dragonInn…….今年康城影展將於5月14至25日舉行。「Cannes Classics」部分選映多齣修復作品,包括胡金銓導演的《龍門客棧》。大會簡介如下:

DRAGON INN by King Hu (1967, 1h51)

…….去年香港電影資料館舉行胡金銓作品展,我才正式看畢《龍門客棧》。該館那回亦得力於台北電影資料館協助,但不清楚映的是否修復版(可能不是),但能夠一看,也很高興。戲相當吸引,故事的鋪陳,氣氛的營造等,皆引人入勝。那天頗意外(因場刊沒提),館方邀請到石雋擔任嘉賓,與觀眾懷緬舊事。

…….他提及,片中描述的大西北背景,當年無法親赴當地攝製,細心如胡金銓,在台灣覓尋了一處較為脗合的荒山,營造客棧孤立的氛圍。直至1992年,徐克拍攝的《新龍門客棧》,才有機會把大漠景致影入鏡頭。石雋笑言徐克大概隔20年,便拍攝一次《龍門客棧》,上一回就是2011年的《龍門飛甲》。

…….提到《龍門客棧》的票房佳績,石雋也很欣慰,指影片在東南亞地區皆賣座鼎盛。筆者幼年居於澳門麗聲戲院對街,家人說此戲院長年冷清,唯獨放映《龍門客棧》及《盲俠》,竟出現輪候戲票人龍的奇觀。大概是口碑的力量,整個氣氛叫你不得不去看一看。

…….電影於1968年8月1日在香港全線公映。之前已映了兩遍午夜場,銷情甚佳。電影由邵氏取得香港的放映權,排在其雙線放映。當時邵氏麾下共13院,平日分為兩條院線,放映其出品的電影。這一回雙線聯映,映了11天,票房已達150萬,最終收約240萬票房,稱為「破盡紀錄」。

下圖:《龍門客棧》於邵氏雙線公映當天,戲院包括:(一)娛樂、荷李活、黃金、京華、麗華、樂都、亞洲;(二)倫敦、國民、國賓、皇宮、明聲、國際。

  1. 很可惜,當年沒有進戲院看過!

  2. WE can see in the 60s, even a big movie like this was not shown in the New Territories, not even in new areas like Kwun Tong. However, 3 in Shamshuipo (黃金,皇宮、明聲) and they are very closely located. hhpy

  3. 國民、皇宮、明聲、國際,以前都是粵語片戲院,設備相對簡陋。自六十年代下旬,粵語片院線陸續崩潰後,前映粵語片的戲院要另謀出路,裝修後加入國語片院線,是其中之一。灣仔的國民,樓下本是木椅,並不坐得舒服。裝修後,改為沙發椅。小弟住灣仔,經常路過裝修後的國民,但提不起興趣買票入內看戲。

    • 謝謝兩位的介紹, 尤其有親身經歷, 難得難得.

      • I have no chance to visit these 4 cinemas. My brother has been to 國際 in the 80s when it was showing GH’s movies. He said it was fitted with wooden seats too and he could hear the jumbo jets flying past during the movie. He told me not to bother. So the only wooden seat cinema I had visited was Nam Cheong as I told Raymond last time.

  4. 筲箕灣的永華戲院樓下都是木椅,但屬坐得舒服的木椅。開幕初期,先父帶我去過一次,看日本片『秦始皇』。

    • My mum said she had visited Kwong Chee and Yaumatei in late 50-60s as both were fitted with wooden seats. She also said Yaumatei had no proper screen at the beginning and the movie was projected on the wall. I have no evidence on this one. Winner did look like a decent cinema from some old photos.

      • 灣仔的東方戲院,樓下都是坐木椅。1954年才換成沙發椅!

        又,小弟曾看過一篇文章云:油麻地平安戲院[Alhambra theatre]前座坐的是籐椅。可惜,迄今仍未找到這篇文章重看!

        • Wow… we can see thing changes. One in Edinburgh fitted with armchairs, 2/3 seater sofas like those at home. You also have foot stools. However, the problem was that I didn’t feel like watching movies there. Other patrons bought in picnics and white wine. That was too causal for me to watch a movie! hhpy

  5. 在德福HMV看到龍門客棧的台灣版DVD,售價$135港元。

    • 在香港買台灣電影的影碟頗不易,在百老匯電影中心的店和誠品亦只見到一點點。曾想找陳坤厚的「結婚」,卻找不到。
