Happy memories of film-making on Mull
Sir, A recent Mull Lines article evoked some very happy memories.
I can vividly remember as a 12-yearold boy, the excitement the filming of the movie I Know Where I Am Go- ing generated for me and for many others in 1945. More particularly for me because my aunt, the late Mrs Helen D T McKenzie, nee MacLean, known locally as Daisy, was an ‘extra’ during the filming of some of the wet weather scenes.
I remember being told at the time that Daisy doubled for Miss Wendy Hillier who played the Joan Webster part.
I noted with interest that Roger Livesey, the leading male star, never set foot on Mull and I am wondering if likewise Miss Hillier also didn’t appear on the island during filming.
Incidentally, Daisy was the youngest daughter of Captain Alexander MacLean who skippered a number of MacBraynes vessels during the 1920s and I am his eldest grandson.
