Wild Man is the missing link between early 70s musical legends Blerta, and the burgeoning of Blerta trumpeter Geoff Murphy as a man whose directing talents knew few bounds. The Blerta ensemble relocated to the mud-soaked West Coast to create this tale of pioneer con men and silent movie style pratfalls. Bruno Lawrence and Ian Watkin arrange a fight - and bets - in each town they arrive in, while Bruno channels his inner wild man from under a leopard skin. Wild Man was released in cinemas alongside John Clarke and Geoff Murphy’s Dagg Day Afternoon.

Would you get out of the way then if you’re not going to buy anything? You might be interested in a little device here I have (brandishing whip). This is a remedy for people who won’t get out of the bloody way.
– Dodgy travelling salesman Dr Daggenheimer (John Clarke)
