Classic Action: The Planter's Wife / Robbery Under Arms / The Long Duel

Close the doors, dim the lights, take a seat and leave your troubles behind. The Classic Matinee Triple Bill is your exclusive gold pass to the Matinee Era - a time of quality, style and sophistication. The Planter's Wife (1952) A tribute to the women who, side-by-side with their husbands, faced the terrors of living in bandit-ridden Malaya. In particular the story of a wife who intends to leave her husband until they are reunited when their home is attacked by armed terrorists. Robbery Under Arms (1957) Based on the adventure novel of the same name, and set in the nineteenth century outback, this is the story of the biggest cattle-rustling coup in Australian history and the men who planned and executed it. Having shared the proceeds, they go their separate ways. Fate, however, has other ideas and they are brought together in a violent climax. The Long Duel (1967) In the turbulent days of the 1920s, Indias North West Frontier is the scene of constant conflict, stemming from the lack of understanding between British officers and native tribes. The Bhanta tribe is wrongfully imprisoned along with their Sultan. The Sultan and a small band of men break out and head for freedom, but they have become outlaws, hunted remorselessly by the British under Superintendent Stafford. Freddy Young, a young officer, is delegated to track them down and realises that his adversary is a man of ideals - a victim of circumstance. In a desperate attempt to avert a massacre, Freddy pleads with the Sultan to give himself up. With the supreme moment of personal sacrifice at hand, the long duel draws to its end.
