“A movie with reasonable claims to having something for almost everybody…That the spectacle moves so well, and generally with such efficient and attractive modesty, I think is owing to Tom Gries’s craftsmanship.” – Roger Greenspun, The New York Times

“Crams an enormous amount of narrative into 134 minutes…the land itself becomes the most arresting character – it’s easy to see why generations of people battled for control over this vast paradise.” – Peter Hanson, Every ’70s Movie

Beginning 40 years after the events depicted in Hawaii (1966, also from Twilight Time), The Hawaiians (1970) offers new generations of Hawaiians, Americans, and newly arrived Asians, all dealing with the rapidly changing world of their island paradise. Chief among these are Whip Hoxworth (Charlton Heston), a renegade plantation owner who introduces the pineapple to the island economy and has a complicated personal life; and Nyuk Tsin (Tina Chen) and Mun Ki (Mako), Chinese indentured servants who must face a series of terrible tribulations. Directed by Tom Gries (Will Penny) and gorgeously photographed by Lucien Ballard and Phillip H. Lathrop.
