Movie Info

In this confused parody, a lovely South Seas island girl travels to England following her father's death and becomes the ward of her cousin. The woman is exotically beautiful and men turn into fools whenever she passes by. But the innocent lass has no idea that she is so lovely and seductive. At one point she poses nude for an artist and nearly starts a riot amongst the normally staid upper-crust gentlemen. In the end, the beautiful native girl marries the son of her kindly cousin who eventually becomes the head of his father's school. Meanwhile his father moves to the girl's native island.

Critic Reviews for Tamahine

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Under Philip Leacock's smooth direction, the picture moves at a brisk clip, with some deft dialogue, and all in the spirit of light, iconoclastic fun.

October 11, 2018 | Full Review…

This film can't decide whether to poke fun at the British education system or send up sex comedies.

October 11, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The bulk of the film remains dull and uninspired.
