John Paul Jones (1959)

Denia has changed since Hollywood arrived here in 1958 to make Samuel Bronson’s first super-production: John Paul Jones, about the founder of the American Navy.

The film was shot in 1958 and caused a second American revolution in this sleepy fishing village, bringing American dollars, Coca Cola and Mia Farrow (daughter of director John Farrow) to a needy population still suffering the post-war syndrome under the Franco Dictatorship.
