Storyline

The intertwined lives of two kindred souls with ambition begins when Captain Whip Hoxworth discovers that Nyuk Tsin has been smuggled aboard as part of cargo on The Carthaginian, which he captains, a cargo supposed to consist of only male Chinese workers bound for Hawaii. Nyuk Tsin was kidnapped from her Haaka village to be sold to a Honolulu brothel. She is spared when Mun Ki claims she is his wife, and Hoxworth goes along with his wife's suggestion that they can work in the Hoxworth household as domestic servants. Nyuk Tsin becomes known to all as Wu Chow's Auntie (Aunt of Five Continents) when her five sons are named after continents (with Mun Ki's wife in China regarded as their official mother). Whip founds an empire in pineapples, using Japanese laborers, after smuggling his first seed crop from French Guiana as Wu Chow's Auntie grows a family business in Honolulu around her sons.

Great movie - wish there were a DVD
4 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I happened to be living in Hawaii when this was released (along with *Patton*) It was beautifully shot and the character portrayals were wonderful.

Based somewhat on historical facts, Heston is the hard-bitten adventurer/entrepreneur responsible for bringing pineapples to the islands.

As others have pointed out, the portrayal of the Asian immigration and subsequent influence in the islands is, if not accurate, certainly believable, given the Asian makeup of the island population, today.

All of the performances are strong, revolving around Heston as the central 'motivator'. The camera work brings the beauty of Hawaii right up to your face. Finally, the fire is accurate - Honolulu suffered more than one huge fire in it's early days.

I would very much like to see this out in DVD.
