Dolphy - the curtain has fallen

Rodolfo Vera Quizon was one of the last stars who crossed over from the vaudeville era of the 1940s to mainstream movies and television. Discovered for the movies by Sampaguita Pictures in the 1950s, he played support and then lead roles in countless movies and TV shows.
Among his most memorable performances were in “Ang Tatay Kong Nanay,” “Facifica Falayfay,” and “Markova.”
On television, Dolphy turned into a pop icon by way of “Buhay Artista” and “John en Marsha.”

[Editor’s comment:] Even as a tourist who stayed only 2 weeks in the Philippines, you have seen Dolphy at least once and you laughed. I compare Dolphy with Fernandel, the French actor. If you have seen them once, you will never in your life forget their expression, their smile. 

Now it’s more fun in Heaven – thanks Dolphy.
