Storyline

The fifth in a series of Cinerama travelogues---and not a Documentary since the vast majority of the film, aside from the scenery, is comprised of fictional stories. The first one involves an American girl, on a cruise to Hawaii, who makes friends with another American girl who lives in Hawaii. The first girl meets the second girl's family, and the Hawaiian-girl's brother takes an interest in her. The second segment follows the skipper of a sailing vessel taking the route followed by Captain Cook; the next concerns an artist who paints the sights of Tahiti; An American ex-G.I, stationed in New Zealand during World Warr II, returns for a real visit; and the finale is about a group of settlers arriving in the Australian out-back, and the value of the two-way radio.The 120-minute running time includes a 15-minute intermission, as part of the listed running-time.

Where is the missing print?
30 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was the fifth and last of the original 3 strip Cinerama travelogue films and remarkable in its showing of 'bungee' jumping long before it became known in the west! As with the first four films it is an excellent demonstration of the Cinerama process, only at its best in 3 strip. I hope a copy of this film will be found and shown at the National Museum Of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford, UK, the home of the world's only Cinerama installation with regular performances. 'South Seas Adventure' is the only original title not to have been shown at Bradford where 'This Is Cinerama' is shown on the first Saturday of each month at 1.30pm. Other titles are shown during the annual Bradford Film Festival held in March.
