Sitora Harimau Jadian, a long lost P. Ramlee movie

I was in Borders when a book caught my attention.

The title triggered my ancient memories, it's a P. Ramlee movie in 1964, but unfortunately unlike all his other movies, this one is lost in the sands of time. Younger generations will never have the chance to see this, cause it has simply been lost.

Sitora Harimau Jadian is literally translated as Sitora the Weretiger. Western civilization have stories about werewolves but here we have story about weretigers.

This book is republished due to the hard work of Amir Muhammad, who found the classic book while researching about Malay movies. His story can be found here.
