Vinyl recording of a radio spot advertisement for HIS MAJESTY O'KEEFE, the 1954 adventure film starring Burt Lancaster in the south pacific. The script plays up the exotic location of the film, using "native drums" as background music with linnes like "cameras invaded secret native compounds, peered at mystic rites, weird ceremonies, wild and primitive maiden dances..." An interesting example of film promotion (and exploitative exoticism.).
