An episode of the 60s TV series "The Saint", starring Roger Moore, called "Sibao", and which is supposedly set in Haiti. A lot of the action actually takes place in what looks like a British tiki restaurant:

These Maori Tiki poles have appeared in other British productions like The Avengers and The Cracksman and are likely fro the Elstree Studios prop department:

Nice screen captures BaliHai. Two things stick out for me in that movie, one It was a South Seas movie about a South Seas movie and two Durante's character was an Assistant Director which I used to do for years (now semi retired) Here's a couple of Spanish stills to supplement your captures

Found some tiki ... and Witco ... in the second season of Mannix (1968).

From "A Copy of Murder," which takes place in the fictitious California resort town of Costa Real:







And in the bad guy's office, there's a Barcelona chair, cool driftwood paneling, and two matching Witco pieces:



From "A Pittance of Faith," also in the bad guy's office, what looks like the same two Witco pieces:





So was Witco being typecast as for the "bad guys" in 1968 or what?!

Wow, I dig that sculpture in the last frame! That train (wreck) is a great example of urban archeology thru movies. Though there were several "Tiki trains" out there...





(from DC's great "Tiki Fun and Games" thread)

...this one most definitely looks like the one from the Newport Dunes resort:



Compare the trim and the Ku faces in the front of the wagons. I would peg those figures on the side to be O.A. carvings, but have never seen that particular style from them. Could they be the ones on the last wagon? And the siding looks different...maybe this was a different version of the same model?



Nice close up of Tiki-fondling !

I bet Chris Jepsen could tell us more about Newport Dunes...

Here is a photo of Newport Dunes Resort in 1958
The Tram/Train you pictured Sven would take people from the Restaurant & parking lot
to the beach areas, right down that center road.





Note: The link you have of the "Theme Park Design Drawings" has their facts wrong
as the photo I posted is from the "Newport City Historic Archives" which lists it from 1958
and contradicts the Auction website dates.

Ah, yes...I located those circular structures using Historic Aerials (A great urban archeology tool)

http://www.historicaerials.com/

Looks like they were still there through the 80s.

Not a great image, but the presence of a cabin door-mounted tiki (just behind Walter Matthau's head) looms large in "Ensign Pulver". A worthy watch, as well, for its island & wahine scenes.

When I saw that door panel Tiki peaking out behind that guy, I immediately pegged it to the classic Oceanic Arts carving on the right here in this photo of my collection:



Further image research seemed to confirm this:



..except...the eyes were oddly oval...
And finally it became clear that this was another version of the O.A. wall carving



...which I had not seen before. Anybody has one of those?

As far as I understand, this film will not have this title anymore:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2446629/Rachel-McAdams-gets-beauty-treatment-set-new-film-Deep-Tiki.html

...so I doubt there will be any actual "Tiki" in it, but maybe someone knows more about it. Too bad, would be a nice precedent to have it in a major feature film title.

Well, where did you bring up the fact that it is being shot right now?

I was hoping my update might bring up some current insider info - not a year-old post
