Matimtiman Cruz

Matimtiman Cruz was a Filipina actress under the now defunct Sampaguita Pictures, who later became a comedian. If the present showbiz world in the Philippines has Ai-Ai delas Alas and Pokwang, Matimtiman Cruz was among the favorite and highly paid comedians in the country in the early fifties. She probably ranked second only to the comedy team of Chichayand Aruray. Comedy in the movies and radio was a hit after World War II as the country was yet reeling off from the massive devastation of the war. Matimtiman often portrayed the role of an erratic housemaid who was easily frightened and uttered funny inanities at the slightest provocation.
