Was there really such a person as Hilo Hattie? Well, sort of. Clarissa Haili (1901-1979) was a comic singer, one of whose songs in the 1940’s was called “When Hilo Hattie Does the Hula Hop.” She also appeared as Waihila, a flower seller, in a 3-minute scene near the beginning of the 1961 movie “Blue Hawaii” with Elvis Presley. A clothing factory on the Big Island, named after the character Hilo Hattie, was bought in the 1960’s by Jim Romig, a businessman from Washington state. He turned it into the company that exists today.
