Julie Andrews in 1820s Period Drama Hawaii (1966)

1820s Yale University divinity student Abner Hale (Max von Sydow), a rigid and humorless New England Calvinist missionary, marries the beautiful Jerusha Bromley (Julie Andrews) and takes her to the exotic island kingdom of Hawaii, intent on converting the natives. But the clash between the two cultures is too great and instead of understanding there comes tragedy.

The film is based on the novel of the same name by James A. Michener, on the third chapter, From the Farm of Bitterness, which covers the settlement of the island kingdom by its first American missionaries
