The Pacific Ocean – and Films


By far the largest Ocean in the World – and certainly during the 20th Century it was always looked upon as a far flung paradise full of exotic and beautiful islands – as it is of course. Over the years film-makers have used these location to great effect and we, the film goers have loved it.

Filming The Blue Lagoon 1949  

The Blue Lagoon 1949I have never seen this picture before of the actual filming. The English men seem to prefer decorum as it would be, and dress traditionally in a suit – to be honest so would I

A few years ago my wife and myself boarded a Cruise liner across the Pacific Ocean from Sydney to Los Angeles – and we were lucky enough to call at all these locations.  I also remember that when we were touring the Suva area in Fiji the guide asked if anyone had seen the film His Majesty O Keefe – to which I answered Yes I had – a number of times – and he showed us some of those locations.

I did think that Tahiti was perhaps the most beautiful island.

We must bear in mind though that although we see the exteriors done on location many of the inside scenes are done back in the Film Studio – although I believe in the case of His Majesty O Keefe all filming was done in Fiji
