If you are a fan of Hatari this is a comparable film from 1967.

I am a HUGE fan of Hatari, and the marvelous soundtrack!

That reminded me of another Swahili-titled show from the 60's. Anyone remember the television series Daktari? Here's the intro to the show. I want that Hedley Mattingly outfit!

Yup, actually here's my more comprehensive
post to Jungle-style in 1960's television.


(And Kava Kerwin, could you shrink your giant picture on the previous page?, it generates horizontal scrolling. Thanks)

An earlier part of this thread noted that there were and probably still are wild monkeys living along the Space Coast of Florida, originating in the 1970s from the long-defunct Johnny Weissmuller’s Tropical Wonderland attraction in Titusville. The original Tarzan the Ape Man is also connected with a much older and more successful wild monkey colony in another part of Florida. Its ever expanding population made the news this week on television and in print, with one sighting in Palm Coast, only a few miles from my beach house in Flagler Beach...

This article traces the origin of the Silver Springs monkeys back to the filming of Tarzan movies in the 1930s...

The Wrap March 12, 2010







In yet another part of Florida, Patas monkeys made a daring escape into the wild. According to the Honolulu Zoo web site, these are probably the fastest primates on earth...

Borrowing a line from Bugs Bunny, “Run for the hills folks, or you'll be up to your armpits in monkeys!”

Leopards are Tiki plus they love monkeys !!



Thanks Tom, there's so much to Florida besides the Mai Kai.

I still have the ruins of Tropical Wonderland on my "to do" list.

Here's some cool mid-century Jungle-style album cover imagery I found on this fun website...

















And some "Tiki" too...

JOHN-O, that jungle album imagery is really fine eye-candy.

The Jungle meets the South Seas at Don the Beachcomber's birthday bash for Anita Colby in this Life Magazine article from September 23, 1946...




Here's the rest of the article...

That could be a very significant photo, perhaps it was the exact moment in Pre-Tiki history when Stephen Crane was inspired to go down that same Poly-Pop path thus paving the way for Tiki-style as we know it today.

Oh. Well. Never mind, then. Heard those monkeys were sluts, but I guess I'm cancelling my south Florida vacation plans.

This comes from one of those old 1950s Men's magazines. I am not sure if it belongs here or in the "nudity" thread, but the scene in the corner reminds me of one of the images above.




I was reminded of this by this photo:
