Reference Number: DCDL-0000308

Two little boys are standing in front of a small-town cinema looking at the title 'The World's fastest Indian' and trying to guess what the film is about. One of them suggests that it might be about a fellow who could hear earthquakes coming. Refers to the premier in Invercargill of the film 'The World's fastest Indian' that features an aging Invercargill man, Burt Munro, who attempts to break the world speed record on a souped-up Indian Scout motor-cycle. The film is directed by Roger Donaldson and features Anthony Hopkins as Burt Munro.
