south sea island adventure
Eva Gabor... from Green Acres. as Sarna, the island girl, no less. Flashback of Lieutenant Taber (Paul Valentine) crash landing on the south sea island. Picture and sound quality are pretty terrible, but.. public domain. Sarna shows Taber around the island, which has elegant (Thai ?) temples with beautiful gardens and dancers. Pretty elaborate for a south sea island! Seems to have scenes from other, earlier films cut and pasted into it. lazy! It's all very average. Sarna is torn between all her choices for a husband, and spends most of the film trying to decide. Acting is not so good. very stilted conversations. imdb states this was made by Elliot-Shelton Films. couldn't find much on them.. except that one of the producers is Hall Shelton. It's funny that in this one, Gabor seems to have LESS of an accent than she does ten years later in Green Acres. but i digress. This one is mostly interesting for the history of the Gabor sisters in hollywood. Directed by Bud Pollard. He got into films just as the studios were switching to talkies. Love Island was the last project he did, as he died after making the film.
