THE TELEVISION SHOW - In The Search For Lost Horizons
The Troy Cory Show / Hawaiian Tropic

A TelePlay for a One Hour TV Special:

THIS 2004 CHINA CONCERT TOUR AND TELEVISION SHOW -- will show the fabulous greatness of Ron's ability to put things together, in just one Summer. He'll again be teaching his 14-year-old Daughter, Sterling, the P's and Q's of international trade, and the marketing requirements needed, to run and operate their family owned cosmetic business enterprise. He'll be on stage performing with the HT dancers, and singing a duet or two with Troy and Sterling. "Country Roads", and "You Are My Sunshine," are two of Ron's favorites.
Ron Rice (owner/founder of Hawaiian Tropic) is the perfect example of the "American Dream". Born near Asheville, NC, Rice grew up in a "two-story log cabin" on his family owned mountain. An entrepreneur from the age of five, he sold everything from homemade Christmas wreaths to honey, grapes, apples and apple cider at his roadside stand.Contact: TeleKey International Licensing
Rice remembers coming home from football practice each day and spending every spare minute with his family carrying rocks and mortar to the peak of their mountain to build their father's dream house. Sadly, his parents only lived in the home for one year before the State Transportation Dept. ordered the house torn down to make room for Highway 26. Uprooted, Clyde Rice died a year later at the age of 73. "How hard he worked at his job on that house - had a lasting impression on me," quotes Rice.
After graduating from college, Rice moved first to Myrtle Beach, SC and then to Florida following the sun, working as a teacher and a lifeguard. When Rice created Hawaiian Tropic in a garbage can (right), in his garage, he was earning $4300 per year as a chemistry teacher/football coach at a local high school and a summertime lifeguard. He mixed batches of coconut oil, bananas, aloe avocados and other exotic ingredients and hired a crew of three pre-teens to fill bottles and keep track of the secret recipe. By sampling on the beach and utilizing lifeguard friends and fellow teachers to distribute the product, demand for the product grew throughout the United States.
To increase notoriety and sales, Rice turned to something else he knew well - sports! We sponsored everything you could think of. We were in NASCAR racing for ten years and Paul Newman drove the winning "Hawaiian Tropic Porsche at the 24 Hours of LeMans, France. We were involved in hang-gliding, surfing, skydiving, water-skiing, snow skiing, tennis tournaments and on and on," says Rice. The name Hawaiian Tropic grew to worldwide renown.
Next was the development of the Miss Hawaiian Tropic International Pageant. This annual search for the most beautiful woman in the world is now the second largest pageant in the world. Over 1,500 pageants are run in the US alone and pageants are held in 45 other countries to select the finalists. Miss Hawaiian Tropic International, along with other selected finalists and contestants, travel the globe participating in major media promotions. The team makes appearances at such events as charity functions, sportscar races, concerts, the Cannes Film Festival, music videos, MTV and in major film productions. They meet stars like Burt Reynolds on location for filming, Clint Eastwood at celebrity charity ski tournaments, and Julio Iglesias at concerts an on music video productions. The models also travel to exotic beach locations for the annual Hawaiian Tropic photo shoot. These photos are used for television, major fashion magazines worldwide, billboards and calendars.
Today, Hawaiian Tropic is the second largest suncare manufacturer in the world, with twelve manufacturing plants on five continents, grossing over $200 million per year. The garbage can ( right) used to mix that first batch is silverplated and stands in Rice's living room as a reminder of the "early" days and Rice's tireless effort.
Rice is single with daughter Sterling (left). The Rice's enjoy the "good life," with an 80-foot sailing yacht lovingly named the Princess Sterling, and a $250,000 Lamborghini that was loaned to Ron's buddies, Burt and Hal for the movie "Cannonball Run." Rice's main residence in Daytona Beach is a $5.5 million palatial estate with four pools, a recording studio and a disco. In memory of his Dad, Ron had truck loads of granite brought down from North Carolina to provide the exterior for his home. Clyde Rice would have liked that.

02. Ron Rice Sterling Rice / Featured
Businessman, Ron Rice and his 14 year-old daughter, Sterling. Sterling will head the Hawaiian Tropic performers, to entertain us with their beauty and singing act. The youth, beauty, and energy of these girls are amazing. Millionaire, perfectionist and owner of Hawaiian Tropic, Ron Rice, is appearing on this trip, as himself, and will actually appear on stage to sing a song or two with Troy and personally instruct the girls as to what they should do, or not do.
---- "What an ambitious man he is”, says Josie Cory, publisher of Television International Magazine, “supporting his debutante daughter, and these beauty pageants potentials, teaching them the art of promoting his patented and trademark sun screen products to preserve youth and beauty, as well as health.”


It all begins in Shanghai, where Troy, Ron, Sterling and some of the performers see themselves, purchasing the compass they'll be using to guide us up and down China. As the camera pans and dissolves into the needle pointing due North, it starts to rapidly spin. The next film cut, images the TV screen on the wireless telephone blinking with a film countdown. The next scene pictures Troy and the performers standing center stage in Shanghai, 1988, meeting Jiang Zemin.
---- The big band sound of Ambros Seelos starts playing,“Jeepers Creepers”, and the show begins. Both the compass and the Goodwill Concert Map Book 2004, will guide you to Nine Cities in the Southern Provinces of the People’s Republic of China. Concert shoot dates for the first leg of the tour, begin on JUNE 17th through JUNE 27TH.
---- On the road again”, unscripted interviews by and with 14 year old singer, Sterling Rice, and the shows performers, will tell the realism of traveling in  China. (Optional Settings).
Ron Rice and Josie Cory will head the “On the Road”, 4-person Round-Table Performers Award. Toni Covington and Troy, will be the deciding vote of who will be awarded a featured spot during next show performance. (http://www.chinaexpo2004.com/)
---- On June 28th, as Troy and his million dollar troupe of performers continue South towards Guangzhou, the road to Beijing gets a little hectic for the Brooke Sisters, Sterling, and the beauties from Hawaiian Tropic. They realize Beijing is north, the opposite direction shown on the compass. It’ll take another 7 performances in 7 Southern Cities, before they’ll reach their final Northern destination, the Forbidden City, located in Beijing. (See http://www.chinaexpo2004.com/).


A couple of evenings in Beijing are topped off with the “Beauty From The Forbidden City”. This Forbidden City event features, a mini Miss China, Hawaiian Tropic International Beauty Pageant. It’ll be a first. The viewer will experience the beauty of China’s 20 best models, dressed in Hawaiian Tropic wear, and its people being entertained by the music, song and dance from Troy, Sterling, the California Goodtime Band, and Ron Rice’s Hawaiian Tropic Performers. (For names of participants, see Chinaexpo /Ron Rice).
---- The viewer of this hour long syndicated Television Program, will not only witness beautiful woman from sixteen different cities, on location performances from the Great Wall, but will see the makings of the on-location filming of the feature film, “WIRELESS”, directed by one of China’s famous movie directors. The “HT Beauty From The Forbidden City” pageant winner, will be announced at the end of the program. 
---- To show the growth and changes in China, since 1988, previous footage of China’s top former presidents and head of State, Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin, filmed with Troy Cory on stage, will be incorporated and mixed in with this China 2004 Concert footage. This trip will be fascinating and enlightening about the way China and Uncle Sam does business. This China Television Show will be a first, and a must for Webcasting for years to come. It’s part of the process, in search of lost comprehensions and broken dreams. The TV Special will become a DVD blockbuster hit.
---- The ‘fountain of youth”, which Ponce de Leon referred to many years ago -- does exist, and Troy rediscovered it many years ago in China. The “joy in knowing and seeing this for yourself, will keep you forever young”, says executive producer, Toni C. Ballard, author of “How To Succeed In Hollywood.”

It’s a must to produce this historical TV special with the uttermost care. Once seen on television, it’ll be around forever -- on DVD and replay. Troy Cory’s China Expo 2004 Goodwill Tour and “In Search of Lost Horizons - China 2004” -- will transform you.
---- The TV Shows other suggested work-in-process titles are: An Evening in China with Troy Cory and Ron Rice’s Hawaiian Tropic Performers; China, the land of “Firewire, Wireless and Watermelons” / Beauty From The Forbidden City.
