    Dolphy at Vic, nag-duet sa tribute ng Dos

    By: Nel Alejandrino

    BASE sa attendance ng senior stars na dumalo sa tribute ng ABS-CBN para kay Dolphy sa Meralco Theater noong Huwebes ng gabi, halos lahat pala ng mga artistang popular in their time ay nakapareha ng ace comedian sa pelikula.

    Consider: Susan Roces, Daisy Romualdez, Jean Saburit, Delia Razon and Imelda Ilanan, among others.

    Si Imelda, who appeared in three movies with Dolphy, ay kararating lang from Shanghai, China, where she’s now based with husband Ben Avanceña (president ng Johnson & Johnson China, Korea at Taiwan).

    She’s in town with only son, Misha, who needs to have his student visa renewed.

    Twenty-year-old Misha is in college in Madrid, Spain, where he’s taking up a course in Communication. Sa China nagtapos ng high school si Misha.

    Ayon kay Imelda, Misha would have wanted to study Theater Arts either in London or Switzerland. Kumuha raw ito ng entrance exam sa dalawang schools.

    Pero, mas nauna raw dumating ang abiso from the school in Madrid, kaya, nag-decide si Misha na roon na lang mag-aral.

    Her daughter, Maricel Laxa, meanwile, has finished her P.H.D. in Family and Child Development in U.P.

    Married to Anthony Pangilinan, Maricel still occassional appears on TV. She has a number of commercials, just like her two children, who endorse a paracetamol and a healthy drink for children.

    When called onstage to say something, Dolphy almost lost his balance while doing a dance number with Willie Revillame. Tuloy, ninerbiyos ang anak ni Dolphy na si Sahlee Quizon, who was seated next to Imelda.

    For one who is 80 (he marked his birthday July 25), lucid na lucid pa si Dolphy.

    He can still recall how he started in showbiz. Nagsimula raw siya as a dancer. Na-discover niya ang kanyang talent sa pagpapatawa when the late Tugo, other half of the comedy team Tugo and Pugo during the pre and post-war days, requested him in one palabas to be his comedy partner dahil wala si Pugo.

    Henceforth, pinag-aralan daw niya ang comedy timing ng dalawa. In no time, naging “Golay” na siya onstage.

    It was when he signed up with Sampaguita Pictures that he started using the screen name, Dolphy. His real name is Rodolfo.

    It was the late Pancho Magalona (father of rapper Francis Magalona), who brought him to Dr. Jose Perez, owner and producer of Sampaguita Pictures.

    But more than being the undisputed Comedy King, Dolphy is well-known for his romantic liaisons with several beautiful girls or ladies, a number of whom are the mothers of his 17 children.

    Sa kanyang speech, Dolphy thanked all the girls he had romanced via a song popularized by Julio Iglesias, To All the GIrls I’ve Loved Before, which he did with Vic Sotto.

    Incidentally, Dolphy and Vic are teamed up for the first time in Dobol Trobol.

    * * *

    ALSO in the audience and whose presence was highly acknowledged by Dolphy was former President Joseph ‘Erap’ Estrada, who came with senator-son, Jinggoy Estrada.

    It was President Erap who requested all the movie star-guests to go on stage, when Susan Roces joined Dolphy and ABS-CBN top guns Gabby Lopez and Charo Santos.

    The tribute was truly a most fitting one for somebody of Dolphy’s stature.

    Mabuhay ka, Dolphy
