For many years, producer-director Ken G. Hall was the Australian film industry. One of Hall's 1938 contributions was Broken Melody, a wide-ranging tale of disgrace, redemption, love lost and love found. Expelled from college because of his drunken misbehavior, Lloyd Hughes is likewise disowned by his family. Fortunately, he discovers a latent musical talent, and within a few years he is one of England's top composer-conductors. His signature piece is "Broken Melody", an opera dedicated to his ex-sweetheart. A happy ending ensues when his lost love reappears on the occasion of "Broken Melody"'s London debut. The film was one of several made in Australia by former silent-movie leading man Lloyd Hughes after his Hollywood career petered out.
