3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the most outstanding films produced by M-G-M during the late 1920s and 1930s were directed by the colorful W.S. ("Woody") Van Dyke: The Thin Man (and its first sequels), Trader Horn, San Francisco, Rose-Marie, Tarzan, the Ape Man, Marie Antoinette, and White Shadows in the South Seas, among many others. On White Shadows Van Dyke spent four months in 1927-1928 filming in Tahiti, first in collaboration with the noted documentarian Robert Flaherty and then as the sole director. During this period he kept a journal, which he dispatched on the monthly mail boat to the U.S. The journal has never been published and possibly never seen by anyone except its writer and the recipient in Hollywood until recently, when it was discovered in an old steamer trunk
