RIP, RAMON REVILLA, SR., 93/ SELECTED FILMOGRAPHY

MANILA - Former Sen. Ramon Revilla Sr. has died, his son and namesake Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr., said Friday.

Revilla Jr., announced the family patriarch's death nearly 2 months after the former senator was brought to the hospital due to breathing problems. 

Revilla Sr. was known as "Hari ng mga Agimat" (King of Amulets) in Philippine showbiz. 
He first suffered a stroke and underwent angioplasty in 2008.

In February 2017, he had a successful heart surgery and was able to celebrate his 90th birthday in March 2017, a star-studded party attended by family and old friends from showbiz and politics.

He underwent another procedure known as Percutaneous Mitral Clip, related to his heart ailment, in June 2017. 

Born Jose Acuna Bautista, the Revilla patriarch was known for his lead roles in classic fantasy films such as "Nardong Putik," "Pepeng Agimat," "Tonyong Bayawak," and "Tiagong Akyat."

His last appearance on the big screen was a cameo in the film "Exodus: Tales from the Enchanted Kingdom" which stars his son and namesake.

Prior to joining showbiz, Revilla Sr. worked in government as a senior intelligence officer and later as head of the Secret Service Unit (now the Customs Intelligence and Investigation Division) of the Bureau of Customs from 1965 to 1972. 

He then entered show business and became a famous actor and producer. He won FAMAS Best Actor in 1973 for the movie "Hulihin Si Tiyagong Akyat" and was Box-Office King in 1979. 

Revilla Sr. started his political career in 1992 when he was elected senator under the administration coalition. He finished two terms in the Senate or until 2004.

======================================================

Billed as 'Ang Mahiwagang Sinderella,' Cofradia was probably inspired by the popular fairy tale character named Cinderella. The 1953 movie was based from a komiks novel created by Dominador Ad. Castillo and appeared on the pages of Mabuhay Komiks in 1952. It is a heart-touching story, as the blurb says, of a girl (played by Gloria Romero) who was afraid to love because---she was black. She becomes the subject of ridicule and humiliation and the butt of jokes, mockery and extreme embarrassments from people around her. But like the fairy tale Cinderella, Cofradia turns into a beautiful young lady with the lighting of a mysterious candle.
