His parents are played by famous veteran actor Somchai Samipak and veteran actress Juree Osiri. Chalai is a high-so girl pushed by Rangsan's mother to marry her son. Working conditions are hard in the factory, i.e. hot and noisy environment. Japanese investors are visiting the factory. Yamada, the Japanese factory owner, wants Oi to represent the Thai factory in Japan as angel protector. Everybody is stunned by Oi's beauty when she wears traditional clothes. Molam song is used as soundtrack (สาวโรงงาน). Oi is split between her boyfriend waiting for her in Isan and the strong interest shown by the factory manager Rangsan. There is a contest in the factory similar to Songkran festival (ประกวด เทพธิดาโรงงาน or angel factory contest). Pa Chan, an old aunt (Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit), working there for twenty years, gets the title. A high society fair is organized by Rangsan's parents in their home. Oi is invited (สวัสดีปีใหม่). There is a contrast between western classical music used in high society part and Molam listened in the factory. But at the end the high society people (ผู้ดี) also push each other for the buffet. Lak Apichat is playing a house guard. The fair degenerates as Chalai denigrates Oi (คนบ้านนอก) and ends up with a bowl of food on the head. Rangsan refuses to punish Oi as she didn't behave badly in her job so the mother hires ruffians but they get pushed back thanks to the taxi driver Pen (อโนเชาว์ ยอดบุตร). Many countryside people have dreams when coming to Bangkok the first time (กรุงเทพเป็นเมืองฟ้า). Some workers end up working in sauna believing work is easier and getting fast money. Pa Chan loses conscience again while working. Despite being a worker dedicated for twenty years, she is finally thrown away like a dog (is it the reward for being a slave for twenty years?). A sign shows “Safety first” but no action is taken to help Pa Chan. Rangsan explains the gesture by being worried about syndicates and wish to avoid inspections as it could mean additional expenses. Oi rescues the old lady at her home. Oi is invited in Japan and shall be selected as factory angel representative. On the day of the announcement event, Pa Chan dies of sickness in Oi's arms. Oi makes a touching speech to the factory management complaining about their lack of humanity towards Pa Chan. She quits her job and goes back to Isan.

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.

Chadaporn Wachirapranee is Chat’s old wife so he punches Sompol Kongsuwan to show he is back. Chao Klaewklong introduces Chat to Kecha. Kecha is looking for a new right-hand man (แขนขวาคนใหม่) as Yot betrayed him. Kecha wishes Chat to get rid of Yot.

Pai Lu and Ratsamee escape from Adul but get arrested by policeman Lor Tok, who ignore they are from Interpol Police (ตำรวจสากล). A painting called เพชรตัดเพชร is purchased by Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit bidding against Kecha. Miss Boran (Kaenjai Meenakanit) is the sexy painter.

In the Chinese synopsis, Mitr Chaibancha is written as mi-tsai- wan-chai (Thai detective No 78) and called as Ah Tsai in the movie. Regina Pai Ping (Hong Kong agent No 113) is called as Pai Lu in the movie. Petchara Chaowarat is written as Pi-chai-la and called as Sha Mei in the movie. The movie was so famous that it was released once in year 1966 and then reshown again in year 1975. The original version lasts 2h20mn but the 1975 version was reduced to less than 2 hours as both movies เพชรตัดเพชร and คนเหนือคน were shown together. The DVD released by company Pantamit is based on the 1975 version. It took five years for company Pantamit to convince the film owner to lend it in order to make a digital copy.

Certainly there is a need to find a more recent version in order to better understand this three minutes old trailer. In the past, such movies needed four people to perform the dubbing.

Rating: 5/5
Director: Tae Prakardwutthisan

Main actor: Chalit Susewee,Sompong Phonmitr
Main actress: Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit

สาวเครือฟ้า - Sao Kreua Fah (1953) is produced by Tae Prakardwutthisan. Tae Prakardwutthisan’s second movie is featuring actor Chalit Susewee (ชลิต สุเสวี) and actress Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit. It was shot in Chiang Mai (including Doi Suthep) in year 1952 and released in year 1953. It is a sad romantic movie (ชีวิตรักโศก). Famous veteran comic actor Sompong Phonmitr is also acting. Officer Roitree (ร้อยตรีพร้อม) meets Kreua Fa (Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit) the first time and falls immediately in love. Kreua Fa is a traditional dancer (ฟ้อน) and is the daughter of a mahout. He goes to her home and meets an old lady raising Kreua Fa since she is a child. Love emerges. Roitree and Kreua Fa have a son. World War I happens. One day Roitree learns that he has to move to Bangkok. He goes to Europe as airplane pilot. He is injured. Back to Thailand, he gets awarded by a higher military rank but has lost memory about the past. He doesn’t remember Kreua Fah and his child. His parents force him to marry a girl from a high lineage. One day, he goes with his wife in Chiang Mai for a plane exhibition. Kreua Fah, aware, is waiting for him. Disappointing that Roitree is married and doesn’t remember her, she gets suicide. Roitree finally recovers memory but it is too late... The 1953 movie is lost in Thailand but hopefully a 16mm behind the sequence of ten minutes is still available. It was given by Tae Prakardwutthisan himself in year 1988 to the Thai Film Archives. It is pure happiness to see sharp pictures of Chalit Susewee and Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit more than 60 years after the movie was shot. In year 1957 Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit got a Thai cinema award (ตุ๊กตาทองนำหญิง) for this movie for the first opus of the Thai cinema awards. At that time, most of the theaters had contracts to use foreign films the whole year so it was difficult for Thai movies to get slots. As Thai movies were not numerous at that time, Sao Kreua Fa was even shown the same year a few times during different months (shown 5 times in 4 different theaters level 1 – โรงหนังชั้นหนึ่ง). Even the Thai King and Thai Queen saw it. Many remakes were released, i.e. Thai TV series in 1971, 1991, 1996 and Thai movies in 1965 (Mitr Chaibancha and Pissamai Wilaisak), 1980 (Nirut Sirijanya and Supansa Nuengpirom). Movie สาวเครือฟ้า was going to be sold to Russia but the Russian distributor realised it was a 16mm movie so needing live dubbing for each projection! The plan foiled. Tae Prakardwutthisan nevertheless recommended to use 35mm format for next movies.
