Legendary film director John Ford and his equally legendary (and frequent) partner in film John Wayne paired for the final time on this 1963 adventure/comedy filmed almost entirely on Kauai. Look for the picturesque Allerton Estate and Gardens on Kauai’s south shore—in the movie, the governor’s residence on the unfortunately-named fictional island of Haleakaloha. (The estate is now a National Tropical Botanical Garden.) The Wailua River and Waimea Canyon also make scenic cameos. And, really, what’s not to love about a John Wayne flick whose opening credits unspool with the Hawaiian language classic “Pupu A‘o ‘Ewa” (Shells of ‘Ewa)"?
