Lottie Lyell directed her movie BLUE MOUNTAINS MYSTERY in and around Katoomba’s Carrington Hotel.

Known as Australia’s First International Movie-Star, she moved her production company - at the peak of her career - to Katoomba, to secretly convalesce her Tuberculosis. With her lifetime lover, Raymond Longford, she produced dozens of films - as actress, director, writer, even did her own stunts. 

Alas, Lottie died of the killer TB at the age of 35.
