Remember “The Champ”, a film megged by director Franco Zeffirelli? It was released in 1979 and starred Jon Voight, Faye Dunaway and that wonder kid, Ricky Schroder. It was a monster hit in the Philippines and the peps were part of the throng that trooped to the movie houses. Oh, how we cried a river watching this final scene:
Eddie liked the movie so much that he used to ape Ricky Schroder in that death scene. We’re sure hearing the film’s theme song, “If you remember me” by Chris Thompson, would make him and those who saw the film really nostalgic.
