An absolutely glorious return to the past of old Hawaii is presented in this movie.
Every single scene in the movie, The Ride, was done to perfection. I was truly transported to that time in the past in a way that was so believable. It was hard to imagine that these actors were not seasoned, professional, actors. I came to Hawaii in the early 60's and fell in love with the surfing scene and all the stories about the great Duke. This movie brings the passion and love of Hawaii and surfing that Duke had to the screen. There was so much sensitivity given to every part of the story in making it as true to the culture and time as possible. I saw this movie when it first came out and was thrilled to meet some of the actors in the lobby of the theater before the showing. I received an autographed poster at the time and that poster has had a place of honor in our home ever since. My family will not let me take it down.
