พยัคฆ์พันลาย or Tiger Fighting / MAGNUM KILLERS is a 1973 Thai movie. Pan (Sombat Methanee) has a fight in an illegal casino as his brother was cheated of 500 usd. The casino owner, MengYu, offers him a deal, i.e. accept to go to prison for 10 000 USD in order to contact one of his teammates jailed for life. Only this inmate knows where Wang Piu, nicknamed as King Cobra, is. Veteran actor Lor Tok is playing the jail keeper. The inmate is killed just after telling to Pan that King Cobra is located in Pu Geng area and after giving a letter of introduction. Pan teams up with Lor Tok. They are both threatened by ruffians also looking for King Cobra. Pan asks his friend Chumporn to look after his home and his brother while he is away looking for King Cobra. Around Pu Geng area, Pan meets the local owner (Adinan Singhiran) of a mine. He is hired as a tough man after showing up his skills to knock out four guys and even helps the mine owner's daughter who was kidnapped. Meanwhile Pan's brother is kidnapped by a team of ruffians led by a fierce young lady called KenYouSee (Wassana Chalakorn). To get his brother back, Pan needs to bring Wang Piu to the young lady. She has a revenge to take as Wang Piu caused her parents to die 10 years ago. Pan locates the King Cobra or Wang Piu thanks to the letter of introduction but the young lady KenYouSee is following just behind them. Pan finally meets a noble man looking for his lost princess daughter. Meanwhile KenYouSee captures King Cobra and tortures him as revenge. MengYu, the casino owner, KenYouSee and other thugs were all looking for King Cobra. MengYu double crosses Pan. The princess is in fact Peng, KenYouSee's sister. Everybody is looking for her jewels box as it includes a list of political insurgents. The list is for sale. Finally the princess is kidnapped by MengYu while storming KenYouSee's camp to try getting King Cobra. Through a daring operation, Pan and his friends release the princess. During the movie shooting, long trail boats run over each other and actress Petchara Chaowarat falls in the river. MengYu's team and the thugs willing to buy the list kill each other believing the other party breaks the deal. It is a full packed action movie. Unfortunately the Thai movie is cut into an international version lasting only 1h33mm instead of two hours so those cuts make the movie directing and scenario sometimes weird. It is a IFD movie and luckily it is not merged with Ninja sequences as the original Thai movie is lost in Thailand. During year 1976, this movie was famous as famous veteran actress Petchara Chaowarat falls in the water following a dangerous action scene between two long trail boats. It appears on all Thai newspapers and those newspapers are even featured on the movie poster! The other event was related to sexy actress (ดาวยั่วเซ็กซี) Wassana Chalakorn who dares playing naked in a shower scene. The IFD movie has been redubbed in Thai language in Thailand recently.

Kwanchai Suriya (ขวัญชัย สุริยา) is a new actor and part of the numerous tentatives to find a proper candidate to replace superstar Mitr Chaibancha, who unfortunately died in year 1970. Kwanchai Suriya was quite shy when acting so he only played 2 movies as main actor and then only secondary roles. When Kwanchai realizes his wife is now a ghost (รู้เป็นผี) so he flees from his home but Petchara is still looking for him. Sawin is back from Bangkok with a man and they do visit a cemetery with a spirit doctor (หมอผี). It is a fiasco. Meanwhile Kwanchai and his friends also hire a spirit doctor. As Petchara ghost refuses to be born again, it is imprisoned in an earth clay pot. Many spirit doctors (หมอผีแขก, หมอผีจีน, หมอผีไทย) intervene but fail to control the ghost. Following all the deaths, Kwanchai agrees to go with Petchara ghost to stop the killings. He gets estranged and both go to hell judgment. The hell king refuses to accept Kwanchai as it is not his time to die yet. Before leaving, the Hell King shows him around. It features two songs in the Hell Kingdom. Through a touching song, Petchara tries to convince the Hell guardian but to no avail. Finally Kwanchai is sent back to earth but all his friends believe he is a ghost too! The movie ends with Kwanchai convincing them that he is still alive. The movie features a total of three songs.

ลำพู is a Thai movie released in year 1970. 1h23mn is left so only three reels. Normally movies in decade 1960s~1970s often last two hours minimum. The picture is still colorful. The reels left are in 16mm format so the movie is mute as such format requires dubbing. Famous director Cherd Songsri is behind the camera. The below summary is based on understanding as there is no sound available. Choomporn (Choomporn Theppitak) and two young ladies, including Prim, have arguments in the market with local sellers. Few comics make fun of them. Sawin (Sawin Sawangrat), influential local man, is linked to Choomporn. Choomporn sees the comics during a fair and chases one of them. Petchara (Petchara Chaowarat) is dancing and wearing a beautiful traditional costume during this fair. Prim (Prim Praphaporn) is jealous of Petchara as Sombat (Sombat Methanee) is in relationship with Petchara. A few Isan songs are featured as singer is using a Kaen (แคน). The movie quits the countryside to the seaside where Sombat and Petchara have fun singing, playing unreal music instruments and playing in the water. Prim have arguments with Petchara while she is keeping her suitcase following her trip to seaside. Prim and Petchara are sisters? While Petchara is sick following overwork, her friends take care of her. Sombat is back from abroad. Prim wishes to become the official fiancee and to replace Petchara in Sombat’s heart. She organizes Sombat’s kidnapping but it fails. She finally drugs him. Meanwhile Petchara is kidnapped by Choomporn and Sawin. A huge storm is coming. Awaken, Sombat pushes back Prim and rushes to look for Petchara. People like Sawin struggles to bring their wealth with them but finally dies in house explosion following their greedy attitude. This movie is certainly one of the first Thai catastrophe movies. The movie includes real footage of a storm, i.e. Talumphuk storm in Nakhon Sri Thammarat on 27 october 1962. The severe storm called Talumphuk (ตะลุมพุก) devastated Pak Phanang coast and Talumphuk cape. It killed 769 inhabitants. Petchara falls from a passerelle during the storm. Sombat falls also during the storm. After the storm, many corpses can be seen. Sombat is looking for Petchara anxiously. She cannot be found. Petchara's friend blames Sombat. She is finally rescued by the hospital but her face is disfigured to the big delight of Prim. Petchara thinks about suicide but her mother prevents her. Sombat is still looking for Petchara despite her parents saying she has disappeared. Recognizing her clothes on a clothesline, he knows she is hiding in her parents’ home. She refuses Sombat's love as she is now ugly. Sombat promises to take care and to pay for hospital bills regarding facial surgery. Prim hires Choomporn, promising sweet rewards, to pour acid on Petchara’s face while she is recovering at hospital. He does so but does it on the wrong person! At a big party, Sombat is accompanied by Petchara back to her full beauty causing Prim’s wrath. The movie stops here.

Saming (สมิง) is a local ruffian. He loves a young lady called Srinuan (ศรีนวล) (Petchara Chaowarat). While trying to get back a necklace belonging to his family, Saming is injured so he cannot stay close to Srinuan. Neung (หนึ่ง) (Mitr Chaibancha), a Bangokian young man, comes to visit the village one week for a local yearly dance contest festival. Saming loves Srinuan but Srinuan is more interested in Neung. It is reciprocal. Saming is unhappy with Neung. During the dance contest, competitors try to hurt Srinuan but Neung protects her and gets injured. Srinuan spends the night with Neung. As Srinuan’s father, Kamnan Tong (กำนันธง), is aware, Neung needs to take responsability (ต้องรับผิดชอบ). Neung is coming from a rich family. His father is disappointed by his son's behavior but wants his son to finish his studies first and get approval from the grandmother. Neung needs to leave. Srinuan promises to wait (ค่อยพี่นะ). Behind the curtain, Neung's father promises land and money to Srinuan's father to forget about this union. 18 years have passed. A daughter is born from their brief union. Her name is Soi (สอยดาว), who is now a beautiful teen. Neung's father sends his grand children to check the land he gave to subdistrict headman Tong. It includes Deuan (สาวเดือน ) and Kla (ลูกเมียแต่ง / ลูกเมียหลวง). Saming (โจร เสือ) is now the ruffians leader. Srinuan doesn't want Soi to meet the Bangkokian people as they might have bad intentions. Soi helps Deuan, her half sister, who falls in the river (ด้วยน้ำใจ). She is sad that her real father never visited her. Kla, the brother, has a bad mindset denigrating countryside people and gets smacked by Soi. Neung wishes to know who hit Kla. Neung meets Soi and understands she is her daughter. Neung wishes to know the truth about Soi. The father, subdistrict headman Tong, doesn't wish to let Neung meet Srinuan again but Neung insists. After 18 years passed Srinuan doesn't want to meet him again also (ไม่อยากเป็นเมียที่สอง! ไปขอทานที่อื่น!). Finally Neung recognizes officially Soi as her daughter and she moves to Bangkok to become an upper class lady (เลือดควาย / เลือดผู้ดี). Neung’s wife, Soi Phet, doesn't accept this as it means to share heritage with another family member. Many troubles happen. Kla sends two ruffians to rape Soi. The grandmother falls from stairs while trying to help. Soi is accused and goes back to countryside with her mother. Neung’s wife wishes to get back the land. Following a boat assault, Neung’s wife is shot. Saming is responsible. Following gun fights between Police and ruffians, a final duel happens between Neung and Saming. Neung wins. Kla is injured and is forgiven by his father and Soi. Neung and Srinuan can now live happily together. Interesting to find that Sorapong Chatree, Thailand’s most famous actor, is playing a young stunt during a few minutes at the beginning of the movie.

She gives her a letter. What is inside the letter? Certainly a letter in which Petchara shall reject her rights to the heritage. Later on, Adul wants Petchara to sign a letter but she refuses so he slaps her. Adul threatens her mother to force Petchara to sign the letter. Meanwhile Mitr and Ruekyamdee enter secretly in the house where Petchara is held prisoner in order to help her. Shootings happen with ruffians but Thai police arrive on time to catch Adul. There is an important meeting to open heritage documents at the same time. Petchara arrives on time before the final signature! The grandfather was kept in the dark regarding Petchara by his own family but they all got arrested by police for forgery. Many movies names with Mitr and Petchara started with นก (bird) such as นกยูง (1969), นกแก้ว (1969), นกขมิ้น (1965) or นกน้อย (1964).

ไทยน้อย is a Thai movie directed by Dokdin Kanyaman and released in year 1969. A 4mn30 mute trailer, shot in 16mm format, is still remaining. Another sequence of 3mn30 can be found on internet also. So parts of the original movie seem to be still available. Sombat Methanee and Petchara Chaowarat are the main actors in this movie. Dokdin Kanyaman and Orasa Isarangkul are playing supporting roles (ตัวประกอบ) so bringing additional fun. As usual, Dokdin’s movie features songs and beautiful ladies (Chadaporn Wachirapranee and a veteran sexy actress mixed Thai and foreigner - ลูกครึ่ง). A bit of action is present with a few fist fights involving Sombat Methanee. Sombat and Chana Sriubon also cross swords. Movie ไทยน้อย (Thai Noi) was released in 1969 and movie ไทยใหญ่ (Thai Jai) was released in 1970. Sombat and Petchara are wearing prince / princess clothes in both movies. Despite information is lacking on movie ไทยน้อย (Thai Noi), it is guessed that both movies ไทยน้อย (Thai Noi) and ไทยใหญ่ (Thai Jai) are linked together. Thanks to her unique sweet eyes and face, Thai people loved actress Petchara Chaowarat so much. She got nickname as นางเอกนัยน์ตาหยาดน้ำผึ้ง (honey eyes) or เพชรน้ำหนึ่งราชินีจอเงิน. The other 3mn30s sequence is still colorful and quite sharp. Petchara is selling fruits in a train station and sells to customers in the train when it halts temporary in the station. Petchara plays two roles in the movie. Orasa kidnaps the fruit vendor for Petchara to replace her. Certainly she is chased by some ruffians. Dokdin is selling also fruits in the train station and finds that her behavior has changed. On the way to be recognized by a ruffian, Petchara forcibly feeds Sombat with fruits to create diversion.

Kangwan (กังวาน) and Karaket (การะเกด) meet each other in a Buddhist temple at night time. Kangwan, young and rich bachelor, is studying magic and ghosts knowledge (วิชาชุบชีวิต). Karaket brings flowers to her mother grave, Nang Sopha. Ladies O and Karaket are half sisters, i.e. same father but different mothers. O's mother was the main wife. Karaket's mother, Nang Sopha, was the minor wife (เมียน้อย). Kangwan's father and the two daughters' father agreed to have Kangwan marry one of the two daughters. O and her mother are jealous towards Karaket especially as Kangwan has more interest into Karaket than into O. The mother decides to have Karaket killed. She is already responsible of Karaket's mother death twenty years ago by poisoning. The mother and her maid try to poison Karaket's drinking water. Nang Sopha ghost protects her daughter but no killing shall be done to avoid adding more sins to her karma (กรรม). The poisoning attempt fails thanks to the ghost intervention. The bad mother then uses a monk to purify the house and install a sacred thread around the house to prevent ghosts from entering. Kangwan has to go to India to continue his studies. Meanwhile the bad mother attempts another trial to kill Karaket by putting a snake inside a box. This time due to sacred tread (สายสิญจน์) the ghost cannot help her and she dies following the snake bite. Kangwan is at Taj Mahal when Karaket's spirit asks for help. It is time for judgement in hell and Phra Yom (God of the underworld) takes Karaket with him. Kangwan has to fulfill the earlier promise between both families and is forced to marry O. But thanks to his knowledge in white magic, his soul (วิญญาณ) goes to hell to pick up Karaket and brings her back in the living world. The trueness behind Karaket's death is known. The mother sizes a gun and kills her maid, who has revealed the truth, and is strangled by Nang Sopha ghost before being able to kill Karaket a second time. Kangwan and Karaket can marry happily. In this old movie, there are typical dog howlings to indicate ghosts coming and Fx effect are limited to images superposition for ghosts apparition. This great old 1960s movie with superstars Mitr Chaibancha and Petchara Chaowara is typical of old Thai movies with the bad girl (นางอิจฉา) trying everything to be the main actor's girlfriend and always trying to get rid of the leading actress (นางเอก).

As Sa No Noi doesn't feel well while the Prince is awakening, Kula changes her clothes and pretends to be the one who saves the Prince (พระราชบุตร). Sa No Noi is disappointed (น้อยใจ) with Kula as she saved her life before. She becomes Kula's servant. Kula refuses to give back the medicine to Sa No Noi. The Prince wishes to help Sa No Noi. This movie features typical characters from 1960s movies. The leading actress (นางเอก) is a nice polite shy princess coming from a good family lady. The jealous lady (นางอิจฉา) seduces men first, kisses them or is ready to make love immediately without waiting the wedding. She has no education. She is poor, lazy and deceitful. To try to prevent the wedding the family gives difficult tasks for Kula to do (flower composition...). Only a good educated lady can execute such tasks so Kula forces Sa No Noi to do it for her. The prince leaves the palace for a government mission but in fact he wishes to find Sa No Noi's golden house to prove her real identity. He faces a typhoon but finally reaches Sa No Noi's kingdom and brings back the house. Under Sa No Noi's guidance, the golden house become a real house with servants. Sa No Noi's real identity is revealed and she forgives Kula. On the way back to her kingdom with the Prince, their boat is wrecked and they are separated. The prince meets an hermit. Sa No Noi meets again Kula who plays a trick with her despite all of her previous goodness. A noble man called Wilai meets Kula. She lies to him pretending she is a princess. Meanwhile Sa No Noi has been rescued by Wilai's parents. Sa No Noi delivers a baby, whose father is the Prince. Kula kidnaps the baby. The baby is rescued by another hermit. The baby is called Paiwan. Kula is captured by some robbers and become the leader's wife. While Sa No Noi is going back home, her convoy is attacked by the ruffians. The Prince just comes back and helps on time. The whole family is reunited. Kula is punished and transformed as a cow. The story of Sa No Noi is part of Thai folklore. This story is also available through a TV Thai serie (1984) and many cartoons. This old movie last two hours and fifteen minutes. It has a very good and colorful image quality. The last part of the movie is certainly too fast paced as it is difficult to narrate such a long story in only two hours.

Chat Krathing (ชาติกระทิง) is a 1966 Thai movie but only 6mn30 are left. Only a trailer is left. The whole movie is lost as it is a 16mm format reel so it was certainly shown until it became unusable. No movie summary is currently available. Only a commercial movie poster is left. This movie features four big stars, i.e. Sombat Methanee, Luechai Natnat, Petchara Chaowarat and Sopha Sataporn. They are together for the first time and for the only time. Some ruffians harass veteran comic Sukon Koewliam. So Petchara Chaowarat protects him by hitting one of the ruffians. On next sequence, the ruffians speed through a village but this time they face Sombat Methanee. Fist fights happen. Romance between two couples Sopha / Luechai and Sombat / Petchara happen. Famous director Phan Kam (พันคำ) is there again. Luechai is part of the fight party. Movies with him are hard to find as his fame period was during 1957-1960, just before Mitr Chaibancha golden period, and then between 1964-1972. Scenario is unknown but certainly good guys (Sombat and Luechai) are fighting against ruffians terrorizing a village. Even veteran actor Chinese Boo Wibunnan can be seen in the short trailer. Actors Joomjim Khemlek, Lor Tok, Preeya Roongrueng, Kwanta Buapliensri are also mentioned in the credits but unfortunately cannot be seen in the short trailer left.

This old Thai western movie, taking place in Chiang Mai area, has a complete new soundtrack. A man is surprised sleeping in the forest. He is injured by a young lady called Chalong (Petchara Chaowarat) believing he is a thief. Nobody knows his name and why he is coming here. His real name is Pen Moradok (Sombat Methanee). In fact he is sent by central government to neutralize a local mafia head called Salapan. Pen meets many girls, i.e. Chalong, Fong and Peri, owner of a bar who all love him. Pen receives a threat to leave city within 24 hours or face death. Fights happen between Pen and Salapan's ruffians. Peri dies when helping to fight the ruffians. Finally Salapan is captured and Pen wins Chalong's heart. It is a typical 1960s movie where the leading actor seduces many actresses (James Bond syndrome?). This is a very old Thai movie compared to Thai standards. The digitalization has been poorly done. The movie is only 15 fps and some scenes are strangely cut. It should be seen for historical purpose and enjoy the chance to see famous stars Petchara Chaowarat and Sombat Methanee acting. This movie follows the Thai traditional drama precepts with a clown always following the leading actor and the leading lady having a maid of honor.
