A comic scenario on how not to load film in a changing bag, staged on the cliffs at Cresswell, Northumberland, by a cast and production team from the Newcastle & District Amateur Cinematographers (ACA). The location shoot probably took place following a car rally organised by the cine club in 1963 and features scenes on the beach.
This amateur documentary, with commentary and music sound track, records location shoots taking place in July 1963 at Bamburgh beach for the Paramount Pictures film production of ‘Becket’, directed by Peter Glenville. In the early years of their much-publicised love affair, the famous Hollywood star Elizabeth Taylor visits Richard Burton on set. The film was produced by a Newcastle and District Amateur Cinematographers Association (ACA) film unit, with surprisingly close access to Taylor, film production crew including British cinematographer Geoffrey Unsworth, and actors Richard Burton, Peter O’Toole, Edward Woodward and Wilfrid Lawson.
