The Enchanted Tiki and Luau Weekend at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood was divine. Larry and I attended the Saturday festivities hosted by the American Cinematheque, which included a screening of a 1963 episode of the "Hawaiian Eye" television show starring Robert Conrad, etc.; an open-air luau; a screening of "The Sophisticated Misfit" which is a documentary about one of our fave artists, Shag (aka Josh Agle) and a screening of "His Magesty O'Keefe" (1954) with Burt Lancaster which featured spectacular Fiji Island locations.We decided to forego the luau and suppered at the nearby Miceli's in-between features.

Highlights of the event included King Kukulele and his Friki Tikis, performing in the courtyard along with the Polynesian Paradise dancers. The crowd was huge and beautifully dressed in Island togs.
I love Hollywood.
