Ken G. Hall, Australia's premiere filmmaker of the 1930s, was responsible for the surprisingly elaborate romantic drama Lovers and Luggers. Former Hollywood film favorite Lloyd Hughes plays famed concert pianist Daubenay Carshott (no, really!) who gives up his musical career for the love of the luscious Lorna (Shirley Ann Richards). At Lorna's behest, Carshott heads to Thursday Island and becomes a pearl diver, allowing Hall to indulge in some pretty fancy underwater footage. Therafter, things move at a rapid pace towards a spectacular finale. Lovers and Luggers was freely adapted from a novel by Gurney Slade.
