Pearl of the South Pacific (1955)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0048474/

One of the best Poly-Pop films I've seen. It's got everything (except cocktails): tikis galore, gorgeous wahines, handsome kanes, a giant octopus battle, and Virgina Mayo playing the accordion.

Not sure The Brady Bunch qualifies as being a "film..."
but these are some dapper gents to be sure.

That is an old favorite among these parts!

Mr Bali Hai, great frame capture! I have only seen B&W stills and footage from this movie, do you think it was colorized after?
Definitely among the best and biggest Tikis on film. We have our Peabody Ku here again:



And I love how they used the already built temple set from some other (Indian?) film, a practice quiet common for B-movies then. That's a true Tiki TEMPLE, there.

It was filmed in Technicolor, bigbro. I wish this DVD copy had been mastered in the original aspect ratio. Who knows how many more great tikis got cropped out by the pan-and-scan? Still, a gorgeous film.

A strange looking Tiki from Omoo-Omoo The Shark God (written by Herman Melville).

Coulda sworn I'd posted a couple of screencaps from Omoo-Omoo last year, but apparently not. Here they are:

There was a tiki scene originally in the Pixar movie "The Incredibles", which was later cut. You can see some images from it in the book "Art of the Incredibles". Some additional history about them can be found here.

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=12497&forum=12&14

Here is a bit of concept art from the movie as well. This scene was in the movie, and if you pay attention you can see the massive tikis to the right and left of the table.

I'm a big fan of Lou Romano's art and specifically his concept art for "The Incredibles", there is a whole bunch here.

There is an episode of Bewitched from late in that series run titled "Samantha's Witchcraft Blows a Fuse", where the owner of a Chinese Restaurant, Ah Fung, has invented a new trademark Tiki Cocktail for his restaurant and serves it to Darwood & Samantha. The drink utilizes a rare ingredient, Himalayan Cinnamon, whichx has an ill effect on Samantha!

Hey Cincy,

Cool find, but I think that one belongs in the Tiki on TV thread, this one is for the movies.

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=14293&forum=1&start=90

PS There was an Ah Fongs restaurant chain in LA, including Hollywood.

Thanks Dusty and my apologies-I wasn't aware of that thread.

Just watched the Criterion Collection Robinson Crusoe on Mars and made this screencap:



I'm assuming the Kailua Klub is fictional.
