Subject: are there any donations for the late artistes?

Hi Shamsuddin,
There is a 'Tabung Bin Ramlee Bin Puteh' for the children of P Ramlee. The funding is generated from royalty of P Ramlee songs which we can never ascertain how big. Lately, several veterans of the Jalan Ampas Studio are getting monthly allowances from the Malaysian Government. Not sure about public donations or 'kenduris' for the veteran artistes. Certainly good, if any. Somebody in the list might want to add.

Subject: P Ramlee film classics

Greetings,
I met online Mr Anand Ramanathan who is the grandson of S Ramanathan. As you know, the senior Ramanathan was the director of 'Juwita' (1951), 'Sedarah' (1952), 'Ibu' / 'Mother' (1953) and 'Panggilan Pulau' (1954). These films are truly P Ramlee classics! Hope the family could share some stories about his working relationship with P Ramlee.

Comments from Fans of P Ramlee welcome.

Hi Cherlyn,
You can use the information and pictures at the site. However, a matter of courtesy, please mention in your school project the P Ramlee Cyber Museum (www.p-ramlee.com) as its source.

P Ramlee was given the Panglima Setia Mahkota (PSM) medal which carries the title 'Tan Sri' on 6 June 1990.

Subject: Synopsis of 'Anak-ku Sazali'

>Dear all,
>This is a short review on the story, as far as I remember... The overall story revealed the problem of a relationship between a father and his son. This is a very touching story, with a very sad ending. It began with an atmosphere of a rich family that only consisted of a father and a son. The dad loves his son (Sazali) very2 much, just because of he afraid that the son might feel incomplete due to the mum's absence (passed away). Sazali can get everything he want, which then made him feel so proud and naughty. As other normal children, the curiosity has led him to try anything, including all the bad deeds. He even dare to cheat his dad and also dare to confront his teachers. However, his father can not do anything to stop him, just because of the 'excessive' love to his one and only child. As time goes by, Sazali became a head of a gangster group, and has a great influence in Singapore. He had involved in a lot of robberies, where at last he has been trackdown by the police. In his last robbery, he has been shot and ran and hide at his father's house. His father has the greatest dilemma at that point of moment, whether to cover-up his son or report this to the authority. Lastly, in order to pay all of his wrong-doing before (not to bring his son up in the good way), he himself had called police and report that his son is hiding in his house. Sazali then has been caught by the police, leaving his father alone with all the memories.

Subject: Synopsis of 'Anak-ku Sazali'

Full of drama, romance, tragedy and melodious songs. When P.Ramlee and Zaiton were on the sampan, this shot was the actual situation at that point of time where the Malayan people in the villages in the deep kampongs used rivers as mean of transportation way. The song "Tanya Sama Hati…" ('Itulah Sayang') I can say easily that it was one of those impactfully romantic songs ever written by P.Ramlee. The most upbeat song for the film and also at that time of the year 1956 was 'Joget Si Pinang Muda' where in the film it depicts the couple happiest moment when "Hassan" was very successful in his song writing career cum singer. For the rest of the synopsis, please read below:

Hassan ialah seorang anak yatim piatu yang bekerja dengan seorang yang kaya. Orang kaya tersebut mempunyai dua orang anak, Mansor dan Mahani. Hassan begitu meminati alunan muzik sehingga dia sanggup membelanjakan wangnya untuk membeli sebuah biola dan kemudian pergi belajar dengan seorang guru biola. Persahabatan Hassan dengan Mansor dan Mahani begitu erat. Apabila dewasa, Mansor dihantar belajar ke Singapura sementara Mahani pula hendak dikahwinkan dengan pilihan ayahnya. Hassan yang mempunyai perasaan kasih terhadap Mahani, tidak dapat menerima kenyataan itu lalu melarikan diri ke Singapura. Mahani yang juga mengasihi Hassan mengikutnya ke Singapura dan berjumpa Mansor. Mahani dan Hassan berkahwin dengan persetujuan Mansor yang sememangnya sedar tentang perhubungan adiknya dengan sahabatnya itu. Mansor juga turut berkahwin dengan seorang gadis bernama Rokiah. Selepas itu Hassan meneruskan minatnya kepada muzik dan berjaya menjadi seorang ahli muzik terkenal. Hassan begitu gembira apabila Mahani mengandung anak sulung mereka. Malangnya Mahani meninggal dunia ketika melahirkan anak lelaki yang kemudiannya dinamakan Sazali. Kasih sayang dan kepercayaan Hassan terhadap Sazali begitu tinggi sehingga menyebabkan Sazali membesar menjadi seorang yang kurang ajar dan membuat pelbagai kejahatan. Sazali mempunyai pengikut yang ramai dan menjadi seorang ketua gengster yang paling dikehendaki di Singapura. Pada suatu hari, polis berjaya mengesan rompakan yang sedang dilakukan oleh kumpulan Sazali, tetapi Sazali dapat melepaskan diri walaupun cedera akibat ditembak polis. Dia kembali ke rumah ayahnya untuk mendapatkan perlindungan. Hassan terpaksa membuat keputusan yang begitu berat bagi menebus kesilapannya di masa lalu.

The movie tells us the story of Hassan who has great passion for music. Hassan and Ani eloped and ran away to Singapore knowing that their marriage will never be approved by Ani's parents. Hassan soon made a name for himself as a musician and later as a composer. His compositions received great reviews. Hassan was overjoyed when he found out that his wife was pregnant but it soon turned to sorrow as Ani died giving birth to a son, Sazali. Hassan turned his affection towards Sazali and soon Sazali grew up into a rich spoilt kid. Sazali grew up to become one of Singapore's most wanted men. The police was tipped off when Sazali and his gang committed burglary. Sazali was shot but managed to escape and seek shelter in his father's home. What did Hassan do?

HUJAN PANAS 1953: 'Ingin Tahu'. ARJUNA 1954: 'Sikit Kasi Banyak Minta').

List of songs recorded by P Ramlee and Momo (CHINTA 1948: 'Gelora Asmara'. NASIB 1949: 'Nasib', 'Awas2 Jangan Tertawan', 'Udara Nyaman'. BAKTI 1950: 'Merpati Dua Sejoli'.

And here's the lyrics for 'Baidah' that you requested:

Baidah
baidah baidah oh kesuma dewi
baidah baidah oh asmara murni
siang malam aku terbayang
wajah mu nan jauh membayang

baidah baidah oh asmara murni
baidah baidah sebagai melati
lihat rembulan mangambang bercahaya
harapan nan abadi

oh baidah (4 X)
dengarlah dek, dengarlah kesuma hati
nyanyianku di tengah malam nan sunyi
bisikan dengan angin yang lalu
bisikan suci dari kalbuku
angin malam yang sedang meniup sayu
katakanlah kepada kesuma hatiku
oh baida asmaraku sedang merindu
membayang wajahmu selalu

It is now difficult to find the P Ramlee's classics you mentioned. Someone in the list might able to help. Alternatively, you could get P Ramlee films on VCD to hear his songs.

Subject: P Ramlee Documentary

Hi Ifa,
There are many TV documentaries about P Ramlee and Jalan Ampas Studio shown on Singapore's Suria channel. I believe they were produced by Yusnor Ef, who was a 'student' of P Ramlee. When Yusnor was a young man he used to hang around with P Ramlee at the latter's house and during film location in Singapore. Don't know whether there are available in VCD format. We have future plan to stream P Ramlee documentary at the Cyber Museum in collaboration with the copyright owner.

I also wish to share my sympathy for the victims of tsunami. Several of our list members reside in Aceh, Indonesia. As you might know, P Ramlee's father migrated to Malaya from Lhokseumawe, Aceh. We hope all our friends well. May God bless the souls of their loved ones. Amen.

(Sorry that I posted in English for the benefit of non-Malays in the list)

>Saya ifa ingin bertanyakan mengenai vcd documentary mengenai hal-hal kehidupannya(p.ramlee). Ada tak documentary yang berbentuk vcd...saya harap ia ade....kerana masa waktu 1990 an waktu saya masih sekolah menengah ade rancangan mengenai p.ramlee, kisah kelahirannya, kehidupan suka dan dukanya, rumahtangganya dan bidang nya sebagai penghibur ada dipaparkan di televisyen, tetapi saya terlupa rancangan dan channel apa namanya. Saya harap rancangan rancangan boleh di salurkan ke vcd. Saya pasti ramai akan beli vcd doku. itu kerana ia berbentuk media cetak boleh ditonton ramai berbanding buku yang harus dibaca dan huruf-hurufnya amat kecil sekali. Saya harap pihak felix entertainment akan "lahirkan" dokumentary kisah p.ramlee ke vcd...insyallah!
