The only thing missing from that photo is "Emma Peel's" catsuit!

Great photo, Kiara, I don't remember seeing that in your folders. Some photos stay with us for a long time until they reveal their purpose to us. That picture of Bob Cummings with the two leopard swimsuit models I used in Tiki Modern had been in my possession for over 30 years, I brought it with me from Germany because it was a cool photo - and he was holding a light meter I used to use.

The Avengers episode that the Elstree Maori Tiki appears in is called "The 50000 Pound Breakfast". You get to see it here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZ0TsA10xns&feature=relmfu

You see it briefly (half of it) at 4:00 minutes and at 8:14 in the background:



Interesting how muted the colors of the Tiki are in your photo. It is my assumption that they put the garish garish colored Tikis into that episode because they wanted to make the show more colorful for the American Market:

"This series was broadcast in the U.S. from January to May 1967. The American prologue of the previous series was rejigged for the colour episodes. It opened with the caption The Avengers In Color (required by ABC for colour series at that time). This was followed by Steed unwrapping the foil from a champagne bottle and Peel shooting the cork away. (Unlike the "chessboard" opening of the previous series, this new prologue was also included in UK broadcasts of the series.)" - Wikipedia

I liked the show better in B&W

The image above is from The Avengers' episode "A Touch of Brimstone" where Emma Peel plays the Queen of Sin... see clip. That episode was considered too risque for American audiences, and did not air in the U.S. in 1966.

The real shame was that "Honey West" was canceled after just one season in 1965 when ABC decided it would be cheaper to import the British series than to continue producing HW.

Too bad, Anne Francis was way more Tiki than Diana Rigg !!

OK, back to Tiki in FILMS...

No tikis in the movie "Argo" but Alan Arkin does mention having had a "mai tai at Trader Vic's". Made me smile.
Cheers

Here is some news on a new movie now in production called "Deep Tiki" from Cameron Crowe
Plot involves:

"A disgraced military weapons consultant who, after being deployed to a dormant base in Hawaii to supervise the launch of a spy satellite, “starts to discover himself and the relationships he left behind against the backdrop of mythical island lore and Cold War-esque diplomacy.” The story involved visions of Hawaiian Gods and a sacrifice being thrown into a volcano.

Funny Skip, I just watched the movie on TCM this morning
the big Hula/Modern dance number at the end was a lot of fun.

Well it looks like you were doing what I did.
Yeah the bandstand wraped in rattan was cool.
Like to watch those old movies at Christmas time.
Happy Turkey day.

Yeah! I just got my own, obviously on left of photo. I was fascinated by the decanter and while I was looking for dark blue glass floats yesterday I found this one (I love the tapa colors). Thanks again Big Bro for the info.


BTW I also picked up those brown little tiki salt & pepper shakers, sorry probably wrong thread but anybody know about them?

While not a TV show or movie, I remember going to the arcades quite a bit as a kid, and coming across a fighting game called World Heroes 2. There was a character named "Mudman" who hailed from Papua New Guinea. He was actually the first "Tiki" anything I ever stumbled across as a kid and I was instantly fascinated with what this was all about.






Below is a link from Youtube of a person playing as Mudman in a game, enjoy my first taste of Tiki!
