The stars of Lovers and Luggers - Shirley Ann Richards, Lloyd Hughes and Elaine Hamill - exude glamour.

This Hollywood-style portrait was characteristic of chief cinematographer, George Heath.

Cinesound was consciously striving to create films of visual and dramatic sophistication, and the exotic location of Thursday Island for Lovers and Luggers gave the film cosmopolitan appeal.
