Holiday for Susan

Short Film (Full Length) – 1962

Women, of course, won’t take fishing seriously, but they’ll enjoy it just the same.
– From the film's narration
You never know with men ... If that’s what Susan’s thinking, she’s making a fine feminine job of not showing it.
– From the film's narration
A piece of England shifted holus-bolus to the South Pacific – its citizens do their best to encourage the myth.
– On Christchurch
Where visitors are moved to prance about on the beach and eat their lunch outside.
– On Nelson
