Nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Music, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s unforgettable musical comedy Flower Drum Song tells the story of a young Hong Kong girl (Miyoshi Umeki, Sayonara) who travels to San Francisco as part of an arranged marriage and discovers a new and modern world. Filled with memorable songs by the legendary team of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein (South Pacific) and brilliant dances choreographed by Hermes Pan (Top Hat), this lavish Ross Hunter (All That Heaven Allows) production is beautifully realized by director Henry Koster (No Highway in the Sky) and cinematographer Russell Metty (Spartacus). Co-starring Nancy Kwan (The World of Suzie Wong) and James Shigeta (The Crimson Kimono), Flower Drum Song became a cinematic landmark as the first major Hollywood feature film to have a mostly Asian-American cast in a contemporary Asian-American story.
