4.0 out of 5 stars Malayan Adventure Jan. 24 2000
By same
Format:VHS Tape
Better than average adventure/drama and romantic triangle involving an American rubber plantation owner, Malay school teacher turned political activist and the daughter of a British diplomat. Lots of beautiful scenery showing the plantation and jungle. William Holden fans and those who like stories/films that take place in exotic locales will enjoy it. Although Capucine did an admirable job as the Malay school teacher, I've always found it distracting to use a European or American actress to play the part of an Asian - when there are so many extremely talented and beautiful Asian women. But alas, this was filmed in the early 60s, before we "discovered" that the best person to play the role of an Asian is an ASIAN! That's just a personal complaint of mine for all movies that did this and not a slam on this particular movie. As I mentioned, Capucine does a very convincing job and if you can convince yourself that she's perhaps Eurasian, then you're home free. I had seen the movie a couple times (theater, TV) and found it interesting enough to buy it on VHS, so that every few years we can slilp it into the VCR for another viewing. If you like movies like: The Year of Living Dangerously; Elephant Walk; The Naked Jungle; The Emerald Forest; - you'll enjoy this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 7th Dawn July 23 2005
Format:VHS Tape
I highly recommend this movie to all those who are interested in the Malayan (now Malaysia) Emergency (l948-1960). The Malayan Emergency begins with the killing of several British planters by the Communist guerillas in Sungei Siput, Perak State of the then Malaya. The actual leader of the guerillas is none other than Chin Peng (see his memoirs Chin Peng: My Side of History). But in the film he is known as Ng. This l963 movie is based on the book, THE DURIAN TREE by British writer, Michael Keon. I was an eye-witness to several parts of the film being made in Malaysia. The beginning scene with the helicopter was filmed at the Forest Research Institue of Malaysia at Kepong. The next scene was also filmed in the grounds of FRIM at Bukit Laggong. Others scenes were filmed at the placid Lake Gardens, The Railway Station and the Moorish style Clock Tower Complex in Kuala Lumpur. The beach scene was filmed at Port Dickson, Negri Sembilan state. The various jungle scenes were filmed at Ulu Gombak on the Main Mountain Range of the country. Those were lush virgin rainforest being photographed. The jail scene was made at the famous Pudu Jail where Capucine was incarcerated for the hand geranade in her durain fruit. The rubber estate and rubber tappers at work were filmed on the Kuala Lumpur trunk road to Negri Sembilan. The entire picture was made entirely in Malaysia and within 30 miles of the scenic Kuala Lumpur. But, when the film was finally made and ready to show on the screen, the conservative Malay Government of the late Tunku Abdul Rahman banned it from being seen by Malaysians who might not know the truth of their country's Emergency which involved the guerillas (former anti-Japanese fighters)and the British colonialists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure and romance of the highest order April 3 2011
By D. M. Kavanagh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Watching a 'devil-may-care' William Holden hacking his way through the jungle is reminisent of his turn in "River Kwai"! Here he struggles with divided loyalties among lovers, friends and politicians. With good-looking capable actors,lush exotic location photography, a haunting musical score and equal amounts of suspense,action and romance this one is a winner - lambasted by critics with no regard for the masses "The Seventh Dawn" remains one of my all-time "guilty pleasures".

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific adventure film set in post WWII Asia April 22 2011
By Ironmike - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Splendid cast and little known film that captures the turmoil of post WWII Mayala. Holden is once again perfectly cast as a man who is tired of war and wants to resume his rubber business, but old ties to the local Malayian communist leader draws him back into the violent fold of war. Filmed on location, this little seen film is excellent and finally on DVD. The only film to have British paratroopers making a jungle assault and Vampire jets zooming overhead. Cool. Check it out.

The colonialists promised independence to all Malayans after the Second World War, but broke the promise when they defeated the Jap invaders together with those heoric jungle fighters who bore the brunt of the barbaric invaders! This film is still highly sensitive today in Malaysia which is dominated by the Malay politicians. Though the hero of this story Chin Peng (Ng in the movie)and his five thousand troops had signed a peace treaty between the Malaysian and Thai government in the l980s. Yet Chin Peng and most of his freedom fighters (against the Jap invaders) were still not allow to visit the country for purely negative political reasons. This is a very good movie and there is some truth in what it is being portrayed. I like the main character William Holden. I therefore leave this to the imagination of the viewers. As the truth will set one free! Have fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars A film from 1964, beautifully restored. Sent by Amazon. Always on time and in perfect condition. April 5 2012
By Caroline Armitage - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The 7th Dawn is a film dealing with the insurgency in Malaya, after the Second World War, starring William Holden, Susannah York, Capucine, and several good English actors. It is in very good condition, so must have been restored for the DVD MGM Limited Edition.
It is an informative film, especially for those not familiar with the story of the Communist agitators who were striving to force the British leave South East Asia, Malaya particularly, and the methods they used to achieve their aims. Susannah York plays the daughter of the English Administrator, and although very young, twenty-five at the time, was convincing and her usual beautiful self. William Holden was well cast as the plantation owner, and former war veteran, and the whole film was most enjoyable and believable.

3.0 out of 5 stars This was my war. April 23 2011
By Steve Rainbow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had been searching for this movie for a long time.There has not been much on this subject,either print or film.
My interest in this film,is because I was in that war,from 1955to 1956,a period of 18 months.So thanks to Amazon
I was able to indulge myself.There is another film around called The Planters Wife,which is a lot more authentic
than the 7th dawn.

Steve.
