John-O in your never ending quest to be the King of the Contrarians did you do a search for Worst James Bond movie before your post?

That's the only possible reason you'd pick Diamonds are Forever.



I stand by my original post. Your Blofeld fights on an oil rig , my Blofeld fights in a Volcano.

My reasons are stated
here Boris !! DAF has since surpassed TB for me. DAF is awesome !!

And at least DAF has a Tiki connection. Afer all this is Tiki Central not James Bond Central.

You want another ??

Jill St. John dated Henry Kissinger, who we all know served as Secretary of State under Richard Nixon.



Tricky Dick is the only standing U.S. President to have been photographed at a Tiki bar (Trader Vic's Washingon DC in 1973)...



"Diamonds Are Forever" = Tiki.

OK, let's get this thread back on track with the Oasis theme.

Who can identify the following 2 Film Noirs that have a "Tiki bar" scene...

JMHO...Dr No is my favorite Bond film...I am forever mesmerized by Connery when he is waiting in the bungalow surrounded by bamboo...and love the back-room bar scene with Jack Lord. DAF does epitomize the MCM flavor in that swinging LV (Palm Springs) way.

Love that picture of Robert Mitchum in that bar...nice display of float lamps...wonderful ambiance. Uhhh...waiter...I'll have another...

Just to set the record straight Space Terminal is actually a "Space craft jamming station" Atomic powered!
it was an inaccurate description, I need to watch Dr.No again.

Now Bow before "Jack Lord"

I missed Film Noir trivia? stupid work......

Here are the "Tiki bar" clips...



"Blue Gardenia" is obviously a set but it does have Nat King Cole !!

This is the only Noir that I know of where a Tropical cocktail is integral to the plot.



"Where Danger Lives" however looks to be an actual location.

to further derail this thread - here is one of the worst and strangest Spy movies ever
(as if talking in depth about the THEME of Tiki Oasis would be derailing the thread?)

Weng Weng, aka Agent 00

Oh, thank you for mentioning this, Otto! One of the best-worst movies EVER. Ken Ruzic turned me on to Weng Weng. Darn you, Kinny! You've corrupted my fragile little mind once again!
