“The Volcano Kilauea” – 1918 Rare Silent Movie Surfaces

This original 1918 film, The Volcano Kilauea, is a version updated through 1924.  Filmed using the Prisma Process, this was the first Hawaii film produced in color on the Islands.

The Volcano

No audio as words/lines were inserted; thus, a silent film. Rare film documented as being ‘lost’.

  1. Great video…Quite remarkable for its time (early 1920s).
