Elias (Leopoldo Salcedo) and Crisostomo Ibarra (Eddie del Mar)



Crisostomo Ibarra and Elias are the two enigmatic and contrasting heroes of Rizal’s novel, “Noli Me Tangere.” Ibarra is rich and highly educated while Elias is poor and hunted by the authorities. They are both victims of injustices. Both love their native land and wish for her betterment. Elias sees hope in Ibarra and thinks that he will be able to uplift the country from its suffering. The two of them met on several ocassions and once have an animated conversation in which Elias tells Ibarra the following: 



"Without struggle there is no freedom. Without freedom there is no light. You say that you know very little of your country; I believe you. You do not see the forthcoming struggle, you do not see the cloud on the horizon; the struggle begins in the sphere of ideas to come down to the arena which will be dyed in blood. I hear God's voice. Woe unto those who want to resist Him. History has not been written for them!"


Here’s the two exciting and pulsating film clips from Gerry de Leon’s award-winning masterpiece, “Noli Me Tangere,” showing the two protagonists, Ibarra (played by Eddie del Mar) and Elias (Leopoldo Salcedo), in a very vibrant, meaningful and spirited exchanges of ideas and dialogues.

THE SIXTIES # 125: COMEDY LEGENDS PUGO AND BENTOT, SYLVIA LA TORRE, EDDIE SAN JOSE, ROSA AGUIRRE IN "OH SENDANG" (1961): AN ENTERTAINING FUN MOVIE!/ Re-posted



"Oh Sendang" (1961)
LVN Pictures, Inc.
Release Date May 29, 1961/ Dalisay
Story and Screenplay "Beer" Flores
Music F. Buencamino, Jr.
Direction Fred Daluz
Cast Pugo and Bentot, Sylvia La Torre, Eddie San Jose, Rosa Aguirrre, Ric Tierro, Dely Magpayo/ with Willie Sotelo, Liza Moreno and Jose Vergara

Oh Sendang, released in 1961, was one of the two known surviving movies of the well-loved and laughable comic tandem of Pugo and Bentot. The other one was Nukso nang Nukso (1960). The movie, one of the many spin-offs of the highly popular radio program, Sebya Mahal Kita, was one of the many sequels they did under LVN Pictures. It tells of the wacky escapades of the scheming Mang Mariano ‘Nano’ Batecabeza (played by Pugo) and his overgrown son, Bitoy (Bentot). The movie dwells on situation comedy rather than the typical slapstick and toilet humor. Here are the two-part film clips where writer “Beer” Flores used the plot’s twists and turns to make the audience laugh.
