As a homeowner on Salt Cay, Turks and Caicos, this movie is very special. Bahama Passage was filmed on Salt Cay and Grand Turk. It shows, for those of us who missed those days, what our island looked like. The White House..home of Adrian, is still standing. The office, where Moreno gets slapped around by Leo G. Carroll just fell down in Hurricane Frances. Some of the rooms in the movie still exist in the White House, and frankly, haven't changed a bit. I am very much interested in doing a history article on the filming of Bahama Passage--one of my sources for the story was only about 8 years old at the time, so her history is a little thin in spots..but she lived in the White House and remembers many things quite well. The content of the story, as in the book Dildo Cay, is somewhat thin. But I can look at Sterling Hayden and Madeline Carrol all day. You can obtain a VHS print of the movie on Ebay if you keep searching under Bahama Passage..that is how I got mine. I would appreciate any information anyone might have on the filming of this movie so my history is correct.
