OK, not exactly Polynesian but definitely in the DNA of 'tiki pop' as the inspiration for Disney's Jungle Cruise.

I watched the restored version of this on Amazon Prime. If you're a Prime member, watch out as there are multiple versions listed including a free-to-watch version and a pay-to-watch version. They seem to be the same movie but I think just different releases.

Here's the link to the version that was free-to-watch with Prime.
