'Singapore in the 1960's' is a movie that will bring you down memory lane.

This is a good movie, especially for those born in the 40's and 50's since it will bring you down memory lane !!! It is set in Singapore's legendary amusement park named Great World, which was also known in Hokkien as 'Tua Seh Kai'.

Spanning from the 1940s to the present day, the film presents four tales centered around attractions within these once famous walls.

These four stories include:

A clown on a quest to have his photo taken with English movie star Elizabeth Taylor and tells his experience to his ageing mother.

The tale of a carnival shooting gallery operator who experiences her first teenage love with a Malaysian medicinal oil seller's son.

A washed up diva of the Flamingo Nightclub who used to sing for her lost love, and rediscovers true support by her audience and her manager.

A lok-lok seller who narrates the story of his wedding dinner with his mute wife the night the Japanese invaded Singapore during World War II.

Interwoven into the film are stories of a multitude of characters that lived, worked, played, sang danced and even fell in love in Great World.
