BLUE HAWAII (1961)
This hip-swiveling musical features Elvis Presley as Chadwick Gates, a tour guide and Great Southern Hawaiian Fruit Company’s reluctant heir apparent. He memorably sings Ke Kali Nei Au (The Hawaiian Wedding Song) at Kauai’s now shuttered Coco Palms Resort. Some Blue Hawaii scenes were filmed at the Kaiser Hawaiian Village Hotel in Waikiki (now a very different Hilton Hawaiian Village), Hanauma Bay and in central Oahu’s then-vast pineapple fields.
