Main actress: Jarunee Sooksawad,Ampha Pusit,Namgneun Boonnak

A new teacher (ครูใหม่) called Sirin (Jarunee Sooksawad) is recruited. She notices that two students always arrive late. One is a boy called Satit coming from a rich family (ลูกเศรษฐี). One is a girl called Kalaya coming from a slum family (สลัม). The movie highlights the importance to study for teens but also the importance for teachers to keep interest from their students (รักเรียน). This school has a strict director and strict teachers keeping the same program and activities without changes over years. Sirin tries to change this mindset. In Thai schools students show respect to their teachers in the mornign and evening (ไหว้ครู) and get hit with a stick (ลงโทษ) when they fail to obey to the school rules. Sirin faces opposition from the teacher head when she wishes to punish Satit for his bad behavior. Only the poor child Boonmee gets punished. Sirin wants to have same treatment for all children either rich or poor. A fight happens between Satit and Boonmee. Satit's elder brother, called Narit, comes to complain about the new teacher at the shool. He trusts Satit and doesn't know he is behaving badly. Kalaya has no time to study. Every early morning she has to deliver newspapers. Her father is always drunk and hit his wife. Kalaya is too ashamed to say why she is late everyday. Teachers decide to buy a bicycle for her so she doesn't have to run in the morning (same as movie Walli - วัลลี). Satit keeps stealing things. This time he steals teacher belongings and accuses Boomee. Hopefully Sirin is aware of the stratagem but Narit refuses to believe that his younger brother has problems as he is coming from a rich family. Money doesn't buy happiness... Kalaya didn't come to school since many days as her father sold the bicycle to buy alcohol. She now works in a construction site. Students decide to share the workload regarding newspapers distribution so that she can be on time in school. Following a brawl, Satit is sent to Police station. Teacher Sirin confirm (รับรอง) her students integrity so that they can be released. The school is going to take part in sport competition with other schools. They have big hope in cycling with Kalaya and Thai boxing with Boonmee. Poor children train hard while rich children just enjoy beach. Sirin sees Satit stealing the director's ring. She prevents the robbing but gets injured as Satit pushes her violently. The director doesn't believe Satit could be a robber. Losing trust in her director, Sirin resigns. Students refuse to study until Sirin is back. Finally Satit tells the truth to his brother. This one asks the director to recruit back Sirin. Sirin refuses to acknowledge the director's requests but accepts when students implore her. Competition starts. The school wins in boxing and cycling. Satit becomes a good boy. Despite strange cuts in the editing, this movie is full of good feelings, i.e. school importance, teacher dedication, studies, rich and poor society opposition...

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.

นกแก้ว is a 1969 Thai movie in 16mm format with no sound. It was directed by Phan Kam, who directed more than 60 movies in his whole career. Only 1h10mn is left. Only the first and last film reels are left. So it is difficult to understand accurately the whole story. Prachuap Ruekyamdee is Petchara’s close friend. In a village on the countryside, Petchara Chaowarat catches Lor Tok trying to get fishes in their field. Sukon Koewliam is also having another comic role in the village. A grandfather in a wheel chair is talking to his son in Bangkok. As he is going old, he needs to prepare his succession. Petchara is his hidden granddaughter with another woman. The rich family siblings doesn't want her to receive anything. Anucha Rattanamarn is fiance with Kaenjai Meenakanit. They prepare a plan to disinherit Petchara. Mitr Chaibancha, the grandson, is offering flowers to the grandfather. There is a carnival in the village. Adul Dulyarat, a mysterious rich man, meets with Petchara. Petchara and Kaenchai meet also. 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).

Rating: 3/5
Director: Phan Kam

Main actor: Sombat Methanee,Luechai Natnat,Sukon Koewliam,Joomjim Khemlek,Lor Tok,Boo Wibunnan
Main actress: Petchara Chaowarat,Sopha Sataporn,Preeya Roongrueng,Kwanta Buapliensri

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.
