Goofs

When Tanamashu is "talking" to Kabuna, he is speaking in English, a language which he wouldn't speak to his God with. However, this could easily be explained as Wednesday, herself, could speak English "fluently," as well as all the other tribal women doing the same. It's also a fact that Tanamashu had heard other dialects of English since he did recognize that Kaboona spoke, out loud, with a "white-man dialect." Also the fact that he had an umbrella over his head almost constantly, and that he recognized a torpedo makes it apparent that, despite the relative uniqueness of the tribe, they have had considerable contact with the rest of the world, making the English talking to Kaboona more understandable.

Okay, I'm looking at this thing through the gauze of nostalgia. I haven't seen it all the way through since that long-ago day in 1966 when I bought a ticket at a local movie theater and watched it.

I remember that I laughed throughout this. Dick Van Dyke has always been a favorite of mine and he was in top-form for this film. Richard Deacon ("The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "Leave It to Beaver" among other things) provides narration. He had an excellent voice.
