Paradise, Hawaiian Style is a 1966 musical comedy starring Elvis Presley as Rick Richards, a helicopter pilot looking to make his mark in the Aloha State. Richards (Presley) is on the outs with the rest of the industry, blacklisted from the major airlines over his womanizing ways. Along with his longtime buddy, Danny Kohana (James Shigeta), Rick pursues his dream to set up a charter helicopter service on the islands. Along the way, he sings songs, takes big chances, and drums up business from the local resorts. But Rick is always up to his old tricks; one of his common business practices, charming a different girl on every island, threatens to be his undoing. When Danny goes missing, Rick, already in hot water, may risk his career to save him. The third and final film that Presley shot in Hawaii, Paradise, Hawaiian Style is filled with the lush scenery for which the state is famous.
