An American missionary and his wife travel to the exotic island kingdom of Hawaii, intent on converting the natives. But the clash between the two cultures is too great and instead of understanding there comes tragedy.

Max von Sydow,
i remember watching this show when it originally aired in Prime time. What a treat to have Julie singing and clowning every week in the tradition of the other great ladies of the variety shows that were so popular then. What a shame these variety shows of the 70`s are not available to buy on DVD or video today. Julie had some wonderful guests on her show including Sammy Davis, Angela Lansbury, Mama Cass, the real Maria Von Trapp, Peggy Lee, Jim Nabors, Henry Mancini and more. I have been lucky enough to obtain a few of these shows but would love to see all of them including the pilot episode in which Julie played herself, Eliza Doolittle and Mary Poppins all at the same time through trick photography. Mary and Eliza were arguing about who introduced Julie to the world through theatre or movies and then all three sang together. Maybe someday we`ll get lucky enough to get to see these shows again.
