Tahiti Tale

A good little Republic Pictures programmer. Shot entirely in studios, with plenty of stock shots taken from Republic serials, this rare but tepid film doesn't bring much to this kind of adventure yarn. You have some beautiful gals, South Seas local music from the beginning to the end, a couple of bad guys - including the Republic Studios most prestigious heavy: Roy Barcroft, we saw in so many serials - some romance and enough fist fights to entertain the movie buffs like me who will always purchase these lost features.

John English, the director, is famous to have been William Witney's mate in making his most famous serials. The best ever. Republic made the most fantastic serials in the movie history.

Republic, serials, Roy Barcroft, three words which always remain together in American and B movies lovers' mind.
