Sex in the South Seas — Cinema & Symposiums

09 Aug

“The Biggest Tiki Party on the Planet”

With a discussion of In the Wake of the Bounty, and other Bounty films, et al.

Beginning today in San Diego

Friday 11:30am-12:30: Sex in South Seas Cinema

Ed Rampell is an L.A.-based full-time freelance writer and author. In this titillating symposium, Rampell will expose everything you ever wanted to know about Sex in South Seas Cinema. The film genre that offers the allure of South Seas sirens, naked nymphs, bronzed gods and goddesses, sensual dance and the first Western-style kiss on the lips.

Definition of the South Seas Cinema Genre:

[T]he element that distinguishes South Seas Cinema is its depiction of paradise on earth.

[T]he silent films “Tabu” and “Moana of the South Seas” as early examples of the genre. He will be discussing all four of the “Mutiny on the Bounty” films in his Friday Tiki Oasis Symposium: the Clark Gable 1935 film, Marlon Brando’s 1962 one, the more recent Mel Gibson 1984 adaptation as well as the lesser known Errol Flynn film “In the Wake of the Bounty.”

No question why Errol’s film qualified for the festival, just look at the “Otahiti” scenes from about 10:45 to 20:15!

Errol Flynn’s Ship Model

06 Aug

To all Flynn aficionados out there, I’m looking for the name of this ship, that was in Errol’s den.  I think it was a Dutch man of war, but I don’t know.  I have seen many ships on the internet and on many ship model makers that are very similar but it isn’t this exact ship.

I also think that this ship model could be one of the smaller models used in Captain Blood and the model dept at Warners could have given this to Flynn as a gift.  They must have copied it from photos of a real ship that had a name to it.

I have a close-up view of this ship but for some reason, I can’t post it in my post here.  I’m looking to have a replica made of this ship for my home office.  Any help in finding this ship or the name would be an awesome help to me.  I’m calling on Gentleman Tim who can find just about anything on Flynn…

Best wishes to you all

Jack Marino
