Noon Sunday is a 1970 action film directed by Terry Bourke about two mercenaries. The film was the first feature produced in Guam.[2]

Production[edit]

Terry Bourke and producer Gordon Mailloux had previously worked on the film Sampan together, which had been a success. They decided to make a second film in Guam, in part to establish local facilities which could be used by Japanese film crews who often used the island to shoot commercials and films. Money was raised from local investors and the Guam Economic Development Authority and Crown International agreed to distribute.[3]

Shooting took two to three months using a combination of local actors and Hollywood talent. Scenes were shot aboard the USS Razorback.[4] with interior scenes shot in Hong Kong and special effects scenes shot in Japan.[5]

Reception[edit]

The film screened all around the world, making $25,000 in Guam, but according to Mailloux, Crown International took all the money.[3]
