“Early movies of Hawaii” follow up, 2012.

Mahalo to Connie Woyciesjes and Uluulu for their responses pertaining to the scenes shot by the “man famous for filming movies”!

Perhaps this was R. K. Bonine as Connie suggests, but i am not sure why he’d be arriving on the Wilhelmina, i assumed he was already here in Hawaii at that time. There are by the way many articles about Bonine taking movies. Here is one which i previously posted from 1915.

From Uluulu, there was the suggestion that maybe the reels labeled “Picturesque Hawaii ca. 1916” at Critical Past are the scenes in question. Look for instance at this short movie put out by the Ford Motor Company dealing with the pineapple and labeled 1916, (which was described in the article).
