Tiko and the Shark [1963 - Al Kauwe, Marlene Among - sepia-toned - 107 minutes] Filmed in French Polynesia with a Hawaiian cast, the story revolves around the adventures and romances of a young Polynesian boy as he grows up. As a child he raises and trains a baby shark as a pet, which he shares with his island playmate Diana. After a decade the three are reunited, but the world has changed: Tiko and Diana have become adults; the shark has become a dangerous man-eater; and civilization has encroached on the tropical island.
Beyond the Reef Sharkboy of Bora Bora [1980 - Dayton Ka'Ne, Maren Jensen, Keahi Farden, Kathleen Swan, Jason Robards - color - 87 minutes] This is the story of a boy who befriends and speaks to the great spirit that lives inside an infant shark, which becomes his protector, and the native girl who is his childhood love. After ten years in America the girl returns, but things have changed. When money-hungry prospectors seek to pillage Bora Bora's black pearl beds, the young boy has no choice but to unleash the fury of his bloodthirsty pet on those who seek to destroy his homeland. Beautifully filmed on the island of Bora Bora with breathtaking underwater scenes and topless (but tasteful) Tahitian dancers.
