A man in a wetsuit is 'hooked' by a woman carrying a fishing rod
A colour image of a man in a wetsuit facing a woman wearing a red sun hat, who is carrying a fishing rod. The man is dressed in a full wetsuit with a scuba diving hood. A large oval divers mask covers most of his face. He appears to have been 'hooked' by the woman, because her fishing line is attached to his head by a giant hook. In the background is a tropical beach setting - a hill-topped sandy beach lies at the edge of a calm blue water bay. This image was shot while filming 'Will the Great Barrier Reef cure Claude Clough?' 1967: This bizarre little film takes the form of a psychiatric session, using the metaphor as a way to explore the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. When people on the street seem to be walking backwards or upside down, Claude Clough (Charles Little) seeks therapy. His psychoanalyst (June Thody) advises him to take a holiday and get back to basics. From the psychoanalyst's couch, Claude's journey begins, with the psychoanalyst playing the roles of flight attendant, beautiful local girl and mermaid. The result is a tourist film with a difference - including stunning footage of the Great Barrier Reef. A lighthearted parody of psychoanalysis with a decidedly 60s feel.
