a wealthy woman named Leslie Morris.

Harvey And Jeanette Crewe
David Harvey Crewe (20 October 1941 – c.17 June 1970), known as Harvey, and Jeannette Lenore Crewe (6 February 1940 – c.17 June 1970) were a New Zealand farming couple (married 18 June 1966 in Auckland) who were shot to death around 17 June 1970. The murders led to the wrongful conviction and subsequent pardoning of a farmer who lived nearby. A Royal Commission set up to investigate the miscarriage of justice found that a detective had fabricated evidence and placed it at the scene of the crime. No person was ever charged with planting the evidence, and the murders remain unsolved. Background[edit] In 1970, the Crewes and their infant daughter lived on their farm at Pukekawa, Lower Waikato, Jeannette was afraid to be in the house without her husband after arson attacks including one in which clothes were set on fire in a bedroom.[1] At the time of her death, Jeanette was about to receive a half share in the neighboring farm, which her father, Lenard W
