It's the third section of Mitchner's "Hawaii" book, which deals with ALL the cultures (Polynesian, New Englanders, Chinese and Japanese) who eventually created the "Golden Men" - the modern Hawaiians.
In the case of THE HAWAIIANS, it is amusing to listen to this film with the Spanish track turned up. The actors on screen are speaking a combination of languages, and certainly Charlton Heston and Geraldine Chaplin do not sound like they're from the same country, and by the way has anyone ever been able to figure out what country John Philip Law is from? (I know it's some angelic space like Venus.) Heston must have felt a sense of deja vu for his role, that of the autocratic owner of a pineapple plantation, is markedly similar to the part he played in the superior NAKED JUNGLE of 1954 with Eleanor Parker as the mail order bride, and an army of red killer ants besides. Heston is supposed to be playing the grandson of Richard Harris (in the first HAWAII), and Chaplin is sort of a princess type who intermarries with the Hoxworth clan and suffers a severe nervous breakdown when exposed to Heston's domineering ways. You can tell a lot about a character when his name is "WHIP"!
The music is by Henry Mancini in his best THORN BIRDS mode with plenty of lush, melodic themes and a hint of native percussion.
Whip goes head to head with the incredibly evil Alec McCowen. If you like your Charlie Chan movies you will be thrilled to see Son #1 (Keye Luke) and Son #2 (the luscious Victor Sen Yung) both in the same picture! And if you press the right button you can hear them both speaking heavy Spanish.
If the link doesn't work just google Turner Classic Movies. Once there search for The Hawaiians.
Enjoy! I sure will.
