• Short Summary

    The South Seas island of Bora-Bora, where one-time tennis star Alain Gerbot is seen coming aboard our ship.

  • Description

    Titles read: "A Pacific Idyll."

    Bora-Bora, South Sea Island.

    Various shots of this beautiful South Seas Island. Alain Gerbot (sp?), one-time tennis player who sailed across the Atlantic in a small yacht alone and settled in the South Seas, is seen coming aboard a visiting ship (that our cameraman happened to be on) with the mayor of Bora-Bora.

    Visuals cut out at 01:19:35; soundtrack continues for another ten seconds - sounds like traditional South Seas music for dancing.
