Watch a behind-the-scenes video below, shot in 1973 during the filming of “Swallows and Amazons (1974)”. The actors and crew relax after lunch on the shore of Derwent Water in the Lake District. Suzanna Hamilton, Kit Seymour, Simon West and Sophie Neville wait for Ronald Fraser, playing Captain Flint, who walks down the jetty and leaves for his houseboat with hair stylist Ronnie Cogan and Make-up Artist Peter Robb-King. Daphne Neville appears at the end. Shot on 16mm film (Bolex).
You can read the whole story by Sophie Neville, who starred as “Titty Walker” in the film, in the second edition of her book “The Making of Swallows and Amazons (1974)“, which you can buy from our Swallows and Amazons shop.
