Abstract:

"Even today, the Marquesas Islands beckon travelers yearning for an exotic and authentic Polynesian experience. Imagine the wonder of 1928 audiences when White shadows in the South Seas took them thousands of miles from home to that remote Eden of rolling waves and palm-fringed beaches. The first of W.S. Van Dyke's famed filmed-on-location adventures (the others: The pagan and Trader Horn) tells a dramatic tale of foreign interlopers -- a booze-sodden doctor and a rapacious pearl trader - who bring destruction to a vibrant Pacific culture. The film features synchronized music and sound effects plus spectacular, Academy Award-winning cinematography that captures a paradise in peril."--Container.
