Description by OLDIES.com:
The exotic island of Bali is explored in this 1932 travelogue, with a particular emphasis on the stunning natural physical beauty of the native women. And if the custom happens to be that the women go topless, what can be done, other than keep the cameras rolling? A day in the life of Bali unfolds following the exploits of sisters Tagel and Grio. As Grio prepares for her wedding day, we are treated to a fascinating look at the culture, customs and music of this far-off land. While the tender age of the young ladies makes us uncomfortable today, this is a rare look at one of the guilty pleasures of a bygone era.
BALI - PARADISE ISLE (1930): The nubile charms of the beautiful native maidens of Bali, unadorned by clothing, are explored in this travelogue.
BEAUTY IN BALI (1940): A behind-the scenes look at the Bali Brassiere Manufacturing Company. This color featurette shows vixens of a bygone era modeling lingerie. Inexplicably directed by legendary producer Ben Schwalb, best known for Bowery Boys, Queen Of Outer Space (1958) and The Hypnotic Eye (1960).
Embark on a scenic journey into exotic Bali in this travelogue that follows sisters Tagel and Grio as preparations for Grio's wedding offer a tantalizing glimpse at the local customs and traditions. Meanwhile, as the nubile local girls shed their tops in order to stay cool under the scorching sun.
