Wally Boag,the voice of Jose in the Enchanted Tiki Room, passed away last Friday (June 3, 2011).
He does not have a star on the HWOF but he does have a window on Main Street in Disneyland
. And that group is a lot more elite than the HWOF.

Sven, just HAD to share this one. Was reading liner notes from CD reissues of Herb Alpert today and found this nugget from none other than Josh Kun professor of English at UC Riverside and author of Audiotopia who has written articles for NY Times, LA Times, and Village Voice:

talking about Herb's place in Pop culture history in relation to the impact of his music versus the culture at the time of its release:
"...the music's playful evocation of cultural and international difference (a closer-to-home version of the exotica boom's tiki fantasies in the '50s), offered an escape from picket lines, police violence and protests..."

While not Tiki per se, obviously the only legit extension of the Tiki ethos.

Otto, What is the time line on Herb Alpert's era of influence, 1966 to mid 1970s?

From the release of Lonely Bull as a top ten hit single in 1962, to "Casino Royale" in 1967, to #1 hit "This Guy's in Love with You".
to the demise of TJB in 1971
He continued with psuedo TJB groups for a few years though, so, yes, through to the mid 70s.

over 72 million records sold.

Most frustrating thread I ever read. 99% of the picts don't show which leaves one out in the cold for 90% of the discussion. Probably good that this thread is old, I would of been a pain contributing to it. Simply just go to this link that John-0 hinted about for hall of fame stars in South Seas films or what we call Beach of Fame, I think I'll throw on some star fish on this page. One will find a lot of A-listers there as well as many legends. http://www.southseascinema.org/beachoffame.html

Yes I see the images now, must have been on my smart phone at the time with limited data transfer. Anyway and as I expected now seeing the picts (I’m an image guy) this thread went from frustrating to fascinating. Too old to comment on and it probably not PC to write on my PC of posts way in the past but I love to at least comment on a hand full of items found throughout this thread:

Agreed Big Brother on European film posters and will add more today on:
http://www.southseascinema.org/images.html on bottom of page. Check it out later today.

Don’t forget Jim Backus was also Mr. Magoo.


Nice catch on the Godzilla star Chuck Tatum. I think I just posted recently that I fulfilled a bucket list and was chased by Godzilla in Waikiki couple of weeks ago. Screw the bulls run in Spain, that’s for babies wearing pink panties. Being chased by a 300ft kaiju is waaay better. Yes, in the latest Godzilla he or she makes a stop in the Hawaiian islands. Can’t wait to see it and if I made the final cut. The Japanese had a big thing with Nuclear tests in the Pacific and the creation of kaiju monsters out of these tests was huge in their mid-century film history. Maybe not an American thing but we did love those films as much as our own mid-century UFO saucer films only difference was our sci-fis did not have tiki their’s did. Besides the Moai in MOTHRA that was already pointed out see: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=302&forum=1&start=420 and one more on the next page. One of my first posts on TC.

Bela Lugosi was in 3 South Seas films and one serial, none as Dracula. Here he is at small luau in BELA LUGOSI MEETS THE BROOKLYN GORILLA


Liberace Hawaiian Special


Nice images (now that I can see them) from Jonpaul, John-O, DC and others

Most of my above comments were of a “South Seas” and a foreign nature not of true mid-century tiki American pop style so there is no need to republish BOT Big Brother to add a chapter.

Lastly we all know the decline of tiki in the 70s and 80s and yes there was a decline in the “South Seas” film genre because of the huge upswing in the use of TV sets in America’s living rooms. But film did continue in the 80s. Here is a list of “South Seas” films of note during that period.

ALOHA SUMMER (1988) SAM GOLDWYN JR w Chris Makepeace:

BEYOND THE REEF (1981) UNIVERSAL a Dino DeLaurentiis film:

BLACK WIDOW (1986) 20TH CENTURY-FOX here w Theresa Russell & tikis:

BLUE LAGOON (1980) COLUMBIA
BOUNTY, THE (1984) ORION
DEMON OF PARADISE (1987) WARNER a “B’ movie filmed in the Philippines with probably the film with the most tikis ever:

FINAL COUNTDOWN (1980) UNITED ARTISTS
HAWAIIAN DREAM (1987) FUJI STUDIOS (Japan)
LAST FLIGHT OF NOAH'S ARK, THE (1980) DISNEY
NATE AND HAYES (1983) PARAMOUNT w Tommy Lee Jones & lots of natives:

NORTH SHORE (1987) UNIVERSAL
OTHERSIDE OF PARADISE (1992) BBC/SOUTH PACIFIC FILMS
SKY PIRATES (1985) JOHN LAMOND PICS. (Australian)
THROW MAMA FROM THE TRAIN (1988) ORION here Danny DeVito follows Kate Mulgrew through hula dancers:

WHEN TIME RAN OUT (1980) IRWIN ALLEN/WARNER BROTHERS a film w Paul Newman and many others.

*1980s was also a huge decade for the New Zealand film industry with lease a dozen good films centered on Polynesian cultures.
**Maybe not films of note but “tity” movie producer Andy Sedaris did a series of films in Hawaii during the 80s but the sexy wahines were mostly Playboy and Penthouse alum.

Popular thought on TC about this “South Seas” films was that this genre died off when Pearl Harbor was attached, not true, although the 30s and early 40s produced classic South Seas cinema the genre continued during the war and post war, until today. Yes the classic “South Seas” stories and island settings have went into a decline and also a devolution like tiki, but some good films still pop occasionally like THE PIANO or WHALE RIDER. Also “South Seas” genre is not limited to features, it’s all entertainment mass media of motion film, video or newer digital formats. For example in the 70s, like TV in general, the popularity of “South Seas” TV was at it‘s heyday with 9 series of note set in the Pacific, 14 special “South Seas” episodes from hit TV series and 20 “South Seas” TV-movies or mini-series. Like mid century Polynesian Pop western tiki culture the "South Seas" genre lives on amongst fakes and want-a-bees or by those producers who just don't get what the original was really about.

Thanks for posting Black Widow, I was a huge Teresa Russell fan in the 80's. When she gets to Hawaii in that film the guy she marries has a very cool house. It's also always fun to see James Hong.



He should have a star.

Agreed Hong was in tons of good films, mostly playing the same Chinese immigrant character. Most people don't know he's from Minnesota. Got to meet him a couple times. He still looks 60 after the last 40 years. Should of asked him what he was drinking. Maybe his star should be that kung fu throwing star .
