Mys­tery movie

Can you work out the ti­tle of this 1988 movie re­lease from the fol­low­ing clue?

“Un­clean Putrid Scamps”.

Odd spot

On New Zealand’s North Is­land there sits a town called Mata­mata which un­til re­cently was known largely for be­ing where the hob­bits shire scenes were filmed for The Lord of the Rings movie fran­chise. Tourists have been flock­ing to the area since the movies re­lease and now the town has an­other claim to fame … a man by the name of Jamie Grainger. A bee­keeper by trade, Grainger re­cently se­cured him­self a place in his­tory by suc­cess­fully com­plet­ing a chal­lenge set by one of his col­leagues. For $1000, Grainger had to sit his bare pos­te­rior on a hive full of an­gry bees for an en­tire 30 sec­onds. And de­spite be­ing stung nu­mer­ous times and end­ing up with a rather sore and swollen rear end, Grainger de­scribes the stunt as the “eas­i­est money (he’s) ever earned.”

5, 2007 Re­ports that Heath­cote is one of the most dis­ad­van­taged ar­eas in Vic­to­ria have been re­futed by com­mu­nity mem­bers … “I doubt Heath­cote is as dis­ad­van­taged as some of our met­ro­pol­i­tan con­tem­po­raries. In fact, we are much richer for our peo­ple.” — Tr­ish Ring.

Law en­forcers were forced to take or­ders from some­one else when fire­fight­ers were called to Heath­cote po­lice sta­tion on Sun­day af­ter an elec­tri­cal fault sparked a fire … Sergeant Jamie Ward of Heath­cote po­lice said an age­ing light fit­ting ex­ploded in the re­cep­tion area, then ig­nited in the roof … Sgt Ward said the age and out­dated na­ture of the sta­tion was a con­stant con­cern.

Phase two of the Vic­to­ria Po­lice bans came into force on Mon­day… Sgt Ward said if Heath­cote po­lice had just one more mem­ber, a re­peat of Friday's events, when Heath­cote was left with­out any po­lice pres­ence due to its mem­bers at­tend­ing the pipe­line protest in Col­binab­bin, would not have oc­curred. The McIvor Times, September 6, 1992 Toob­o­rac girls Meg Ha­gan and Sharyn Zoch were part of a team from Sey­mour Tech/High which placed sec­ond at the re­cent coun­try fi­nals of Rock Eisteddfod held at Shep­par­ton. The stu­dents then went on to win the next round at Broad­mead­ows … they also won the Best Con­cept Award.

One man has drowned and two oth­ers are miss­ing, be­lieved drowned, in a tragedy at Bon­neys Bridge over the Wild Duck Creek on Spring Plains Road last Saturday night.

Heath­cote boys, Shane Cun­ning­ham and Michael Ring, have taken their Vic­k­ick train­ing one step fur­ther by be­ing se­lected to play in the Lit­tle League com­pe­ti­tion rep­re­sent­ing the West Coast Ea­gles.

5, 1967 A re­port pro­vided by the Heath­cote Med­i­cal Com­mit­tee in con­nec­tion with the move to ob­tain a doc­tor for the Heath­cote prac­tice: “Fol­low­ing elec­tion of the Heath­cote Med­i­cal Com­mit­tee on 24th Au­gust, a brief meet­ing of the com­mit­tee was held. At this meet­ing, it was de­cided that due to the fact that no suit­able hous­ing was avail­able, a site sub-com­mit­tee be formed to in­ves­ti­gate and sug­gest a suit­able site on which to erect a new house, which will be of­fered to a new doc­tor on a rental ba­sis ...
