This is the sequel to the movie Hawaii with Julie Andrews. I saw this just last year on T.V. and it' a movie about the eldest Hale son who comes back to Hawaii after attending college where his grandparents lived. He deals with the Chinese workers and their culture, and becomes one of the first pineapple growers there. This is a good movie about he early lepers, and how they were dumped on Molokai, and left until their dying days there. It's too bad they don't make this for the real Hawaiians to see, after all, people in Spain could care less about Hawaiian history! This movie needs to be formatted for the U.S., where the movie is originally made to begin with. We want a copy of this on DVD too, but can't find it anywhere except here, where it's not only in Spanish, but in a different code, so it can't be played on our DVD players in the United States. What's up with that? If you live in the U.S., don't buy this DVD from this company, it won't play on your DVD player. This is an excellent movie, and we all want to view it too!

I, too, am irritated that the only available copies of "The Hawaiians" are in the Spanish format and can't be played on American machines. I remember seeing this back in the 1970s and loving it. What neither of the other reviews I've read here mention is that it is primarily the story of two young Chinese who are brought to Hawaii to work on Charlton Heston's plantation. They are played (wonderfully) by Tina Chen and a very young Mako. They eventually marry and have five sons. When Mako's character contracts leprosy and is sent to the leper colony on Molokai, his wife follows him there, stays with him and nurses him till he dies, then returns and begins (through clever investment, saving of every penny and a brilliant business sense) to build an empire of her own. When one of her sons responds to one of her suggestions with "I'm sorry - That's impossible," she draws herself up and fiercely spits back "Impossible come back from Molokai!" (A genuine friendship gradually builds between this remarkable woman and Charlon Heston's character - based on mutual respect for each other's ambition and determination.)

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.

Isn't it crazy how you can only get this film on DVD from Spain, and with a Region 2 ratio slapped on it so that unless you've got a multi-region player you won't be able to view any of THE HAWAIIANS? Well boys and girls, remember, this is the sequel to HAWAII, and you'll recall the trouble we had seeing that one in proper form for so many years, and if truth be told the correct roadshow version is still out of print, and the version on DVD is still the same old cut print pretty much, spruced up a little of course.

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.

I was lucky enough to catch The Hawaiians movie on Turner Classic Movies a while back. Since that time I have been trying to buy the english version. After reading everyone's comments I decided to search Turner Classic Movies and POOF I found it at Movies Unlimited. Here is the link:

[...]

If the link doesn't work just google Turner Classic Movies. Once there search for The Hawaiians.

Enjoy! I sure will.

The film is still enjoyable, doesn't seem dated. Other reviewers note the ghosting and quality of image, some saying it should only be viewed on smaller screens, but I found it to be, with the exception of a few short scenes, clear and sharp. Considering that I viewed it on a front projector system using a 12 food diagonal screen, I'd say that only the most critical viewers will object to the picture quality and those who are willing to accept small compromizes in order to add this film to their collections will be well pleased.

The quality of this dvd is terrible. Very hard to get it to start and when it does you cannot use the functions of the player such as fast forward. reverse, ETC. I have purchased hundreds of dvd,s but not like this one.
