Neozealandia

Neozealandia is a biogeographic province of the Antarctic Realm according to the classification developed by Miklos Udvardy in 1975. Neozealandia consists of the major islands of New Zealand, including North Island and South Island, as well as Chatham Island; the southernmost areas of Neozealandia overlap with the Insulantarctica province, which includes the New Zealand Subantarctic Islands. Both New Zealand and the New Zealand Subantarctic Islands are remnants of a submerged subcontinent known as Zealandia, which submerged itself beneath the sea after breaking off from the Gondwanan land masses of Antarctica and Australia. Due to isolation, the entire Zealandia archipelago has remained free of mammals and invasive alien species. Since only few mammals and other alien species have colonized the islands of the Neozealandia province over the millions of years, the flora and fauna on most of the islands, including those of New Zealand itself, have remained exactly the same as they were when the original Gondwana supercontinent existed.

A couple of tuatara species survive in small numbers on small islets adjacent to New Zealand. New Zealand has vestiges of ancient temperate rain forests with plant species, such as giant club mosses, tree ferns and Nothofagus trees, dating from the time when the Zealandia subcontinent split off from Gondwana. New Zealand grasslands are dominated by vast spreadings of tussock grass fed upon by the native ground parrots. Most of New Zealand's few mammals are like those frequenting Antarctic shores.

Stage Door Canteen (film)

Stage Door Canteen is a 1943 American World War II film with some musical numbers and other entertainment interspersed with dramatic scenes by a unknown cast. The film was directed by Frank Borzage; the film features many celebrity cameo appearances but relates a simple drama set in the famed New York City restaurant and nightclub for American and Allied servicemen. Six bands are featured; the score and the original song, were nominated for Academy Awards. Stage Door Canteen is in the public domain in North America and for this reason is available in many DVD and VHS releases of varying quality; the film, made in wartime, celebrates the work of the Stage Door Canteen, created in New York City as a recreational center for both American and Allied servicemen on leave to socialize with, be entertained or served by Broadway celebrities. The storyline follows several women who volunteer for the Canteen and must adhere to strict rules of conduct, the most important of, that their job is to provide friendly companionship to and be dance partners for the men who are soon to be sent into combat.

No romantic fraternization is allowed. Eileen is a volunteer who confesses to only becoming involved in the Canteen in order to be discovered by one of the Hollywood stars in attendance, she finds herself falling in love with one of the soldiers. Stage Door Canteen was made under the auspices of the American Theatre Wing; the actual Stage Door Canteen in New York City was a basement club located in the 44th Street Theatre, it could not be used for the filming as it was too busy receiving servicemen. The settings were recreated at the Fox Movietone Studio in New York and at RKO Pathé Studios in Los Angeles. Stage Door Canteen was in production from November 30, 1942, to late January 1943. Star appearances range from momentary cameos, such as Johnny Weissmuller working in the Canteen's kitchen, to more substantial roles. In a June 1943 feature story titled "Show Business at War", Life magazine counted a total of 82 performers in Stage Door Canteen, provided total screen time for some of them: Ray Bolger, dancing Edgar Bergen with Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd Gypsy Rose Lee, performing a "strip" on stage Gracie Fields, singing the "Machine Gun Song" and "The Lord's Prayer" Katharine Cornell, serving food with Aline MacMahon and Dorothy Fields and reciting from Romeo and Juliet with Lon McCallister Ed Wynn, various scenes Katharine Hepburn, appears at the close with Selena Royle and in a scene with Cheryl Walker, written by Robert Sherwood Ethel Merman, singing "Marching Through Berlin" Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne working in the kitchen Tallulah Bankhead, working as a senior hostess Ina Claire, mediating a dispute between sailors who want to dance with her Helen Hayes, working as a senior hostess Stage Door Canteen represents the only film appearance of Katharine Cornell.

It features a performance of "Why Don't You Do Right?" by Benny Goodman and His Orchestra, which became the first major hit for singer Peggy Lee. African-American producer Leonard Harper was hired to do the African-American casting in New York City; these featured cast members either have extended dialogue in the story. These featured players make brief appearances in the film. Other stage and radio artists making cameo appearances include the following: Distributed by United Artists, Stage Door Canteen was released June 24, 1943, with a run time of 132 minutes; some modern prints have been trimmed to 93 minutes. Stage Door Canteen was named one of the ten best motion pictures of 1943 in a Film Daily poll of 439 newspaper and radio reviewers; the film received two Academy Award nominations—for the original score by Fred Rich, for the original song, "We Mustn't Say Goodbye", by James V. Monaco and Al Dubin. Bosley Crowther, film critic for The New York Times, prefaced his remarks on the film by stating his aversion to the contemporary trend toward all-star spectacles, which he called "cheap showmanship": But for once, we've got to make a frank concession.

As done in Stage Door Canteen this parading of show-world notables has some real dramatic point. It shapes a glamorous, atmospheric setting within which a slight story is played—a setting as real as is the Canteen for a story, old as the hills. … And, some of the acts are pretty good. Crowther praised producer Sol Lesser for creating an illusion of authenticity by casting newcomers to the screen—"anybody's boys and girls … just so many nice kids at the Canteen." He credited the film for catching the generous spirit of show people wishing to do their part to help win the war. "As a general rule," he concluded, "this writer is depressed by a bandwagon of stars. But this is one time when the spectacle brings a lump of pride to the throat."All proceeds, after Lesser's 8.5 percent, were donated to the American Theatre Wing and its allied charities. The film was such a success at the boxoffice that Lesser was able to turn over $1.5 million—the equivalent of more than $20.5 million today."Patriotism and romance mix badly", wrote modern critic Pauline Kael, who looked back on the film for The New Yorker.

"Many famous performers make fools of themselves … Katharine Cornell, Katharine Hepburn, Paul Muni fare a shade worse than most of the other 50-odd famous performers. Kael termed the film "depressing" and criticized Delmer Daves's "horribly elaborate narrative". Dave Kehr of The New York T
