Sabu,

I have noticed that as well, not just Spanish, but many other European movie posters with a South Seas theme add a Tiki.

Case in point - a South Pacific poster from Belgium with a Tiki.

1987's Back to the Beach starring Frankie and Annette! There are some Tiki totems in a few of the scenes and when they are in Connie Stevens's nightclub they are drinking from Tiki Bob mugs. Not to mention, it's a hilarious movie.

I hit the Long Pork Tiki jackpot the other night in the British horror anthology "Tales That Witness Madness" (1973). In the 4th segment "Luau"..."literary agent Auriol Pageant (Kim Novak) lasciviously courts a new client Kimo (Michael Petrovich), however he shows more interest in her beautiful young daughter Ginny (Mary Tamm). Auriol organises a sumptuous luau for him per the detailed instructions of Kimo's associate Keoki (Leon Lissek). However, it is actually a ceremony to reincarnate Kimo's deceased mother Malia (Zohra Segal), and a requirement is that the flesh of a virgin be consumed."

MrBaliHai, that movie looks FANTASTIC !! Thank you.

Here's another movie from the 1970's that features a enormous Tiki. It stars the late great John Holmes (aka Johnny Wadd).

Unfortunately I don't think the screen caps would be appropriate to post here on TC...



And to be honest, I wish the inclusions on this thread (and also on the televison one) would just reference pre-Tiki Revival content.

Harper (1966) starring Paul Newman. There's a very brief scene (18 seconds) with a glimpse of two tikis outside a building where Newman has gone to visit a lawyer played by Arthur Hill.



The camera tilts down the exterior of a very nondescript building - looks like it could even be a parking garage that was dressed for the movie.



The marquee of the building shows part of a neon sign reading "the MID..."



Newman and Hill exit



They meet Pamela Tiffin



Newman, Tiffin and Robert Wagner get into a waiting limo and drive off.

Anyone recognize this building (or the tikis)? Did it really have these tikis in front of it or were they put there for this movie?

VERY cool! Those are classic Milan Guanko Tikis...but the building - no idea, you might be right that they were put there as props. But if so, WHY?

I was watching this movie this weekend, the building was Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica on the corner of Ocean and Wilshire. It is called Fairmont Miramar now.

Now that Hiltiki pointed it out, that does look like Ocean Ave near Palisades Park.

According to Ben's Eli Scrapbook ad, the Miramar added the tower in 1959:



The cars in JP's slide all look '59 and older, so we can establish that the Gilligan's Tiki was the original Tiki there:



The movie Harper being from 1966 gives it 7 years where lots could have happened to that Tiki to warrant two new ones to appear in its place.



I saw that movie over ten years ago, but I always remember that "used coffee filter" opening sequence
