From a very recent episode of "Reaper", scenes shot in Vancouver's Waldorf Hotel's Polynesian Room:

Hey Twitch, Thanks for posting this! I did not see this post until now but that Bar in the rear as actually the bar we made and had at the Vancouver store, Funhauser Decor, for a while!

We often had stock at Funhauser and they would rent it out for movies or different T.V. Shows. Guess this was one I forgot about! It sure is real cool to see the downstairs Polynesian Room looking busy and open!! Too bad it wasn't like that in reality! They even had the palm trees pulled out with the net lighting wrapped around them. Great stuff!! It sure is cool to see our stuff in a great old Tiki establishment like the Waldorf Hotel!!

Here's a close up of our bar just before delivery:



Here a shot of the bar, along with a matching wall shelf I did, on display at Funhauser Decor in Vancouver's China Town:



Mahalo, TabooDan

I was flipping through channels and saw tikis on a smut channel. It was an episode of "Co-Ed Confidential" called "Spring Break". It looked like somewhere in Ft. Lauderdale.

On It's The Gary Shandling Show, Gary goes to an amusement park with a haunted tiki hut in the background, not a bad reference for the late 80's when the tiki was an afterthought.

Don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet, but one of the local bars on Two and a Half Men has a great Tiki in the corner. It's the episode with the all girl volleyball team in the bar with Charlie and Allen.

Somebody just posted the following screencap to the Name That Film pool on Flickr. I have no idea what it's from, but when I find out, I'll come back and update this post.




This is from the Esther William's film, "Neptune's Daughter".

Hate to admit I'm watching "Into the Blue 2" but less then 10 minutes in there's a nice 3 foot tiki statue on the table outside their apartment. Suddenly I'm watching more intently

I don't know if it's been mentioned, but a good 50s film called 'Pearl of the South Pacific' starring Virginia Mayo has several large tikis--they are even part of the plot because the tribal leader prays to them several times. Check it out.







Here are some more images from the promotional catalog for the movie. These would have been color lobby-cards and glossy photos you could order if you were a theater-owner or newspaperman in 1955.

...As on sale at oldies.com, etc. Trivia note: the boat used in this movie is TV's ADVENTURES IN PARADISE's schooner, the Leaky Tiki.

I started a thread in Beyond Tiki which touches on movies like this (you know, retro-tropical-tikiesque weirdo stuff) at oldies.com (not the only source of course):

I tried to find this elsewhere, sorry for missing it if it appears somewhere else.

There is a scene from a 2009 Simpsons episode where Moe slights the fun time at Tiki bars compared to his establishment and the bartenders hang their heads in disappointment.

The Bounty (1984) has everything TC members could want: spectacular Tahitian setting, a great dance scene featuring beautiful half-nude native girls, grass huts, tribal tattoos and one Tiki! Despite the low Tiki count, The Bounty really is a seminal film for this genre; I surprised it wasn't mentioned on this thread earlier. It did pop up on a different thread where someone pointed out that the story contributed to the entire Polynesian Pop idea of escaping to a sensual tropical paradise. See it soon! Chuck (PS the Tiki appears briefly towards the end of their time on the island; the body of the deceased ship's doctor is discovered behind it.)

Tiki made an appearance in "Lords Of Dogtown" (2005). In the "Party in the Surf Ghetto" scene, the Z-Boys are passing around what looks like a Huka pipe and one of them puts it up to the mouth of a large vintage-style wooden Tiki to give it a hit. In the background, all the kids are chanting "Ti-ki! Ti-ki! Ti-ki!"



Would you believe that the Tiki smoking a hookah was deleted from certain versions of the film? I picked up a very inexpensive copy of this DVD somewhere, and they had cleaned up lots of little moments ("blow me" became "balony" for example, it was mostly Jay Adams' lines that were altered) This version was rated PG-13, it did not include commentary by Alva and Peralta and it had a label reading "original theatrical version" It should have had a label printed in large red letters saying "Warning: Butchered Version of Movie!"

The 1968 Disney film "Never a Dull Moment" has Dick van Dyke mistaken for a killer, involved in an art theft.

In one scene at the art museum, he hides in a room called "Gallery of Primitive Arts".

Some of the tikis look pretty familiar.
