In remembrance of "Charlie Chaplin" of Asia, P. Ramlee.

P. Ramlee, was a Malaysian film actor, director, singer, songwriter, composer, and producer. Due to his contributions to the movie and music industry and his literary work, he is often considered the icon of Malay entertainment in Malaysia, Singapore, and Sumatra.

On 29th May 1973, P. Ramlee closed his eyes for the very last time and we had lost a very talented and gifted artiste of all-time. P. Ramlee's death was a shock to the nation, and a sense of collective guilt began to spread nationwide, as prior to his death he had been discredited and rejected by his own nation, citing that he was a "has been" and that his songs and film were no longer marketable. Despite his previous success in the entertainment industry, P. Ramlee died a penniless man, having given away the last of his money to a visitor to the house whom he deemed needed the money more than him. 41 years after his passing, his legacy still remains strong in the Malay community. Let us all pause for a moment, look back and appreciate all of his contributions to the Malay movie and music industry.
