Ang “Maga Kuwento ni Lola Basyang” ni Severino Reyes
Ang “Pedro Matapang,” isa sa “Mga Kuwnto
ni Lola Basyang” ni Severino Reyes, nasa
taklob-pahina ng ikalawang isyu ng Tagalog
Klasiks na lumabas noong Hulyo 30, 1949.
          Unang nabasa sa magasing Liwayway si Lola Basyang, isang matandang babaeng nagsasalaysay ng mga kuwento sa mga nakikinig na mga bata. Ito ay nilikha ni Severino Reyes (1861-1942), sa seryeng “Mga Kuwento ni Lola Basyang” na nagsimula noong Mayo 25, 1925. Ang unang kuwento ay ang “Plautin ni Periking,” na nagsasaysay ng pakikipagsapalaran ng isang batang may mahiwagang pluta (magic flute) at lumilipad na latag (flying carpet). Halos lahat ng mga kuwento ay patungkol sa mga alamat at istoryang klasiko, at mga kakaibang romansa, kababalaghan at pakikipagsapalaran.  Karaniwang may dalawang nagtutunggaling mga karakter ang kuwento na lumalayon at sumasagisag sa kabutihan at kasamaan. Laging may kapupulutang aral sa katapusan ng kuwento. Natigil ito nang yumao si Reyes noong Setyembre 15, 1942. Umabot ng 407 ang bilang ng mga kuwento na isinaysay ng karakter na si Lola Basyang mula 1925 hanggang 1942.
          Sa pamamagitan ng anak ni Severino Reyes na si Pedrito, muling lumabas ang “Mga Kuwento ni Lola Basyang” sa mga pahina ng Tagalog Klasiks bilang mga kuwentong iginuhit (illustrated stories) sa pagsisimula sa sirkulasyon ng komiks na ito noong Hulyo 16, 1949. Unang lumabas sa Tagalog Klasiks ang kuwentong “Maryang Makiling.” Nasundan ito ng “Pedro Matapang” (Hulyo 30, 1949), “Prinsipeng Unggoy” (Agosto 13, 1949), “Ang Sirena sa Ilog Pasig” (Setyembre 10, 1949), atbp. Ang mga kuwento ay inilarawan ng mga batikang dibuhista kabilang sina Maning de Leon, Nestor Redondo, Jesus Ramos, Jess Jodloman at Ruben Yandoc.
          Si Lola Basyang ay ibinatay ni Reyes kay Donya Gervasia Guzman de Zamora, ang matriarka ng pamilyang Zamora na naninirahan sa Quiapo. Ayon kay Reyes, si Donya Basyang ay lagi niyang nakikitang nagsasalaysay ng mga kuwento sa kaniyang mga apo tuwing matatapos ang hapunan. Ang eksenang ito ang ginamit ni Reyes upang mabuo ang konsepto ng “Mga Kuwento ni Lola Basyang.”
          Simula ng 1950s, naging serye rin sa radio ang likhang ito ni Reyes. Nang lumaon, naging batayan din ito ng mga palabas sa television at pelikula.

Catwoman as portrayed by Michelle Pfeiffer
(for the film Batman Returns) on the cover of
Flicks Magazine July 1992 issue.
 
Larawang Tribiya
          Maraming mga sikat na Hollywood actress ang pinagpilian para gumanap bilang Catwoman sa pelikulang Batman Returns (1992) subalit si Michelle Pfeiffer ang mapalad na napili. Ilan sa mga ito ay sina Lena Olin at Madonna. Ninais naman nina Sean Young at Susan Sarandon na makuha ang papel subalit hindi sila pinalad. Inalok din ang pagganap bilang Catwoman kina Demi Moore at Nicole Kidman subalit pareho silang tumanggi. Unang napili si Annette Bening para sa papel na ito subalit buntis siya ng pagkakataong yaon kaya pinalitan siya ni Pfeiffer.
          Ang tatlong milyong dolyar na ibinayad kay Pfeiffer ay higit na malaki ng dalawang milyon kaysa inalok kay Bening.
          Sa anim na buwan na ginawa ang Batman Returns, 60 Catwoman costumes ang nagamit ni Pfeiffer na ang bawat isa ay nagkakahalaga ng 1,000 dollars.
          Isang bagay ang ginawa ni Pfeiffer sa pelikula na marahil ay hindi kayang gawin ng ibang pinagpiliang aktres – ito ay ang pagsubo ng buhay na ibon sa kaniyang bibig.
