This Week’s Film: Flower Drum Song
This Week's Film: Flower Drum Song
Synopsis: An arranged transcontinental marriage between a Chinese bride and a San Francisco nightclub owner sets the stage for this film adaptation of Rogers and Hammerstein’s classic Broadway musical. Miyoshi Umeki, Jack Soo, and Nancy Kwan star as bride-to-be Mei Li, her fiancé Sammy Fong, and his sexy singer Linda Low. Chinese tradition and modern American culture are juxtaposed in a showcase of musical pageantry.
Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Chinese recipe.
