    Background: While Stavros Niarchos on his luxurious yacht, the "Creole", under British flag, sailed in Vouliagmeni Bay to take onboard personalities of political, economical and artistic world, his brother-in-law Aristotle Onassis arrived aboard his yacht "Christina" at Anavyasos Gulf, at the Gulf of Saronicos, following a which of Sir Winston Churchill to meet Greek Premier Karamanlis. Besides Sir Winston, the other guests of Onassis are the well-known Opera singer Maria Callas and her husband Mr. Menenghini, Lady Churchill and her daughter, Mrs. Duncan Sandys, end some other friends. The two Greek Shipping Magnates' yachts are now cruising around the Aegean Archipelago. Sir Winston is very tired these days and his doesn't come ashore very oftenly. But if he is decided to visit a site he has to be carried by two members of the crew of "Christina", followed always by his bodyguard, a Scotland Yard officer..

    (NOTE- cameraman's comments - (in view of the fact that there was no light we couldn't film Greek Premier's arrival as he arrived at 8.30 p.m. Also we went aboard and tried to get some shots of Sir Winston, but it was impossible, for he was very tired and in bed. We insisted in vain. We might cover the party somewhere else, perhaps in Rhodes; we dispatch anyhow this film for which you decide whether is of any use. Transeast)
