Very ethereal.

Is it a trick of the light, or is that garment just a bit, ehrm, transparent? Has GreatH just given us Bret in a see-through nightie?
That's the conclusion that I've come to, but...

:o This is a tragedy. You just may have to go back sometime. :lol: *drifts off into Bret as Mr. Darcy fantasy*

It's OK Nonch! I went back and had another look at my camera - seems it just didn't download everything properly so here's a few more... I had to stop myself from saving every frame! :D My faves are the ones where he's tipping his hat (flirting?!) with the maid. Lovely... *sigh*

:lol: :D :yay: :love:
Yay! So good to see those again!
As it was completely unexpected when I saw it I spent most of the film in a sort of apoplexy and didn't take it in too well :lol:


and yis, he was totally flirting with that maid :wink:

GREAT H! :hug: Ohmyflippinggawd he's so gorgeous. :heart: :heart: :heart: Of course in my fantasies, I imagined him a bit older and scruffier, but still *whew, fans self* he is too charming in the hat tip pictures. *swoon* Gloves too. I am so thankful to the camera god's that those photo's survived. :prayer: Thank you a thousand times for taking and posting them.

So did he speak with a proper English accent or his kiwi accent? Can you tell us a bit more about the story? Why does he die, and why is he in his pj's so much? :lol:

BTW, I emailed the Rotorua Museum asking if there was any way to view this film from the US. I got a very quick, polite response telling me "no." :(

Ooh, I can't remember his accent, actually (Great H?)
but I think it may have been british....?

He died 'cause the volcano blew up (in 18something..?) and a house fell on him :lol:
edit: oh, and that happened at night, hence the running round in his jim jams

:roll2: :roll2: I have no idea why, but that made me laugh out loud so hard. "He died 'cause the volcano blew up and a house fell on him." :roll2: :roll2:

Thanks hel! Did it take you a minute before you realized it was Bret?

When you say a house fell on him, I think of The Wizard of Oz with his feet sticking out from under the house. :lol:

Thank you so much, Great H, for those pics. :prayer: He was totally flirting with that maid.

well, you know, there were associated tremors etc and the house fell down. The volcano didn't actually, you know, throw a house at him or anything :lol:

And yeah, it really did take me a bit to realise it was him. Well, it took my brain a little while. I think as soon as he was on screen my tummy did a little flip (how embarrassing :roll: ) but my brain went
"wait, what? no, surely not. Where'd he go? was it him? is he coming back? oh wait, there he is... yes, I think it is. wow! it is him!! :shock: "
