Hawaii (1966): Abner Hale, a rigid and humorless New England missionary, marries the beautiful Jerusha Bromley and takes her to the exotic island kingdom of Hawaii, intent on converting the natives.
Directed by George Roy Hill
Hi, I stumbled across the movie and thought it was very good, although it seemed a waste of Julie Andrews talents. She could have had more of a part. I loved the person who played the queen but it was too bad they killed her off since she was the most interesting character. It was unfortunately a sad depiction (although very funny at times) of what happened and seems to be little discussed in American History. I guess Americans have historically good at destroying untouched paradise and native peoples, I am really surprised that in my late 30′s I had never heard of the movie. Did it show what happened to Julie Andrews in the extended uncut version? Is that what you showed? Thanks
I dvr’d Hawaii from my tv Sunday AM at 1:40Am and it said 2:50 minutes but it did’t record the ending as there was an explanation at the beginning about the movie and I think that was part of the minutes. Very disappointing not to see the end of the movie. Couldn’t find anywhere to download it or see it again
Hope you can help on that. We were away for several weeks and because of dvr we could catch up with Masterpiece theatre. No PBS on board ships.
