The Goggler Podcast #179: Showtime 1958

Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review Showtime 1958. Does it deliver on its promise of telling a previously untold story in the life of P. Ramlee? Does it do justice to this crucial moment in the history of Malaysian cinema? The short answer is “no.” Listen to the podcast for the longer, more nuanced, answer.

Showtime 1958 features stories that unfold during a 24-hour period which takes place during a crucial time for the Malay film industry based in the Jalan Ampas Studio which was owned by Shaw Brothers.

Showtime 1958 was directed by Anwardi Jamil and stars Bell Ngasri, Shah Iskandar, Amai Kamaruddin, and Aprena Menrose.
