Heloisa Helena listens to Catalano in 1957's 'O boca de ouro' - a typical Brazilian high-society milieu. 
10 February 1958 - 'É de chuá' is one of my favourite musical comedies... a this point great actress-comedienne Renata Fronzi was almost always included in Ankito & Grande Otelo's flicks. 

7 July 1958 - Victor Lima's 'De pernas p'ro ar' was another box-office winner with Ankito, Grande Otelo, Renata Fronzi, Renato Restier & the usual gang. 

11 October 1959 - great musical comedy in which Nelly Martins is 'Garota enxuta' and shares top billing with singer Agnaldo Rayol. With more than the average quantity of musical numbers: Morgana sings 'Conselho'; Agostinho dos Santos accompany himself at the piano and croons 'A ternura que guardo comigo'; Ivon Curi  presents 'Menina chega p'ra lá'; Rinaldo Calheiros sings a samba-canção; old-timer Orlando Silva sings 'Jardineira' while old-style Carnaval old-style is celebrated throughout the flick with old hits like 1914's 'Ô abre alas' performed by Grande Otelo, Vera Regina; Trio Irakitan sing 'Touradas em Madrid' & others; 'Cordão dos puxa-sacos' and 'Eu sou o pirata da perna de pau' are also featured. Nelly & Agnaldo sing 'Pelas estradas do tempo'; old timer Marion sings 'Samba no morro da Mangueira'; Emilinha Borba shows up in a night-gown & sings 'Em meus braços';

21 February 1960 - Ankito's 14th movie as a top-billing star. Victor Lima's 'Pé na tabua' with Grande Otelo and Renata Fronzi plus Nely Martins, bad-man Carlos Tovar, Radio Nacional crooner Bill Farr, rock'n'roller Carlos Imperial and the King of Rumba Ruy Rey.
15 May 1960 - less than 3 months after 'Pé na tabua' a new Ankito & Grande Otelo flick 'Pistoleiro bossa nova' to cash on in the wave created over the so-called Bossa Nova, the new Brazilian rhythm that would conquer the world in a couple of years. The supporting cast is almost the same of the previous movie: Renata Fronzi, Carlos Tovar... with the inclusion of bad-man Renato Restier, mouse-faced Wilson Grey and the baddest men of all Aurelio Teixeira.
15 April 1961 -
