Just watched The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps and there is a brief Tiki hot tub scene with Eddie Murphy surrounded by Tiki torches, tropical landscaping, and masks on some sort of bamboo fencing. Well done but I did not capture an image and can't find any online

Here's a clip on YouTube, queued to begin at that scene:

I picked up this nice lobby card showing the Tiki in Charlie Chan's Feathered Serpent.



In doing a bit of research on the Charlie Chan movie series, I discovered that Don the Beachcomber (Donn Beach) was hired as a set design consultant for the Charlie Chan film Dangerous Money. (Hollywood notes: Restaurateur "Don the Beachcomber" gave technical advice on the South Sea Islands.)

That explains the look of the Mango Inn Polynesian bar from the movie! Looks a lot like Don's early Waikiki restaurant.

Good find Otto. Here are a couple of screen shots from the link provided by Limbo Lizard (another good find)




And yes DC, I glad you brought up "Dangerous Money" with some great images from the film. Along with "Dangerous" and "Charlie Chan at Treasure Island" these are my favorite Charlie Chan films because of these similar images. Surprisingly South Seas/Tiki images are rare from a character from Hawai'i. Even "Treasure Island takes place in San Francisco (see below).

The very first post in this thread:

Just watched the Criterion Collection Robinson Crusoe on Mars and made this screencap:



I'm assuming the Kailua Klub is fictional.





Saw this flick last night and was tickled that the lost astronaut apparently spent his last night on earth in a tiki bar. I mean, wouldn't we all?

Came here to see if it was a real place; apparently not.
Thanks for the screen grab, Sweet Daddy.

Good eye Tiki Drifter. Hey the other actor with Radcliff is the bad son of Hans Solo in the newest Star Wars-The Force Awakens.

Adding this Dorothy Lamour Aloma of the South Seas photo from ebay

Aloma of the South Seas (1941), starring Dorothy Lamour and Jon Hall.

Supposedly set in the Cook Islands, which unbeknowst to me, is apparently chock-a-block with papier-mache Moais! Pretty tepid pagan love saga filmed on obvious sets with your standard Gods-are-angry-and-require-a-virgin-sacrifice-before-fake-volcano-erupts plot. Lamour and Hall apparently starred in another South Pacific romance called "The Hurricane", which I haven't seen yet, but is supposedly much better.

Here are a few caps. Sorry for the poor quality, but my copy is from a VHS rip.

So, the Rainbow Island has some Tiki?

Who's this guy hanging out?



Some movie cards ...











Here is the movie write up I found on the net.

RAINBOW ISLAND (1944) PARAMOUNT Good cast of Mexican-American actresses playing natives with stranded merchant marines. Dorothy Lamour in sarong and her tongue in cheek. Also starring Eddie Bracken, Olga San Juan, Elena Verdugo and Yvonne De Carlo. Sounds like a South Seas must See. Navy men plane wrecked on an island of thinly clad women. Lagoon scene. Dorothy plays a haole believe it or not who had shipwrecked there earlier and has been taken in by the natives who of course give her sarongs. Costumes by Edith Head. Bad Art Direction, women have classic look but the men? Tikis. Maori and Aztec designs. Luau
feast. Hawaiian & Samoan words. Couples running off.

Anybody seen this one??

DC

Ebay photo - note it looks like "Southern Skies" was an original/alternate title for "White Shadows in the South Seas".

Here's one I know hasn't been mentioned before, because it won't be released until next May: 'Madagascar.' It's DreamWorks next animated feature, which I'm working on now, and it has a very funny Tiki sequence. That sequence hasn't even been animated yet, but I was looking at the layouts, and it's funny as hell.



I need help in identifying the vibraphone music in Marty the zebra's tiki bar scene. I've been trying to figure it out for months. Can anyone help on this?

In the new animated movie "Sing" there is a brief tiki bar scene.
