For me, the best film that captures the spirit and the style of mid-century Tiki culture (as in "Tiki Modern) is "I am Cuba", the nightclub scene. The irony is that it takes place in Havana, and not specifically in a Polynesian bar. But really, it says it all. It is THE perfect filmic expression of urban pagan cocktail culture at the end of the 1950s.
