Thunderbirds 2004.
Not a great flick but, as soon as I saw their house/HQ I knew there had to be tiki. Lots of PNG pieces. A turtle kava bowl. I spotted a tallish blurry tiki shaped thing in the background.
Somebody please post stills.

I just saw MILK...the Sean Penn film about gay political activist Harvey Milk, and there was a tiki (that looked Crazy Al-ish actually) you could plainly see it in a panning shot of one character's apartment window/wall. This prolly happened around the 55 min mark.

Rainbow Island, 1944, Staring Dorthy Lamour, the Sarong Siren!








So, the Rainbow Island has some Tiki?

Who's this guy hanging out?



Some movie cards ...











Here is the movie write up I found on the net.

RAINBOW ISLAND (1944) PARAMOUNT Good cast of Mexican-American actresses playing natives with stranded merchant marines. Dorothy Lamour in sarong and her tongue in cheek. Also starring Eddie Bracken, Olga San Juan, Elena Verdugo and Yvonne De Carlo. Sounds like a South Seas must See. Navy men plane wrecked on an island of thinly clad women. Lagoon scene. Dorothy plays a haole believe it or not who had shipwrecked there earlier and has been taken in by the natives who of course give her sarongs. Costumes by Edith Head. Bad Art Direction, women have classic look but the men? Tikis. Maori and Aztec designs. Luau
feast. Hawaiian & Samoan words. Couples running off.

Anybody seen this one??

DC

I'm pretty sure there are some nods to tiki in Joe VS the Volcano, but I haven't seen in in some time.

It has been, several times, in this thread and in many others.

...or were you just looking for an excuse to show us your castings?...

Hey DC:

I'll have these for Oasis again this year. But that's not the only place to get them...

It's even easier to purchase them now through my etsy store:

http://www.etsy.com/shop/HouseofBuzz

I still ship 1-2 days after payment is received and most US orders arrive in 2-3 days.

Buzzy Out!





Buzzy has some more for sale!

Was watching UHF last night, and when George and Bob go to a bar to drink away there problems, George has a blueberry daiquiri in a bali hai mug. It's not a tiki bar scene per say, but I thought it was a nice touch. I'll dig up a picture of it soon.

I saw this old Disney movie from the '70s 'Castaway Cowboy'

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071288/

one brief tiki scene in the caves.

It was a cute light hearted movie, but I didn't care for the way the Hawai'ian people were portrayed in it.

Found this vintage Japanese Monster Movie art in a book about artist Minamimura Takashi. Not sure which Gamera movie they're from, since the text is entirely in Japanese, but these were done in the 1960s. Pretty sure this is a tiki and not a Buddhist statue:

That monster is Barugon so this must be the movie:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060446/


But I Don't remember the praying tiki in the movie.
Can't wait to check.

"Seven Women From Hell" starring Patricia Owens, Denise Darcel and Cesar Romero. 1961. Shot on Kaua'i.


When the Japanese invade New Guinea in 1942, Grace Ingram (Patricia Owens), an Australian member of a scientific expedition, is put in a women's detention camp. She shares her cell with six other women: Janet Cook (Yvonne Craig), a pregnant American teenager; Ann Van Laer (Sylvia Daneel), a tightlipped but sympathetic German widow; Claire Oudry (Denise Darcel), a French waitress; Mai-Lu Ferguson (Pilar Seurat), a Eurasian nurse; and two other Americans, Mara Shepherd (Margia Dean) and Regan (Evadne Baker).

During a bombing raid, Janet's baby is born dead and the humane Captain Oda (Bob Okazaki) is killed. Sergeant Takahashi (Richard Loo), his sadistic assistant, assumes command of the camp, and a friendly Japanese, Doctor Matsumo (Yuki Shimoda), helps the women escape.

Mara is recaptured and tortured to death, and Claire and Regan are killed by rifle fire. The surviving four encounter a wounded American flyer, Lt. Bill Jackson (John Kerr), who helps them make their way to the beach but dies before they can reach safety. A wealthy planter, Luis Hullman (Cesar Romero), finds the girls, feigns friendship, and then attempts to hand them over to the Japanese. But the women learn of his plan, kill him, and escape by boat to the Allied lines.

THE SPY IN THE GREEN HAT - A "Man from U.N.C.L.E" movie. 1966.

"Hunted nazi scientist Dr Kronen (Ludwig Donath) is recruited by THRUSH agent Louis Strago (Jack Pallance) to put a mastermind scheme into place. They plan to use heavy water to divert the Gulf stream causing Greenland to become a tropical paradise under THRUSH control while other areas fall into colder climates. UNCLE agents Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) are dispatched to stop the plot."

This movie is a visual feast and has a lot of campy fun going for it. It starts with a chase scene through the old Pacific Ocean Park, including the South Seas Island area.



... Plenty of things for the spies to spy on:



... Janet Leigh as the sexy, villainous secretary, Miss Diketon (yes, it's pronounced "Dick-e-ton"), who has a thing for stabbing folks with knives:



... Catfights:




(Note: it is important to get the Sonic Death Ray in the background during the cat-fight)

Jack Palance's character "Strago" lives in an Mad-Scientist meets Mid-Century-Modern lair, complete with bullet planters, tikis and monstera plants:



... and damsels chained to walls



He throws a swingin' luau-au-go-go at his pad to impress another THRUSH scientist:




Ah! So that's what those monkeypod bowls are for.


Note tiki on table


It is also very important to get the Sonic Death Ray in the same frame as the tiki, as it rotates slowly to the beat of a mambo.

Luckily UNCLE agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin put an end to his dastardly luau with the help of the Italian mafia, disguised as guards:



I can't recommend this movie enough.
