Picture Exclusive! Orson Welles Filming on Hvar

Hvar has a long tradition of celebrity visitors. Some rare shots of Orson Welles filming on the island of Hvar in 1967.

The quality of information being sent to the Total Hvar inbox is definitely improving. We received these excellent pictures this morning from the son of one of the cooks onboard while Orson Welles was filming on Hvar in 1967, several of which have not been published before on the web.  

I am reliably informed that Welles filmed The Deep on Hvar in 1967 with the cast including Jeanne Moreau and Croatian actress Olja Kodar. The restaurant in question is the interior of a boat called Aleksa Santic. 

A quality addition to the Hvar archives. Thank you! All photos by Nicolas Tikhomiroff with the exception of the last, which today hangs in Kod Kapetana restaurant, from where Welles directed the movie.
