Episode 40: Came A Hot Friday (1984)

Arriba! When two hapless con artists attempt to run a horse-racing scam in the small provicial town of Tainuia they end up in far more trouble than they bargained for. A fast-paced and raucous comedy, Ian Mune’s Came A Hot Friday brings another Ronald Hugh Morrieson story to the screen with style and creates one of the most indelible New Zealand movie characters in the process. Hayden and L.J. hold back their giggling long enough to talk about the craft behind the film’s comedic set-pieces, the way the adaptation streamlines (and sanitises) Morrieson’s novel, and Billy T. James’ iconic performance as The Tainuia Kid.
