Sexy Disneyland, 1961



My collection now has not one, not two, but THREE photos of Tarita, the Tahitian beauty best known as Marlon Brando's ex-wife and his co-star in "Mutiny on the Bounty" (1962). This time, she is found languidly lounging on the fence for Snow White's Wishing Well. Looks like some dad got his wish the day Tarita came to Anaheim! Va-va-vaoom! Here's the vintage publicity blurb:

TAHITIAN BEAUTY…Tarita, 19 year-old feminine lead of "MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY," on her first trip away from her native Island paradise takes in the sights and participates in the fun of the world-famed Disneyland. The gorgeous Polynesian plays opposite Marlon Brando in the spectacular motion picture which is being filmed primarily in and around Tahiti. Aaron Rosenberg has produced the Arcola production with Lew Milestone directing.

As previously posted, Tarita was spotted in Town Square, holding a rather large bouquet of balloons, as most guests do when they visit the park.



And here she is at the Autopia, waving to all her fans!



Huh, that's funny...it doesn't look anyone is around for miles...in ANY of these photos!

What's with the face in the balloon? I assume the Autopia vehicle in the background is just sitting there parked as a prop for the last photo as it looks closed like the park does in the other photos in this set.
