PAQUITO DIAZ: THE 'BAD GUY' AS THE LEAD ACTOR

Paquito Diaz (b.May 28, 1932), Francisco Bustillos Diaz in real life, was a popular basketball star during his pre-acting years playing for the FEU in his high school days and Ateneo during his collegiate years. He was discovered by Cirio H. Santiago, a friend and teammate, into the movies and was offered a bit role in the movie, Mr. Basketball (1958). Diaz has that x-factor that sets him apart from other character actors during his time. His mean, daunting and intimidating looks are some of the traits he had to last him five decades in the industry. There were some points in his illustrious movie career that he was tapped to do lead roles.

Mula saang pelikula po hango ang larawan niyang may kulay?

May naalala akong napanood na "Pamilya Dimagiba"(si Andy Poe yata ang producer)...may nakita yata ako sa isang dyaryong pinambalot, ngunit di ko napanood-"Oras ng Kagitingan"? Tama po ba?

Salamat ng marami.

Tama ka dyan, Totoybato! May ginawa nga siyang pelikulang "Pamilya Dimagiba" noong 1982 kung saan nakasama niya si Andy Poe, Freddie Webb, Abe King, Atoy Co, Efren Reyes Jr. at Gabriel 'Flash' Elorde at ang "Oras ng Kagitingan" noong 1986.

Pasensya ka na di ko alam kung saan pelikula hango ang larawan niyang may kulay. Salamat po!

Yung "Daddy Goon" lang napnood ko eh. Early 90's yata yun. Pero may napanood ako si Max Alvarado ang bida. Di ko lang alam ang title.

Medyo off-topic, pero baka alam niyo lang yung sagot, sir Video 48.

I'm trying to remember the name of the movie where Romy Diaz uttered his famous line, "Veronica! Yan ang gusto ko sa babae, yung lumalaban! Nyahahaha!"

It would be great if you can tell me the name of the movie. Thanks.
