According to a 1987 "Films in Review" article Powell said, "It was a terrible movie. Dwan had no interest in it; and Dana Andrews was drinking at the time. It was really a fiasco! The best thing about it was that it gave the family a great vacation in Acapulco." See more »
An adaption of Herman Melville's semi-autobiography "Typee"
This is an interesting and fun movie. Evidently filmed in the Pacific - the extras appear to be Polynesian. Typical of '50's movies, however, the stars are all white. The use of the native Polynesian language adds an element of realism. The ending is more romantic than Melville's book, but the movie appears to have kept the general feeling of "Typee" from which the story is taken. In all it is movie to enjoy.
