Zaiton Abdul Hamid

..Zaiton, in her hey-days..


..as a kid I was in loved with her..as a youth, she was the woman of my dreams..now in my old age, I believed that I am still a little bit infatuated with her...


..present day..pic taken from her cousin's webpage..

.and she doesn't even have traffic stopper looks..or the body in the class of Marilyn Monroe..but on the silver screen, no matter what roles she played, she always managed to exude wholesomeness..something genuine... an aura of innocence with a captivating smile that is somehow appealing and sexy..a sexiness not of the wanton kind..but a demure sexiness..

..there is something kampongish in her, akin to a flower, melur, that village belles decorate their hair buns with..she teased with a pout and the male audience sighed..

..the first time I saw her was in the movie 'Hang Tuah' as Tun Teja..but it was in other subsequent roles... from Anakku Sazali to Seniman Bujang Lapok..that she shone..known simply as Zaiton, pakmat will always be a fan..



..when movies were in black and white...and heroes were named Hassan and heroines Ani..

...nicely put, pakmat...

Who wouldn't love this sweet darling of malay movies?
My personal favourite dialog of hers is the one from Bujang Lapok...
"amboi mak, sejak berkawan dengan Mrs Lim... 'skipping' lon-don berabuk!"

Muahaha!

pakmat i remember the scene involving p ramlee and zaiton that was uploaded into youtube that you sent me...zaiton was the primadonna of her era. those were the days when our movie stars were known only by their first name or nickname/stage name...
