Where was "The Guns of Navarone" filmed?


The 1961 film "The Guns of Navarone" was filmed on the Greek island of Rhodes, and studio work took place at Shepperton Studios in England, according to Turner Classic Movies. A 55-foot boat named "Maria" was rented from local fishermen for scenes shot on the Aegean Sea.

Location shooting kept the film's initial two-million-dollar budget on the rise. Certain scenes were shot in areas that could only be accessed by riding a donkey. One-thousand Greek soldiers were hired to play the German army in the film. Battleships were also rented from the Greek Navy for filming shots of the British Navy sailing the Aegean. Anthony Quinn, one of the film's stars, enjoyed filming on the island of Rhodes so much he purchased property there. The government renamed an inlet "Anthony Quinn Bay" in recognition of this fact.
