– Narrator
Signed on with the wind and the weather, it's not a romantic life, you're a bit of a slave. It's plain hard hazardous work to work with the white collared wave.
– Narrator
...the one single, most exciting thing in this week's world of celluloid was the Government Film Studio's production The Coaster; and I was pleased to see that the audience at the Regent agreed with me, punctuating the film with frequent laughter and spontaneous applause ... the film is made momentous by the superb narration.
