A Classic Evolves: From Print to Stage to Screen was a nice look at the various versions of Flower Drum Song
11 July 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is one of the extras on the Flower Drum Song DVD. It begins with Oscar Hammerstein's voice mentioning this as his and Richard Rodgers' next musical. We also see original author C.Y. Lee mention of an original short story of his winning a prize with the result of him moving to a hotel above a Filipino night club in San Francisco. We also see the two actresses who ended up playing Linda Low-Pat Suzuki from the original Broadway version and Nancy Kwan from the movie discussing the generation gap which permeates the story's narrative as well as their different methods of dancing to the instrumental part of "Gliding Through My Memoree". And, finally, we hear from David Henry Hwang who wrote the revised version of the book of the 2002 revival. Quite an interesting short take on Flower Drum Song's journey from book to stage to screen to stage again. Worth a look.
