Redford White filmography

“The Funny World Of Redford White

from Simon Santos’ Video 48 blog

The first time I saw him was in a TV sitcom, “Iskul Bukol,” sometime in 1979 as Mang Temi’s (Bing Angeles) househelp and cafeteria waiter. He has a very white complexion with white hair. I don’t know his real name, but he was known as Redford White, probably taken from a popular Hollywood actor, Robert Redford and White because of his extraordinary physical features. I would sense that time that he could succeed as a comedian because of his knack for comedy--- his great sense of humor and impeccable timing in delivering jokes. True enough, he was doing one roles after another, even starring in a lead roles, in such hit movies as Boni & Klayd (1981), Darakula (1982), Hee-man: Master of None (1983), Billy the Kid and the Sunshine Gid (1984), Swak (1985), Johnny Rambo Tan-go (1985) and Johnny Rocky Tan-go (1986). He continued his slew of successes with Buddy en Sol and a string of movies in the '90s, as well various shows this decade, including the hit TV series Kokey.

Many thanks as always to Simon and his endless fountain of pure Pinoy pleasure!

  1. I suposse you got this questoin frequently, but... is there any retailer store to order some of this online?

    Johnny Tan-Go Rambo was a superhit in home video in Spain... Some of this movies were released too, but some are totally new for me.

  2. Hi Jose,

    I think you already know the answer...the bulk of the Philippines' trash treasures are gone forever! Only a few make it to VCD or DVD release in the Philippines (Redford White's A Man Called Tolongges, Hee-Man, Parrot Unit for instance) and the dubbed-into-English export titles are generally floating around the grey market, having disappeared after their initial VHS release in the Eighties.

    However, drop me an email and I'll try to point you in the right direction:

    Cheers and thanks for reading,


  3. Many many Redford white's movies have been TV broadcasted during the last months in CINEMA ONE, one of the filipino movie channels from the cable Tv in the Philippines. Need to say the movies they broadcasted were from the first 90's.
    They usually re-broadcast them. This also happens with many movies from Rene Requiestas...the ones he played without Joey De Leon are broadcasted repeatly in this channel during morning time philippines time.

  4. One of my few regrets was that I never had a chance to work with Redford. A very funny guy! Another great post Andrew!

  5. If you did, you would be more popular in Spain than you are, Nick!!!! hehehehehehehe. I remember my teen years when I used to go to the video rentala every weekend & I saw dozens of your movies with Mike Monti there!....old good times!

  6. Hey Nick...Thanks for the feedback. Two months til I hit Manila running! See you soon, Andrew

  7. Cipriano M. Cermeño A.K.A Redford White, passed away today July 25, 2010 @ 6:47am... please let us offer a prayer for him....
