Filmed on location at Port st johns in the Transkei region of South Africa
Having been to the region where Shout at the Devil was filmed,the logistics in Set building (the Battleship) and in getting the crew there must have been a feat in itself. Port st johns is,or at least was,at the time of filming a very inaccesable part of the coast. The set of the Battleship was in the Umsimvubu River between the two cliffs behind the village itself.
