South of Tahiti is a 1941 American south seas adventure film directed by George Waggner and starring Brian Donlevy. It helped launch Maria Montez as a pin-up star.[1] She played a leading role; response was such that Universal then cast her in Arabian Nights.[2]


Three pearl hunters wind up stranded on a South Pacific island.



The film was intended to be Montez's first starring vehicle. It was originally known as Captive Wild Woman and was to star Montez, Brian Donlevy, Broderick Crawford and Andy Devine. Then its name was changed to White Savage. Gerald Geraghty and Ainsworth Morgan were originally reported as working on the script.[3]

Henry Wilcoxon was then announced for the role of the main villain.[4] The script was rewritten so his character survived at the end.[5]
