The movie was actually filmed in a remote spot on a private estate (my family's) on the Island of Hawaii. For verification note that the Chiefess is Violet Nathanial. She was a life long member of Haili Church in Hilo which is near where the film was made. Her daughter, well into her 80's and remembering few things always remembered the only line her mother had in the film: AHHHH.
Other members of the cast - local extras - were also from Haili Church and generally from the Brown family (Violet Nathanial was a Brown before she married)
The filming location is on a large estate outside of Hilo that remains, more than 50 years later, with the same family and has since been used for one of Hawaii 50 episodes.
