Return to Paradise explores those films whose plots revolve chiefly around the South Seas and shows how American culture has influenced both the thematic portrayal and content of each film. Similarly, the author presents the ways in which these films have reflected American society, laws and attitudes. Over 600 American films, released between 1908 and the present, are arranged in chronological order in this work. Remakes and films with alternate titles are listed, as well as those films adapted from a published work. A must for the film buff, each entry lists the title, year of release, the releasing company or distributor, the director, screenwriter and major cast credits.
