3 March 1957 - Carlos Manga's 'Garotas e samba' features Renata Fronzi and Zé Trindade that would be together again in 1960's 'Marido de mulher boa'.
18 August 1957 - Francisco Eichorn's 'Treze cadeiras' (13 chairs) stars Oscarito but Zé Trindade and Renata Fronzi have good parts in it. 
21st August 1957 - Even though 'Tem boi na linha' (There's a cow on the line) was a Ronaldo Lupo's movie Zé Trindade is actually the 'main event'.
12 October 1958 - Maria Vidal gets top billing but  'O camelô da Rua Larga' is surely a Zé Trindade movie... Nancy Wanderley is always a highlight and Zezé Macedo is indispensable as a pure old lady... Maysa sings 'Ouça' (Listen), her greatest hit ever; Nelson Gonçalves sings 'Escultura' (Sculpture), one of his most impressive hits: show-girl Eloina and breathtaking Julie Joy complete the female entertainers.
23 November 1958 - Eurides Ramos' 'Na corda bamba' joins a circus clown, Arrelia and a urban comedian Zé Trindade; comedian Ema D'Avila add a few gags; her brother comedian Walter D'Avila does a musical number; Elizeth Cardoso & Monsueto Menezes do one of the most elaborate musical numbers ever shot by Brazilians. 
21 February 1960 - 'Entrei de gaiato' paired two of the most popular comedians in the country: Zé Trindade who receives top-billing and Dercy Gonçalves who could draw big crowds to the movies and to the theatres where she kept a string of popular plays going on through the years. This is the movie that shows Moacyr Franco singing 'Me dá um dinheiro aí' which is known as the last Carnaval hit ever. Up until 1960, major recording acts recorded especially for the Carnaval period. Some of those recordings would eventually hit Number One in the charts... but gradually through the 1950s these hits were becoming fewer & fewer until 'Me dá um dinheiro aí' went to the top of the pops in early 1960. That was the last Carnaval hit to get to that position. 
29 February 1960 - J.B. Tanko's 'Entrei de gaiato' is Zé Trindade at his peak... Trindade's name comes on top of that of Dercy Gonçalves and that means something.
5 February 1961 -  it is weird to think 'O viúvo alegre' would turn out to be Zé Trindade's last featured film. Actually, 1961 was arguably Brazilian musical-comedy's last year of production. The reasons for its sudden demise are many, like the rising popularity of television among the population... but I would bet on the political scene which was not conducive to anything good. President Janio Quadros renounces his mandate after 8 months in office in August 1961. The military reactionary try to stop Vice-President João Goulart to become the lawful President of the Nation. Then, out of the blue, Brazil becomes a Parliamentary nation... Not even a musical-comedy could tell Brazil's real history... tragi-comedy doesn't come close.
