8[aloha-donblanding] movie at the Bishop Museum
- Jan 17, 2000William Smith on Maui describes a movie. Was that movie "Hawaii Calls"? The
dust jacket of my old copy of "Stowaways in Paradise" had some promotion for
a movie by that name, starring a now forgotten male Shirley Temple named
Bobby Breen. I know that this movie is extant, but I've never seen it.
Don Blanding invented throwing leis into the water off Diamond Head? I very
vividly remember doing this in the summer of 1941, watching my favorite lei -
of green bud-like flowers - sink into the water and feeling very sad. (But I
did return to Hawai'i.)
If there was a band playing Aloha 'Oe I don't remember it. But I was two
years and three months old.
