Eddie Ilarde on big screen

REMEMBER WHEN? - Danny Dolor - The Philippine Star

Although Eddie Ilarde was primarily known as a radio-TV celebrity (and later politician), he also made several movies, mostly based on his shows like Kahapon Lamang and Student Canteen.

One of these movies was Dear Eddie circa 1963, inspired by the thousands of letters Eddie received, mostly asking advice on affairs of the heart.

Eddie has no less than drama queen Charito Solis for leading lady in Dear Eddie, which co-starred Gloria Sevilla and Lalaine Bennett, who was the first Filipina to become a finalist in the Miss Universe beauty pageant (fourth runner-up). Featured in the movie were Eddie’s Student Canteen co-hosts: Leila Benitez, Bobby Ledesma and Pepe Pimentel.

The popular singers of the era appeared in cameo roles, among them: 4 Notes, Tiongco Bros., Skylarks, Silahis Trio and Conchita Peñalosa. — RKC
