Synopsis by Hal Erickson
South Seas Adventure was the 5th in a series of feature-length documentaries designed to show off the wide-screen, three-projector Cinerama Process. Three writers and five directors pooled their talents for this breathtaking guided tour of the exotic South Seas. Much attention is expended upon Hawaii, which in 1958 was on the verge of statehood, a fact repeated over and over in the narration. Also given plenty of screen time are the island nations of Australia and Tonga. The music in South Seas Adventure was provided by Alex North; its narration was spoken by Orson Welles, Shepherd Mencken, Walter Coy and Ted de Corsia.
