Aloma of the South Seas is a 1941 American romantic adventure drama film directed by Alfred Santell and starring Dorothy Lamour and Jon Hall. The film was shot in Technicolor and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

Aloma of the South Seas is based on the 1925 Broadway play of the same name by LeRoy Clemens and John B. Hymer. It is a remake of the 1926 silent film of the same name.[2] Lamour and Hall were the reigning darlings of south sea island adventures of this era having starred in John Ford's The Hurricane. Aloma of the South Seas fits into the romance adventure canon of which Lamour and Hall excelled at.


Aloma and Prince Tanoa, are promised by the islanders to wed from their childhood, though the two despise each other and fight. Tanoa is sent to the United States for an education and does not return for 15 years after the death of his father. Once crowned, Tanoa's treacherous cousin Revo who has plotted to rule in place of Tanoa since childhood, sees his chance by arming himself and his band with rifles and a light machine gun.



The film was nominated for two Academy Awards:[3]
