Rockford Files....the TV show. Never noticed before, but Rockford has a huge tiki mask in his trailer over the oven in his kitchen.

I watched a classic film the other night that had several scenes in what was called a "chinese restaurant" but appeared to be a polynesian type of place in NYC. I don't know if this restaurant existed or if it was scenery...but it was neat to see eitherway.

The film was The Apartment (1960). It starred Jack Lemon and Shirley McClain (sp?). The whole film was interesting from the perspective of the late 50's/60's era. But, the scenes of Shirley meeting her "lover" in the tiki bar were particularly interesting.

Seen this Monday on the Twilight Zone Marathon, in the 1962 episode "A piano in the house" that, when it plays, lets everyone speak out their true feelings:

The player piano has a small white Maori Tiki mask stuck in the center, and is initially purchased at a curio shop where two more Maori carvings can be seen: By the door when the lead character leaves (a whacky one!) and on a shelf in the back ground.

Does any one have the boxed DVD set and can post screenshots?

Great, man, thank you, made to order! Is there a program/tool to capture DVD stills off my powerbook, or my TV/DVD player? I need to get some "I am Cuba" imagery...
Mahalo!

I made the stills on my pc using VideoLan or VLC-player that you can download here. It's free and plays everything, except for vinylrecords.

Hadn't seen this one mentioned, at least while searching for "Scorsese"...

Was re-watching Martin Scorsese's CASINO last night, and noticed 2 things:
1) Sharon Stone's first appearance seems to possibly be at the Peppermill Lounge, with its fire/water thing right next to her.
2) at one point when they're moving through the casino, they pass by some moai heads and the green neon appears to say AKU AKU (even though that room was at the Stardust).

The end credits indicate the film was shot at the Riviera hotel & casino. Already sent the DVD back to Netflix, or I'd post some screenshots.

Cheers,
Rupe

There is freeware for Mac called - appropriately enough - DVD Capture that lets you do screengrabs from your Apple DVD Player app.

Also VLC PLayer lets you do screen grabs natively, with just a keystroke - and it will play your DVDs as well as avi and all other major video file formats.

Just saw Teenage Diary on Something Weird. It's a rambling short film with a Christian message. A date begins with a young couple discussing Bible verses in his car...Then it's off to the Tiki bar! Several large tikis. Couldn't tell if the restaurant was a real location or a scene. There is a zoom in on a menu that just says "Tiki" on it.

Meanwhile, back at home, the girl's mom and dad are fighting about her date and dress. The dad says he's going out and mom says "You're not going to the Alibi again, not tonight!"

Back at the Tiki bar there is a brief floor show complete with a dancer and flaming torch lighting a pool of fire beneath a large tiki.

I just watched the movie Orgazmo.
It is a comedy from the creators of South Park.

In the final fight the heros girlfriend is tied up next to a fake volcano and two tikis.
