ลำดวน is a Thai movie released in year 1971 with Sombat Methanee and Petchara Chaowarat. The whole movie is 2h30mn long and features 7 songs. A 41mn sequence is still available online. This movie was lost in Thailand but a final copy was finally discovered in year 2013 in the house of a former outdoor projectionist. The below summary is based on the 41mn sequence. It is in 16mm format so there is no sound as such format requires live dubbing. Songthong is a temple boy. He is going to Bangkok to find a work and to sell newspapers on the street. Pipop Pupinyo is playing the father (he hasn’t yet a shaved head, which will be his recognizable trademark in following movies). The mother is played by Namgneun Boonnak. First one hour is about the parents life. Namgneun Boonnak is sick and Sukon Koewliam takes care of her. Twenty years have passed. Lamduan (Petchara Chaowarat) and Thongdee (Sombat Methanee) meet in a garden. Thongdee is a temple boy also. Thongdee is singing to declare his love to Lamduan. Lamduan is seeing ghosts, i.e. her mother (วิญญาณแม่) and then herself. Thongdee is punching Choomporn Theppitak as he is harassing young ladies. Finally Lamduan is sent to a Buddhist temple to expel ghosts. After discussion with the abbot, she leaves the area and goes with Thongdee in order to start a new life.
