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.

Trivia

This film was a sequel to the very popular "Hawaii" (1966), using unused sections of James Michener's extremely long best-seller for its plot. Charlton Heston had been asked to star in "Hawaii", but had turned it down (he claimed that the producers were uncertain as to whether he should play the missionary or the sea-captain); he may have regretted this, as the film he did appear in during the same year, "Khartoum", was a flop. However, this sequel was panned by critics and had nothing like the earlier film's success. See more »

History of Hawaii, docudrama
27 September 1998 | by See all my reviews

Out of all of the "Hawaiians" conversions of James Michner's novels, I lke this one best("The Hawaiians"). It has a possible plot of how Hawaii began its Pineapple industry. The Pineapple actually being in the Palm Tree family and what a person is eating is the soft inner pulp of the tree. It is was actually produced in New Guinee and it was a death offense to transport live Pineapple from there.
