If it turns out to be this title and I didn't post a guess, I'll feel like a bigger fool than when you tell me I am 100% wrong. So I've got nothing to lose. lol! Many years ago I spent one of my honeymoons at the Coco Palms Resort Hotel in Hawaii (but not as long ago as 1961), which is what that location "might" be, therefore...

Blue Hawaii (1961)?

On the right track but no.

Right on. South Pacific (1958).



Musicals like South Pacific were a big deal when I was growing up in the 50's. There were many successful musicals from the 50's through the 60's and into the mid 70's when the genre seemed to taper off, at least as big studio investments.

South Pacific had the honor of being the highest-grossing Rodgers and Hammerstein musical film until The Sound of Music was released seven years later. Some people today may find it hard to believe how a huge this movie was, not only in the U.S. but worldwide. It was the top grossing film of the year.

Adapted from the musical South Pacific, as produced on the stage by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, which was based on the novel Tales of the South Pacific by James A. Michener (1947).

Location filming on the Hawaiian island of Kauai began on August 12, 1957 with added backgrounds shot on the Fiji Islands. The controversial scenes where cinematographer Leon Shamroy used lights and filters to change the color of the film for dramatic emphasis are still debated today.

Movie trivia: Doris Day was offered the part of Nellie, but passed; Elizabeth Taylor tested for the same role, but was rejected by Rodgers after she suffered stage fright in her audition. Logan later heard her sing but was unable to persuade Rodgers to change his mind.
