"Peyton Place" was nominated for more Oscars that year (mostly because of acting nominations).

Pierre Boulle's other novel about apes was much better.

Pierre Boulle's other novel about apes was much better.

With a much better score, to boot.

MALCOLM ARNOLD really helped this film.

Ironically, my vinyl copy of this film's album has sleeve notes in Japanese.

Who says history is written by the winners?

Have always loved this movie and first bought it in low fi VHS and then hi/fi stereo VHS, then DVD, and then the boxed set on Blu-ray, and a number of LPs and CDs. I have an interesting (modern) Malcolm Arnold collection with revised arrangements of the music from "Kwai," along with music from other movies he scored. Many people who have seen the movie over the years just assume that Arnold wrote "Colonel Bogey's March," which, of course, he didn't. This is one of those favorite movies of childhood, and it helped to cement my great love of film music.

Anyone remember the great tribute to Alec Guiness they did one year at the Oscars, where they showed so many of his roles, and then ended with him muttering something like "What have I done?" from the climactic moment of "Kwai" and then being shot and falling on the plunger for the explosives, and when it explodes the screen zooms out to this checkerboard of many of his movie roles over the years. Wish the Academy would put such very special moments onto DVD and Blu-ray. I think many of us would buy them.

Well, true or not, that's better than other uses I'm sure the distinctive statuette has been employed for over the years!!!

When Tony Palmer was doing the film of Arnolds life, when visiting his home he found the Oscar propping open a door.
I wasnt sure whether it was for this film or if Arnold won anymore.
Pretty certain it was this film.

Malcolm used it as a doorstop. He later gave it to his daughter Katherine, who I believe continues the family tradition.

And didn't win any...
