In celebration of Father's Day and as a tribute to Dolphy, let us recall some films in which he played father roles. The titles include the word 'tatay' or 'father.'
Hataw Tatay Hataw was released in theaters on February 3, 1994. A Regal Films production, Dolphy was supported by his son Vandolph, Sheryl Cruz, Zoren Legaspi, and Nanette Medved.
Wanted Perfect Father was an entry to the 1994 Metro Manila Film Festival, opening in theaters on December 25 that year. This Star Cinema production also features Edu Manzano, Babalu, and Dawn Zulueta.
Dolphy was again supported by Vandolph in Father en Son, an entry to the 1995 Metro Manila Film Festival.
