Walk into Paradise DVD

Available to buy from PNGAA – see below

The Committee of the PNGAA is proud to announce the release of the DVD Walk into Paradise, the classic 1950s feature film, directed by Lee Robinson and starring Chips Rafferty, Francoise Christophe, Pierre Cressoy and
our own Fred Kaad, OBE.

This, in reality, is a collector’s edition of a unique film which showcases fabulous scenery and an authentic sing-sing with thousands of fantastically adorned tribesmen and women. We will most likely never see cinematography of Carl Kayser’s calibre and scope again.

Included as “Special Features” are –

  • “Behind the Scenes Location Footage” filmed by Rhonda Grogan who was a member of the film crew;Walk into Paradise

  • a filmed interview with Fred Kaad, OBE, one of our Patrons and former District Commissioner, who was both the Administration Liaison Officer and a supporting actor in the film;

  • a photo gallery of wonderful black and white photos taken on location which capture the essence of life far from the studio lots of Hollywood and are full of humour, warmth, camaraderie and whimsy;

  • the original trailer – sensational and breathtaking, it is a timepiece in itself!

The attention to detail of the production and design has been paramount and it is hoped that the DVD will look both classic and timeless and will reflect the ethos of the colonial fifties when adventurers confronted one of the most dramatic and magnificent cultures on earth.
