I'm a "newbie" to this site and this has become a VERY long thread so apologies if this movie has been mentioned before (which I'm sure it probably has) but "Crime Against Joe" (1956) has some scenes near the beginning supposedly shot in a Tiki bar called "The Pago Pago". Correctly pronounced with an "n" before the "d" too. The movie is not really worth watching all the way through. The story is more than a little far-fetched, involving somnambulism, which must come in a close second only to amnesia as a bad plot device. It does however feature the very talented singer Julie London in the cast.
