Thai movie ขุนตาล was released in year 1969. Main actor is Sombat Methanee and main actress is Aranya Namwong. The movie is lost in Thailand but three reels remain to be seen. The whole movie is reduced to a sequence of 47 minutes so making it difficult to understand in details. Sor Asanajinda is actor and movie director. No movie summary is left to be read. The movie is in 16mm format so without sound as such format requires live dubbing. Two friends always like to fight to settle their disagreement (เพื่อนรัก). They are living in a bandit village (ชุมเสือ). One of them, called Sing (สิงห์), is having a child with Prim Praphaporn. Their son is played by Sombat Methanee. Years have passed, he is now an adult. Following some fighting, Sombat becomes the new leader and gets a crown shaped like a tiger head (มงกุฎหัวเสือ). Sombat summons a spirit doctor (หมอผี) to cure Sasitorn Phetrung (ศศิธร เพชรรุ่ง), who is blind. Some ingredients are missing. In the city, a sequence shows Chana Sriubon, Chatchadaporn Laksanawed (ชัชฎาพร), Sawin Sawangrat and Sor Asanajinda talking together. Sombat and the spirit doctor enter in Pa Sor’s house to get some of the missing ingredients. Sombat meets Chadaporn and then Aranya. Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit is the mother of the two daughters, i.e. Chadaporn and Aranya. Sombat is injured by the bandit he defeated before to become the village leader. Chana Sriubon neutralises the bandit so that Sombat can run away. Luechai Natnat is then also injured in Pa Sor's house and flees. He is chased by ruffians but gets help from Sombat. Sombat comes back again to the house to have discussion with Pa Sor and ends up kidnapping Aranya and Sasitorn. Sawin and his ruffians chase them. Chana Sriubon tries to prevent them but gets neutralised. Sombat seems very unhappy over Aranya. Aranya saves Sombat's life while he is attacked again by the rogue bandit. Sawin captures Pa Sor and Chana Sriubon. Aranya asks Sombat to help Pa Sor captured by Sawin. Wilaiwan releases Chana. Luechai gets rid of Sawin. Final duel happens between Sombat and Pa Sor until they realise they are relatives (father / son?).
