When Roger Corman needed to travel to shoot a film on location, he would put together a second feature that could be shot at the same location. This film was shot on the same location as Naked Paradise (1957). American International put this on the shelf for a year and a half before using it as part of one of their pre-packaged double features with Night of the Blood Beast (1958). See more »
Although the island is supposedly inhabited by only a small group of sarong-clad women with primitive watercraft, an early scene of an outrigger canoe in the bay shows many power-driven motorboats speeding along in the background near the horizon. See more »
There seems to be general agreement that "She Gods" is woefully deficient in such areas as plot, character, and dialog. Kind words have been said, however, about the colorful Hawaiian scenery. The movie also offers another kind of visual attraction: beefcake. Co-stars Bill Cord and Don Durant spend virtually the entire movie dressed in nothing more than good suntans and micro-mini-sarongs. Unfortunately, these sarongs are worn so high around the waist -- God forbid audiences should get a glimpse of the actors' navels! -- that the actors' physiques sometimes look awkwardly proportioned with too much attention given to their thighs. However, their bare chests look quite good, especially in the close-ups, and these chests are seen so frequently that the actors' nipples soon become something like old friends.
However, one wonders why one brother (Bill Cord) is blond with some hair on his chest while the other (Don Durant) has black hair and virtually no hair on his chest. One might also wonder what directions these actors received for those scenes in which they have to sit cross-legged in those mini-sarongs while still preserving their modesty. Also, note how well-combed and well-oiled their hairstyles are, no matter what the circumstances.
