Movie Details

Most famous for their blockbuster hit singles "Love Will Keep Us Together" and "Do That to Me One More Time," the soft rock team of Captain and Tennille (husband and wife Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille) peaked in popularity from 1975 through 1976; they performed for the likes of Gerald Ford, swept up a massive fanbase and even landed an eponymous musical variety series on ABC from late September 1976 through mid-March 1977. Unfortunately, that program soon folded due to low ratings; subsequent years saw the pair mounting a series of follow-up network specials of varying content. Per its title, the 1978 Captain and Tennille in Hawaii finds the husband-and-wife team on location in the land of the luau, with the express purpose of "finding the real Hawaii." The program, however, consists mainly of the titular duo and guest stars, including Kenny Rogers and David Soul, performing comedy sketches and musical numbers against picturesque Hawaiian backdrops. Songs include: Rogers on "Love Or Something Like It," Soul on "Tomorrow's Child" and Tennille on "Just the Way You Are." ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
