South Pacific


South Pacific Scene
South Pacific
One of the greatest Broadway hits of all time, the Rogers and Hammerstein musical, South Pacific, recaptured magical moments in spectacular settings which thousands of GIs discovered during the island warfare against Japan. Whether for stark drama, historical reality, or escapist whimsy, Hollywood U.S.A. rules its own domain. Four shiploads of properties transformed the Hawaiian island of Kauai into the location for South Pacific. Nothing was left undone to achieve authenticity. For example: More than 100 cocoa trees were replanted near the beach for the Bali H'ai sequence; 300 plastic plams were actually manufactured in Holllywood and shipped to the tropical island -- just to be sure it looked authentic!
