Exotica


Some "House of Bamboo"


Starlets


Hawaiian Eye


Hawaii 5-O


Magnum, P.I.


Gilliganís Island


Entrepreneurs


Walt Disney,
Frances Langford and Horace Heidt each have 2 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame but Horace Heidt also has a star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars which is where It would be cool to see a Don The Beachcomber star.

Throwing in some Calypso


And for Big Tiki Dude Iím throwing in these guys -







I know, I know ďThe Ventures arenít surfĒ but Iím also throwing in this guy!



So there you have it. Please allow me a little latitude, there really isnít that much to work with and if you think of anyone Iíve missed that has a star let me know and Iíll add them. I know there are a couple in Las Vegas that I can add.

I had to drive to Newhall to get Robert Conrad.

He's the only one from the show so it goes big.

I like how his star is for film when the majority of his career is in television.

Still, his era is the post-Tiki period, in the same vein than Fantasy Island. Village People-mustached dudes do not appear in MY ideal Tiki world.

That's hilarious, nor would they appear in mine. I think most people here would also agree.

How about Hawaiiannette Funnicello ??

And if we're going to include Surf music icons, then all of her AIP Beach Party pictures should count for something. (Although I know BTD is going to lecture me on the difference between Surf music and Beach music).




And I can't believe Don Ho doesn't have a star.

Ahem, I think the hundreds of people attending this year's Tiki Oasis might beg to differ...



But that discussion is probably best left to a another thread.

This might be stretching things a bit (let me know if it is), but here's a bit of trivia I recently learned (a la Digitiki).

William Holden was responsible for promoting at least one Exotica recording...



As well as being no stranger to the "Mysteries of the Orient"...

And get this, Kermit the Frog has a star (even though the Muppets did go Hawaiian with a talking Moai no less)...



A green felt puppet gets a star and NOT Don Ho ?? !!

That makes me mad.

John-O, you are reaching a little too far there - just like this year's Tiki Oasis is really reaching with their "Tijuana Brass" theme. If so, it would be Warren Barker who'd deserve a star in the Tiki Walk-of-fame, not Bill Holden. And just because your repeated whining about Don Ho, I will repeat what I wrote in "The Sound of Tiki":

"Don Ho is often mentioned in conjunction with Tiki style, a fact which calls for some differentiation. Although Hawaii and Hawaiian tourism were the inspiration for Tiki culture, it was the American mainland where Tiki was turned into an art form. And though Ho clearly is the master of Hawaiian schmaltz, his career did not take off until the second half of the 60s, after the Tiki trend had peaked. Stylistically, Don Ho is to Tiki style what the 70s Elvis is to Rock íní Roll: Part of the whole phenomenon, yet a sign of its end being near."

Now is there a Jimmy Buffet star, so we can start the "Tiki Walk-of-Shame" ?

I think you have to reach a little otherwise this thread's going to end with Boris's original post. One approach might be the identification of any obscure or interesting Tiki-related fact to a well known Walk of Fame Star (It's your call Boris).



How about Eleanor Powell as documented in her Pre-Tiki performances
here?

Watch the first clip and I think you'll agree. It's a definite Hollywood take on Poly-Pop and I understand it's considered to be one of her most iconic performances.

Yeah, that's the first thing I noticed. A real headscratcher. Although some people have more than one star, so maybe he has another for TV. But what has he done in film that merits a star? Nothing comes to mind.

His mother Helen Hayes was juiced up with the nomination committee.

Well he was so close to being "Indiana Jones" and would of been if the Magnum P.I. execs had chosen to ease up on his TV contract.

Any room for the Ratpack here?
