Sunshine Shangrila

There's nothing better for declaring that your production is second-rate than choosing as host not starlet Arlene Dahl herself, but her almost anonymous body double.

This is a capsule of so much early 1960s stuff, including Tikis (Polynesia in Mexico?) at about the ten-minute mark. Some splendid bikini cheesecake as well.

In the end, the weirdest and saddest thing here is that once upon a time Mexico was seen as idyllic, rather than plagued by drugs and violence.

I spent 3½ years in Shangri-La and they paid me!

Sadly, there weren't any girls only 3500 guys.

The parts of Mexico I was in less than a decade ago were very clean and safe. I understand a lot of border towns can have issues, but if you're in the Yucatan penninsula, espeically near the coast, odds you're going to be just fine.

I saw no drugs or violence at all!
