Quiet Village,

Nice find on those Tikis from the Hawaiians. They look almost museum quality.

Thanks Cajun. Here is another one I didnt see mentioned: 1956, The Proud and The Profane. The movie setting is New Caledonia. I wonder if these Tiki's are correct for NC.

The large Tiki looks like these tree fern tikis that were carved in the New Hebrides Islands, located about 250 miles northwest of New Caledonia.

One of my favorite South Seas movie images from a lobby card of AWAY ALL BOATS. It captures so well the true spirit of classic Polynesian Pop. George Nader and his wife Julie Adams back in their safe living room, a break from hard training & fighting in the WWII Pacific theater, note the typical souvenirs & trinkets from Hawaii & the South Seas especially the Tiki mugs on the sofa. ---And a new age begins.---

Nice photo Bongo.

That Tiki was used heavily in the film's advertising, as seen in these posters and stills:









A crude knock-off Picasso's famous Tiki.

In The Adams Family when they get kicked out of their house and are staying in a motel you can see a Witco world map hanging behind them as they talk in their hotel room.

*sigh*

even they had one of those maps. not fair

Bird of Paradise: Kino Classics Edition [Blu-ray] (1932)

This movie was recently released on Blu-ray. The quality of the picture for B&W 1932 is excellent. The sound unfortunately is a bit scratchy. Its a great vintage movie of a guy meets a Polynesian girl, falls in love, girl gets thrown in the volcano and they are chased by natives.

Thanks for the news MaukaHale. Now if someone would release the 1951 version of "Birds of Paradise".

That scene was filmed at the Waldorf Hotel in Vancouver a year ago February (while I was staying there). Without having seen the movie it's a little hard to tell from the screen capture which room it is - either the upstairs tiki bar or the basement cabaret (formerly the Polynesian Room). In either case, the neon tikis would be set dressing and not permanent features. They also shot scenes in the upstairs restaurants, which were dressed as the ship's casino.

Nice info Sweet Daddy. Here are more frame captures to help you figure out the exact location. I too think any neon and wacky tikis are from the art department of the film but the beautiful mural and b.g. paintings dont seem to match the formentioned modern tropic and your comments makes sense, I bet the mural (which should be saved at all cost) and other painting are from an exsisting restaurant or bar.


And for fun another tiki (lamp-I have one like this in my bed room from Walmart I believe) in the scene, smaller scale for the little chipmunks. Obvious added set dressing

Okay, I watched Chipwrecked last weekend, and for the dance-off sequence they combined two rooms for different angles. The top picture in the previous post is the downstairs room that used to be a restaurant at one time. The fabulous mural is original (mid 50's). These days it's mostly behind a curtain (for its own protection, I think), which can easily be pulled back if needed.

The second screen grab is the main floor tiki bar (the yellow neon tiki bar sign is set dressing). You can seen one of the inset Leeteg paintings behind the head of the server. The two panels on either side of the Leeteg are set dressing, as is the tiki on the extreme right.

If you're thinking of renting this movie just for the Waldorf scenes, I'd say don't bother - they're very short and don't really give any sense of the place.

Here are a few movie posters from the 1951 remake of Bird of Paradise.

Tiki, PNG shield, busty wahine and a fiery volcano!





And a rather bizarre looking Tiki from Pagan Island.

Pagan Island is available on DVD (if you want it).

The man who carved the sea god for this movie was Lewis Van Dercar he is in the Book of Tiki there is a thread about him if you are interested:
