Thai movie Chum Hat Jai (ชุมทางหาดใหญ่), directed by Sor Asanajinda in year 1966, is lost in Thailand but luckily a sequence of 1h08mn (three last reels) is still left. It was stored in a museum of a Thai temple in the north of Thailand. Only incomplete summary is available. This movie is a mix of comedy, romance and action. This movie was shot in Songkhla area so showing how this southern city was fifty years ago. As the movie is in 16mm format, it requires live dubbing so the remaining extract is in mute state making it more difficult to understand. Sena Prachan (Mitr Chaibancha) is an army officer. Jing Gang (Petchara Chaowarat) is a fearsome young lady (ไม่กลัวใคร). Sena Prachan is pretending being crazy (อาคารเป็นบ้า) in order to spy Chao Likim's (Tawan Siriwat) activities. Ai Darling (foreign actress) is Chao Likim's daughter. Sena's kisses are able to calm down Ai Darling and also Jing Gang while he is investigating on ruffians. Many other characters are present such as Chanee Yotchai as ruffian, Ruj Ronnapop (Mayong), Sukon Koewliam, Choomporn Theppitak, Taksin Jampol (Bo Bang Rajan), Preeya Roongrueng, Adul Dulyarat (captain). Ai Darling and Jing gang fight over Sena Prachan. Tat (Tat Ekathat) is head of police. Mayong is shot facing seven ruffians. Chao Likim hits his own daughter considered as a traitor (ลูกสาวทรยศ). Sena Prachan helps but is also finally captured. Jing Gang’s parents are Somkuan (Somkuan Krajangsat) and Thanyong (Sarinthip Siriwan). Thanyong gets shot while helping Bo Bang Rajan, who is also an undercover military officer. Sor Asanajinda is also playing. A train is chased by a car and an helicopter through Songkhla region landscape. Somkuan, a repent (ผู้ร้ายที่จะกลับใจ), is forced by Chao Likim to be part of a prisoner exchange deal (แลกตัว) but he is carrying a bomb. The movie ends up with multiple shootings between ruffians and the heroes. Somkuan gets shot by Chao Likim but this latter also gets shot by Jing Gang and Sena Prachan.
