LIHUE, Hawaii – Actress Mitzi Gaynor is returning to Kauai for the first time since filming "South Pacific" there half a century ago.

The Kauai Visitors Bureau said Thursday that Gaynor will make two appearances in early October.

The first will be at the reopening of the St. Regis Princeville Resort, which is at the same location where the song "Some Enchanted Evening" was performed in the classic musical released in 1958.

Gaynor's second appearance will be "An Afternoon with Mitzi Gaynor" at the Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club, during which the 77-year-old actress will reflect on her career and the filming of the movie, which featured her singing "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair."

Gaynor says Kauai was "undoubtedly the most beautiful setting" she's ever worked in.
