Malta Story

Malta Story is not a film I know at all although I do remember it when it first came out.

In this one Alec Guiness is an RAF Pilot and  Anthony Steel plays his commanding officer.

Also  Alec  Guiness has a serious on screen romance which did not happen much in his film parts he had.

Anthony Steel


Lord and Lady Mountbatten met up with the stars of the film after an Army concert at St. Andrews Barracks in Malta – and enjoyed a chat with Anthony Steel and Muriel Pavlow

Muriel Pavlow

After the filming Muriel Pavlow went back to England in time to celebrate her wedding Anniversary with her husband  Derek Farr. He however, was appearing in a   play  in the West End, so instead he hurried up to the Film Studios at Pinewood and they managed  a quick champagne  luncheon  together.

She had married Derek Farr in 1947 having first met him when filming Quiet Wedding.

Muriel Pavlow

In  1947  melodrama The Shop at Sly Corner,  Muriel Pavlow was cast as the sweet, violin-playing daughter of shady antiques dealer Oskar Homolka.

Derek Farr, who had been Margaret Lockwood’s leading man in Quiet Wedding, was cast as her love interest – to her great delight. “I nearly fainted because he was my pin-up, believe it or not, I thought he was marvellous, he had such wonderful blue eyes. And the first scene I had with him I had to come flying down the stairs and throw myself into his arms and kiss him. And that did it! I married him three months later.”
