This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Watching The Little Prince's awful, mawkish and amateurish movies (and I have done my very best to watch all that I could get my
hands on) is like enduring a very long bad day in a bad dentist's chair.

The Little Prince compelled members of his family and his entourage to appear in his films (including the current
king, featured as a dancer, and the talented Bopha Devi, one of his still-surviving daughters*).

One of the most lamentable of his ghastly, mawkish and amateurish movies, "Apsara," featured General Nhiek Tioulong and the
hitherto-unknown Saksi Sbong, a full-bosomed air hostess conscripted from Royal Air Cambodge.

When Peter O'Toole was in SR/Angkor, filming a portion of "Lord Jim", who should waddle up but The Little Prince
himself. Instead of saying, modestly, "I've come to watch how competent people make a real movie and learn how it's done right," he
launched - out of nowhere - into a bitter denunciation of Britain. British Imperialism and the British Empire.

Peter O'Toole listened to this tirade with studied patience and responded "You are so very right, Your Highness. We Irish have suffered so very much."

* It will be recalled that several of S's children and grandchildren (5 plus at least 9, possibly 11 or more) failed to survive the Democratic Kampuchea period. It seems
odd that the subject did not come up in the four hours [!] of conversation S enjoyed with Brother Number One before S was successfully whisked
aboard the Chinese Boeing and thus escaped being a figurehead of the post-1979 regime, as he had been (temporarily) a figurehead of the post-1975 regime.

Perhaps he didn't know the fate of those children at that time?

Here's another by Ackyl Anwary. This time from 1993. Seems he was into powerful female figures before Tarentino and the 00's Hollywood explosion.

That girl looks better at Kung Fu than Uma Thurman. This girl can KICK!

John Bingham suggests that S was - in all probability - unaware of the ghastly deaths of several of
his children and grandchildren, but he was surely aware that he hadn't heard from them throughout the
years when he, Monique and his two children by Monique were - as he expressed it himself - prisoners of
the DK regime.

To the best of my knowledge, no certain information is available as to what happened to S's various
children and grandchildren and yet, quite obviously, someone must know. One is aware that more than
forty years have passed since the KR came to power, but many of the KR executioners were in their teens and
many must still be alive and adequately memorious.

Most of those "covers" just appropriate the tune but the lyrics bear no real relation to the original ones.
