An Egyptian Theatre Exclusive!

tiki.gif (4682 bytes)

Tiki feature films & clips, vendors, food and music bring the exotic allure of tropical paradises to Hollywood! Films include old-school island musical romance PAGAN LOVE SONG (starring Esther Williams and Howard Keel), hot-blooded Hawaiian soap opera DIAMOND HEAD (with Charlton Heston) and the volcano-singed adventure THE DEVIL AT 4 O'CLOCK (starring Spencer Tracy and Frank Sinatra) -- all of them in sumptuously saturated color. Join us in the Egyptian's Courtyard for a Royal Southern California-style Luau with exotic musical entertainment from King Kukulele and The Friki Tikis and the Polynesian Paradise Dancers, plus vendors and other surprises and special guests on July 25 from 1:00 PM until well after the sun kisses the ocean and disappears beneath the gently lapping surf.

 

Friday, July 24 – 7:30 PM

Tiki Double Feature:

Actress France Nuyen will appear in person to introduce DIAMOND HEAD in between films.

PAGAN LOVE SONG, 1950, Warner Bros., 76 min. Dir. Robert Alton. Half-American, half-Tahitian Mimi (Esther Williams) has lived all her life on the island and is bored with her idyllic lifestyle. Things change when Ohio-born schoolteacher Hap (Howard Keel) arrives to manage his uncle’s plantation, and the two fall in love. Much singing and Tahitian dancing follow, with some unusually gorgeous Technicolor setpieces with swimming superstar Williams, including an hallucinatory daydream where she swims through the clouds. Co-starring Rita Moreno. NOT ON DVD Trailer

DIAMOND HEAD, 1963, Sony Repertory, 107 min. Rich control freak Charlton Heston, a pineapple plantation owner and candidate for senator, doesn’t take it lying down when his independent younger sister (Yvette Mimieux) decides to marry her boyfriend, a local native (James Darren). What most don’t know is that Heston himself is in a relationship with an Eurasian woman (France Nuyen). Darren’s doctor brother (George Chakiris) sees potential tragedy down the road, but won’t admit to himself that he also carries a torch for Mimieux. Respected British director Guy Green (LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA) keeps things intense and the actors on their toes, never letting the interracial and cross-cultural love affairs descend into mere soap opera. Spectacular cinematography of heavenly Hawaiian locations by Sam Leavitt (EXODUS), with one of John Williams’ (STAR WARS, JAWS) earliest scores.

 

Saturday, July 25 – 5:00 PM

Saturday, July 25 – 7:30 PM

THE DEVIL AT 4 O’CLOCK, 1961, Sony Repertory, 126 min. "48 Hours of Terrific Suspense as Nature Goes on a Relentless Rampage of Destruction!" Anyone for an erupting volcano threatening a tropical island’s leper colony orphanage? With only a trio of convicts (Frank Sinatra, Bernie Hamilton, Gregoire Aslan) and a grizzled alcoholic priest (Spencer Tracy) to save the kids? Yes? Then add in a subplot of hard-ass, cynical Sinatra falling in lust/love with beautiful blind native girl Barbara Luna. Great, effective old-time Hollywood storytelling from director Mervyn LeRoy (THE BAD SEED, GYPSY) with superior color cinematography by Joseph Biroc and a terrific score by George Duning. With Kerwin Matthews (7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD) as Tracy’s young priest replacement. "Tracy delivers one of his more colorful portrayals in his hard-drinking cleric who has lost faith in his God, Sinatra's role, first-class…Special effects of Larry Butler and Willis Cook highlight the picture, filmed impressively by Joseph Biroc on the vivid island of Maui..." Variety MORE from the "Scopitone: Carousel of Stars" Archive! Princess Leilani & Alex "Keep Your Eyes On The Hands" April Stevens & Nino Tempo "Land of A Thousand Dances" Princess Leilani & Alex "Smoldering Drums" Joi Lansing "The Web Of Love" All 4 presented in 16mm Dye Transfer Technicolor!!!
