Episode 17: The Scarecrow (1982)

November 10, 2016

Ronald Hugh Morrieson's 'The Scarecrow' has one of the most memorable opening lines in NZ literature, setting a tone that could prove difficult to translate from page to screen. Never Repeats takes a gander at Sam Pillsbury's 1982 film adaptation and discusses the production, how the film holds up, and whether it manages to capture the gothic, darkly humourous tone of Morrieson's writing.
