Though the label is certainly custom, I've got to imagine the jar used for the Exotica mind-control drug in Our Man Flint was an existing item; anybody recognize it?

"It's a simple jar of cold cream...for one's wife"

Alan, been looking for it myself for years. I speculate the figure of the girl is from a hula doll grafted unto the lid of the jar. I agree the label is custin.

I think the top part may be half of a hula dancing girl figure or something like that. A vintage one perhaps, because nowadays, they all have the leis and bikini tops cast into the model.

Then they stuck it on the base and then onto a can.

(?)




EDIT - I see ed-209 already came to that conclusion too :lol

Great topic.

I am surprised the Flint films are not discussed much on this board as he had a few cool gadgets imo.

It looks like it would have been a souvenir picked up someplace.
Yeah, some little ceramic figure, possible a souvenir.

I thought the poses of the hula dancers looked a bit more animated than that of the figure
on the jar and the woman on the jar looks a bit more erotic than a hula dancer. So I went
a Goggling to see what I could find!

Gawd!, I hope this isn't consider ceramic porn....:$
but not much more risque than what's on the prop!?!
:unsure better censor it anyway, even if it is just ceramic........
This one even has a flower by her side like the prop.


Certainly too risque for me to do anymore searching, things there *I* don't want
to see, but you gents may not object!?

Seems there were figures like the one on the prop jar that were 3D ceramic pin-up girls
figurines in the 1950s.

ceramic pin up figurines
and ceramic burlesque pin up figures bring up a few. With some
good Googling one might be lucky enough to find the actual vintage 'girl'!

Guess it would be a moot point to wish you happy hunting!? :)

EDIT: After studying the woman on the jar a bit more, and doing a bit more searching
even though I said I wouldn't, she does look decidedly Hawaiian or other Islander.
Maybe it was a mermaid figurine?



Most of the pin-up girls figurines look too All American Girl, and the hula dancers
look too "happy".
Why doesn't Google just show me the right one so I can move on along!? :lol
