What Changed Charley Farthing? (also known as The Bananas Boat), is a 1974 British comedy film, directed by Sidney Hayers. It was filmed on location in Aguilas, Spain, which filled in for Havana. During filming on a ship in the bay, Lionel Jeffries dove into the water and went for a swim. He had swum several hundred feet from the ship when those on board noticed a motor boat approaching at high speed. As those on deck waved frantically at the boat, trying to warn of Jeffries’ presence in the water, those on the speeding boat thought they were just being friendly and waved back, oblivious to the actor bobbing in the water. They missed running him over by a mere few feet. When "Charley" wrapped, Mr. McClure returned to the U.S. to star in the short lived series "Search", with filming beginning in the summer of 1972.
Roaming sailor Charley Farthing is paid to give safe passage out of revolutionary Cuba to a young woman (Hayley Mills) and her father (Lionel Jeffries).
