The fifth in a series of Cinerama travelogues---and not a Documentary since the vast majority of the film, aside from the scenery, is comprised of fictional stories. The first one involves an American girl, on a cruise to Hawaii, who makes friends with another American girl who lives in Hawaii. The first girl meets the second girl's family, and the Hawaiian-girl's brother takes an interest in her. The second segment follows the skipper of a sailing vessel taking the route followed by Captain Cook; the next concerns an artist who paints the sights of Tahiti; An American ex-G.I, stationed in New Zealand during World Warr II, returns for a real visit; and the finale is about a group of settlers arriving in the Australian out-back, and the value of the two-way radio.The 120-minute running time includes a 15-minute intermission, as part of the listed running-time.Written by

I see a reviewer in 2005 questioned a missing print and lamented that this hasn't been shown at Pictureville in Bradford, UK. Well, I'm delighted to report that I saw a digital Cinerama print at Pictureville today, so I guess lots of people have worked hard to achieve this in the meantime.
An enjoyable film but not up there with some of the others - seven wonders of the world springs to mind, and the one with USA and Swiss couples on exchange visits...
One thing that seemed odd and striking.... the Australian segment had no aboriginal people shown. Everyone in Australia in 1958 seems to be white!
