While I was getting lost in Waikiki, I stumble upon an alley displaying these posters of old movies.
It is interesting to see how Hawaii is used as one of the main attraction or as a selling point for a movie, a part from the actors themselves of course.
- "Hey, do you want to see an Elvis movie"
- "Nah, I have to do my laundry"
- "It was shoot in Hawaii"
- "I will make the popcorn if you get the sodas"
Call it charm, mystique or just plain exotic; Hawaii has it, and it is something that, I think, no other state has.
When was the last time you saw a movie pimping the fact that it was shoot in Florida or Arkansas?
