What a enjoyable documentary. I have been looking for the painting "Elizabeth"featured in this movie since seeing it one time in Raglan at a second hand shop and remember admiring it but not having the finances at the time, i have since searched high and low online and second hand shops but to no avail. Please if anyone has any information on where i could purchase this prit please contact me at [email protected]

The Tahitian lady in question is Rarotongan born and is of Tahitian descent. She is my mother and was a dancer who formed one of the first youth dance group on the island. Charlie Mcfee somehow copied one of her many photographic images onto velvet.There is no doubt in my mind that the fair dusky maiden of the South seas exists and is well into her seventy first year.

I have a cameo in this film and didn't know when they were shooting it that Charlie Mcfee was Edgar Leeteg's spiritual heir. I was so moved iwhen I finally saw the final cut that I cried at the end when Charlie played the harmonica because it closed the door an era that's gone forever now. The lost "paradise" and good times that produced the style of painting featured in Sima Urale's excellent documentary movie. It's nice to see it available for viewing on the internet now.

I have two of Mcphee's velvet paintings. One is of a Maori called "The Atoll Man". The other is of a nude Tahitian young lady whom could be his wife Elizabeth.
I would like to sell these painting. If interested contact carolemurrell @ ymail.com
