Before Malaysian Idol, before Akademi Fantasia, there was P. Ramlee.
The exhibition of 60 photographs celebrating Malaysian cinematic icon, the late Tan Sri P. Ramlee will show scenes from the legendary actor-singer-composer’s films from 1949 to 1973, as well as other more intimate images such as that of P.Ramlee in his role as a film director. All photographs are from the personal collection of Tun Ahmad Sarji bin Abdul Hamid.
Tun Ahmad Sarji has held a life-long admiration of P. Ramlee; this exhibition and publication of the biographies are his personal tribute to P. Ramlee’s life and talent.
The exhibition will be officially launched on Friday 24 June 2011 at 3.15pm, in conjunction with the re-launch of two biographies on P. Ramlee written by Tun Ahmad Sarji. “P. Ramlee: Erti Yang Sakti” (1999) and “P. Ramlee: The Bright Star” (2003), covering P. Ramlee’s on-screen life, his films and songs, as well as offer information of P. Ramlee, the man. These books have been reprinted and will be available as a box set.
A not-to-be-missed event especially for the P. Ramlee fan.
