Boring sarong epic shot on backlot with special effects finale

This is a very boring sarong epic, shot not on location, but entirely on back and interior lots. Jon Hall is the native boy who goes away to be educated, returning to petulant Dorothy Lamour. Sort of a poor man's Bird of Paradise. The unremarkable cinematography was nommed for an Oscar but it's the Special Effects that deserved the film's second nod. After being totally bored for the playing time, a volcano and earthquake come along at the finale to set the plot right and wake us up. Very tedious stuff. Tune in if you are a fan of the stars. Otherwise only for insomniacs as a cure.
