Charles Trego was all of 25 years old when he photographed and directed the Balinese documentary Isle of Paradise. Though the camerawork is uneven, for the most part Trego has intelligently selected his images, which range from Balinese wildlife to the usual titillating shots of undraped native girls. Radio announcer David Ross provides the narration, which for the most part is hardly necessary. The film is enhanced by a superb musical score, though for some reason the composer remains uncredited. Isle of Paradise was road-shown as a "special attraction," in much the same manner as the exploitational anti-drug and anti-syphilis films of the period.
