The Fastest Gun Down-Under

Television (Full Length) – 1985

This gun-totting documentary goes behind the scenes of the Western Districts Fast Draw Club. The westie club takes literal inspiration from its name, as its members — from truck drivers to accountants — meet in the basement of a dairy to recreate scenes from the American Wild West. Director Greg Stitt (Just Me and Mario) aimed to explore "the fantasies ordinary people need to survive". His partly dramatised documentary details the impressive preparation (and passion) that goes into the stunts and live shows.

I have a job which brings in my weekly wage packet, but outside of working hours, something else occupies most of my time ... it’s rewarding, exciting and sometimes very dangerous.
– A Fast Draw Club member
