Trivia

Claudio Guzmán and Hal Cooper alternated directing duties during the Honlulu shoot. When Guzmán learned that the actor hired to play the chauffeur of Milton Berle's character was stuck back in L.A., Cooper volunteered and took on the role at the last minute. See more »

Goofs

Apparent Goof: Though the wedding episode and others mention jeannies and djinni cant can't be filmed or photographed normally, the newspaper photo is explained by magical exceptions. The magic viewing machine shows a movie of Jeannie. Jeannie can blink up photos or alter cameras. She must have done this with the news camera. Jeannie tried to get a drivers liscense once so she knows she can blink cameras so they take her photo. It just happens off camera. See more »

Milton Berle's Hawaiian adventure
27 October 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Second Greatest Con Artist in the World" began a trilogy of episodes set in Hawaii, followed weeks later by the others, "Jeannie Goes to Honolulu" and "Battle of Waikiki." Titular con artist Vanderhaven is played by Milton Berle, 'Uncle Miltie' himself, acting very much like BATMAN's Louie the Lilac, demanding to meet Major Nelson. Because Jeannie claims that her pin is the real one that belonged to King Tut himself, worth half a million, Vanderhaven tries to convince her to purchase a piece of real estate covered in diamonds: "why do you think they call this Diamond Head?" What they don't know is that he works as retainer for actual millionaire Vanderhaven (Fred Clark), unwilling to accept a crummy $10,000 in the old skinflint's will. Jeannie learns her lesson and tops his con with one of her own.
