The James Miehenor novel, which contained enough plot for six movies, will again be filmed. thi> time as "The Ha- viiians." The plot will carry the epic into the 20th century, during the ascendancy of the Japanese and Chinese populations.

Producer Lawrence Turman ("The Tiottiing fireflies or lightning bugs to see in the dark is a childhood summer pastime of long standing. The fireflies' multicolored cold light, besides being one of nature's most beautiful phenomena, serves the insects as a means of attracting a mate in the dark.
