“All corners of New Zealand are picturised: Maori men, and Maidens, Rotorua’s Gorgeous Grandeur, the Streets of Wellington, Bathing Beauties at Lyall Bay, the Kelburn Car, the Romance of Busy Sydney, Cycling in Christchurch, Taranaki’s Oilfields, Dunedin’s Pie Cart, Algy’s Crossword Puzzle, Gorgeous Theatre Scenes and Maori Dances helping to make a FINE COMEDY ROMANCE.”

THE ADVENTURES OF ALGY was written and produced by Australian Beaumont Smith with support from local cameramen. It is a romantic comedy that utilises New Zealandʼs scenic appeal.

“Algy is an Englishman who travels to New Zealand to claim a sheep station he has inherited. He falls in love with a neighbour, Kiwi McGill, then travels to Australia. He runs into Kiwi again, using dances she has learned from her Maori friends in a Sydney revue. When he returns to New Zealand he strikes oil on his farm and he and Kiwi are married.” - Wikipedia; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_Algy; retrieved 22/05/2017.
