Storyline

Promoter William Montague wants to buy the estate owned by the Daceys, Mrs. Dacey and her daughter Ena and son Todd, in order to build a resort hotel. When they turn him down, he produces a couple of distant relatives, Janice and Robert Clayton, and sets about to prove that the estate rightfully belongs to them. The identity of the rightful heirs is thought to be buried in a sunken ship off of the Jamaican shore and the search begins, led by a schooner skipper, Patrick Fairlie, who is in love with Ena.

I was in Jamaica and worked in this movie.
18 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Action scenes in this movie WERE done on location in Jamaica. I know because I was the stand-in for Arlene Dahl and drove Patricia Wymore's Red Singer automobile and for boat scenes Boston Beach which was owned by Errol Flynn was used. Yoou won't see the little pig running around the beach getting in the way while the movie was being made. They also made me up as a jockey for some horse riding scenes. I was the driver racing down the hill during the fire at the mansion. I recall some scenes in the sugar cane fields, too. The movie stars were not in Jamaica for the scene shot there. All were done by stand-ins. Errol Flynn and his Dad and sister hung around occasionally to watch since their property was being used.

Scenes in Jamaica in this movie are authentic .The boat used was owned by a local and name tag was changed for the movie. I wish there was some way I could get copy of this movie, Jamaica Run for my memoirs. I would appreciate any help in that area.
