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).
