I want to see this movie, and so do a lot of cinerama film enthusiasts. Seems the prints are lost. If you find one, or your uncle has one in the attic, please let the world know.

Let me know if you find that film. I would also love to see it. I think Don The Beachcomber has a small part in it.

I would love to see that. I would actually make it out to LA just to see it at the dome.

As far as I can tell there are only two Cinerama theaters left in the US. One in Seattle and the pretty famous one in Los Angeles. The LA theater has screened multi-projector Cinerama films recently. Maybe give those guys a buzz and they could point you in the right direction to un-earth this print. You can find a link to them on the other blog I go bananas over

Let me know if you make any progress.

I don't think they did, bigbro. I was fortunate enough to get to see This is Cinerama! at the Seattle Cinerama theater, and it was beyond fantastic. I've been trying to keep an eye on the LA Cinerama, hoping for a similar Cinerama film fest, but I don't think they've done one down here in a few years, which I find surprising. Regardless, my understanding is that the South Seas Cinerama film is lost (hopefully someday someone will stumble across a print), and doesn't even get shown during the Cinerama festivals.

If anyone hears of original Cinerama films being shown at the Arclight, I'd love a heads-up. And naturally, if this particular one shows up somewhere, I REALLY want to hear about it!

I would also like to know if any Cinerama films show at Arclight in the future, as I would be willing to drive to LA to see one.

I have the music score of that film with another great cover.
The LP was issued in 1981 on Citadel Records.

Music by Alex North (who also did "Journey into fear", "A street car named Desire", "Viva Zapata", "Spartacus", "Cleopatra", "Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf"...)

I find it amazing that such a recent film can become "lost".

In fact, the movie is from 1958. And I have another music version of it from Dagored label (2003)

To me 1958 is relatively recent. I think of lost movies as being pre-talkies (1927). Did you know that about 90% of all silent movies have been lost?

I checked the UCLA FIlm Archives and they don't have it. Maybe it really is lost and gone forever. Sad if true.
