My interest in this film is based upon some expatriate Australians living on Hydra at the time this film was made in 1962. Writer George Johnston, his wife, writer Charmain Clift, and their children Martin, Shane and Jason, spent c.10 years living on the Greek island of Hydra as writers. (Johnston began his novel "My Brother Jack" not long after this time). In fact, the children were paid extras in one scene filmed on Hydra. According to Nadia Wheatley's biography, "The Life and Myth of Charmain Clift" (Flamingo, Sydney 2001, pp.420 & note), "a glimpse is sometimes to be had of a stylish woman in a large-brimmed hat, sitting at a harbour cafe. She is Charmain, acting herself" (pp.699). "In the 'Island of Love' film, Shane and Martin can be seen running down a cobbled lane, followed by Jason and his little friend Ellenitza" (p.699). Much to my misfortune, I have never seen this film, and it appears it is no longer available on video or dvd or in any format! Argh! As I said, my main interest in the film as a whole is a very minor one, yet I'd still love to see where these people lives during a critical time in their lives.
