Ah, yes, DEAD HEAT ON A MERRY GO ROUND where cool Colburn says a memorable line as he's describing the apartment his new wife picked out without him, "It's kind of a Wackiki Pop isn't it." Not sure if he was trying to say "Waikiki Pop" or was hinting to his wife that the décor is wacky, ether way, it has been one of my favorite terms. Sounds like a book title I know. Thanks BaliHai for the great screen shots. And thanks, Otto for reviving that movie list from B. Berry. There are some titles that I didn't know about.

Funny or coincidence in class this morning we covered Pacific in films and we shown a few Hollywood film clips, one of Bali Hai in SOUTH PACIFIC and the other weird tiki moai like image in the prequel to RETURN TO THE BLUE LAGOON with the young Brooke Shields. Here's that tiki which is fun to compare with the one Otto posted.

Here are a couple of screensnaps of the Tiki bar scene from "Bachelor in Paradise". It's obviously a standard restaurant set, dressed up with a little bamboo, some tropical flowers, and a couple of Balinese statues, but the drinks look pretty enticing, and there's a good floor show, so I think I'll hang out a while, have another "Scorpion's Kiss" (only two to a customer!), and watch Lana do the 3-sheets-to-the-wind Hula.

I really liked In Search Of The Castaways when I was a kid, so I watched it again a couple years ago, it has no plot and bad acting by Chevalier but it did have tikis!

At the bridge entering the Maori village.


Around the door where they were captives.



And this building in the background.


These must have been a set made at the studio in England where it was filmed. Some cool background and foreground paintings for the movie though.

aloha, tikicoma
