Let's Pray For The Repose Of The Soul Of National Artist Eddie Romero

OUR SYMPATHY to the family of the late National Artist for Film Eddie Romero. His son, Director Joey Romero (married to Vivian Condez), reported his passing on Tuesday at 9 PM due to natural causes. He was 88 years old. He started as writer and director in 1947 when he was only 23 years old in movies like “Kamay ng Diyos” and “Kaaway ng Bayan”. At Sampaguita Pictures, he did “Sabas, Ang Barbaro” and “El Indio” with the late Pancho Magalona. For Premiere Productions, he did “Man on the Run” and “Pitong Gabi sa Paris”.

He also directed films made in English for the American market, like “Raiders of Leyte Gulf”, “Beast of Yellow Night”, “Black Mama, White Mama”, “Day of the Trumpet”, “Twilight People”, etc. In 1976, he made his masterpiece, “Ganito Kami Noon, Paano Kayo Ngayon” that won so many awards. His other acclaimed works after that are “Sinong Kasiping, Sinong Kapiling”, “Banta ng Kahapon”. “Agila”, “Hari sa Hari, Lahi sa Lahi” and the mini-series “Noli Me Tangere”. His last film was “Faces of Love” in 2006. Let’s pray for the repose of his soul.
