The Straits Times Life!: Show Classic film on TV
Thursday, April 15, 2010
I was pleased to read about the restoration and screening of the Canto-drama Moon Over Malaya, (Restored Film for Charity show, Life! April 12).
The movie, shot in Singapore and Hong Kong in 1957, is a historical and social document of the times. While many old Malay films have been shown on TV, it would be great if old films in other languages are also shown on free-to-air channels. Some friends and I would have liked to see Moon Over Malaya last Saturday but it cost $50 a ticket.
