Flower Drum Song
Films in Program
This film of the 1958 Broadway musical by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein was groundbreaking for its use of a predominantly Asian-American cast, and for treating Chinese-Americans as Americans.
"There’s nothing subtle or fragile about this "Flower Drum Song." It is gaudy and gaggy and quite melodic. Along those lines, it is quite a show." Bosley Crowther, New York Times (1961)
