Hawaii: A Filmography

under construction, please pardon the dust It is truly amazing that in an era where memories from the past could only be saved in one’s mind or notebook and not on a hard disc or some other technological device, Mark Twain often vividly looked back at the islands he called, “the loveliest fleet of islands that lies anchored in any ocean.” His are among my favorite stories written about the islands and some of the funniest to come from the pen of a haole (white foreigner) writer.

It is truly amazing that in an era where memories from the past could only be saved in one’s mind or notebook and not on a hard disc or some other technological device, Mark Twain often vividly looked back at the islands he called, “the loveliest fleet of islands that lies anchored in any ocean.” His are among my favorite stories written about the islands and some of the funniest to come from the pen of a haole (white foreigner) writer.

The native language is soft and liquid and flexible and in every way efficient and satisfactory—till you get mad; then there you are; there isn’t anything in it to swear with. Good judges all say it is the best Sunday language there is. But then all the other six days in the week it just hangs idle on your hands; it isn’t any good for business and you can’t work a telephone with it. Many a time the attention of the missionaries has been called to this defect, and they are always promising they are going to fix it; but no, they go fooling along and fooling along and nothing is done.

The missionaries braved a thousand privations to come and make them permanently miserable by telling them how beautiful and how blissful a place heaven is and how nearly impossible it is to get there.

but I digress….

Since Edison photographers passed through Honolulu in 1898 and shot the first motion pictures here, the islands of Hawaii have hosted thousands of productions.  The most geographically isolated land mass on the planet, Hawaii is home to11 of the world’s 13 climatic zones which translates to the diverse looks of Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and Pacifica.
