In a bit of tongue-in-cheek, portraits of the founder and leaders of the Dedham Shipping Company are all of Jack Warden (in appropriate period dress). The portrait of Manulani appears to be a similar treatment of Elizabeth Allen, as she would appear if she were Polynesian or hapa. See more »
When Donovan take the kids and Amelilia up the mountain to cut down an "island Christmas tree" they cut down a very pretty and bright green tree and put it in the back of the jeep. When they arrive back in town and pull up in front of Donovan's bar, the tree looks dead and shriveled. See more »
With The Duke and Lee Marvin, I knew that this was going to be a fun movie to watch. No disappointment there. Filled with the splendor of the South Pacific and scored with beautiful music from the islands, it will appeal to any fan of the tropics. Elizabeth Allen is stunning as the leggy Boston blue blood who arrives on the island and gets everyone stirred up. She, along with Wayne, Marvin and Jack Warden make the film funny and appealing. If you want to watch a film that does not use today's hackneyed formula of gratuitous sex, profanity, explosions and car chases, fix yourself a Mai Tai, put on your flowered shirt and watch Donovan's Reef. Aloha.
