THE FIFTIES # 588: LEOPOLDO SALCEDO AND AURA AUREA IN "SEKSING-SEKSI (MAPANG-HALINA)" (1959)/ Re-posted



Aura Aurea, dubbed as Brigitte Bardot of the Philippines

Underrated star Aura Aurea, best remembered for her controversial role in equally controversial 1960 movie, Gerry de Leon’s “Huwag Mong Limutin,” started her movie career as Norma Reyes in Everlasting Pictures’ “Laki sa Layaw”(1957). In 1959, she was re-introduced as Aura Aurea in her first starring role in Luis Nolasco Productions’ “Seksing-Seksi (Mapang-halina). “She is his only Weakness, He is her only Strength”… “Craved by Women, Emulated by men” … “Desired by Men, Envied by Women” says the blurb… Dubbed as the most daring picture of the year, the movie had some rough sailing with the censors. It drew crowds when it was open to the public due to the controversy it generated.

PUGO IN "ANG TATAY KONG KALBO" (1963)

I was a bit surprised to see this 1963 black-and-white movie, Ang Tatay Kong Kalbo on TV-cable Cinema One several months back. Popular TV host-comedian Pepe Pimentel, of Kuwarto O Kahon fame, was one of the lead stars who played one of the sons of legendary comic Pugo. Pepe played the role of a bumbling boxer trained by his father Pugo, who happened to have a formulated lotion, the smell of which would make their opponents groggy. Several named stars appeared in cameo roles, including boxing legend Gabriel 'Flash' Elorde.

PEPE PIMENTEL IN "KUARTA O KAHON"- TV SHOW Circa 60s- 90s

Definitely, the longest-running TV game show, Kuarta O Kahon was aired from the 60s to 90s.


Before "Eat Bulaga's" Laban O Bawi or "Wowowee's" Pera O Bayong, there was "Kuarta O Kahon." It was "the game show" for 38 years, starting in 1962.

The man behind it is Mr. Entertainment himself, Pepe Pimentel.
On the landmark "Kuarta o Kahon," he says "It was copied from "Bidding The Box," an American TV show during the 50s. It was originally titled "Mahiwagang Kahon," a prime-time radio show hosted by Jaime dela Rosa and produced by Alto Broadcasting System, which was owned by Antonio Quirino. When CBN bought ABS, they got me to handle the show as host and producer. It was basically a quiz show, where all the participants were professional contestants, meaning they were the same winners in all the other quiz shows. So, after almost two years, the show was cancelled.

"But I believe in it," he says. "No one owned its format, so I decided to produce it myself for KBS in 1962 as "Kuarta O Kahon." I transformed it into a family show, where participants would come from all over the nation. I invited them by mail. Plus, I made sure that the contestants were genuine, and the winners would get their exact prizes."
