Şaban Pabucu Yarım
This 87-minute-long comedy film (released in 1985) was one in a running series -- all of which starred Kemal Sunal as the artless Şaban. The figurative translation of this movie's title is 'Come out and play with us Şaban'. It's rooted in the ditty that Turkish children chant in a group to entice a house-bound friend to come out to play with them. Starting with a Person's Name (in this case Şaban) the ditty goes: Şaban pabucu yarım, Çık dışarıya oynayalım. That bit of childish banter means: Hey Şaban with the half-shoe, come outside, let's play.

Kartal Tibet was a swashbuckling hearthrob in his acting days, but when he turned to directing he was instantly successful with comedy films. Tibet was one of Kemal Sunal's favorite comedy film directors, as exemplified by the two following posters, and his comedies often included the character-actress Adile Naşit in the cast...
|Plot Summary: In this particular comedy film of the Şaban-series, our guilelss namesake hero (played by Kemal Sunal) can't hold a job for love or money and is forced to live together with his older sister-in-law, Adile Hanım (played by Adile Naşit). Adile Hanım is very fond of the neghborhood children and builds a park for them in the garden next to her home. But the happy scenario is shortlived -- because news surfaces that a soulless building contractor is making ready to sieze and raze Adile Hanım's home and garden to make way for a modern apartment building. That's when Şaban and best friend Ali get cracking, take matters in hand, and save the day.|

|Şener Şen Filmography
Movie film-clip: Şener Şen (and Şehnaz Dilan) in the opening scene of the original version of Aşık Oldum (I Fell in Love, a 1.8MB Windows Media Video [.WMV] file) -- a blatent imitation of the opening scene of Gene Wilder's The Woman In Red, though an equally entertaining one. Turkish religious-right AKP government censors cut the entire scene from the version that appeared on Cine5 TV, thus removing the main plot point of the film. Nice work RTÜK!
Conventional and erotik Turkish movie star, born 1948 -- real first name, Zora. Comitted suicide in May 1992.
I've finally succeeded in leaving this disgusting life. Don't bury me as a Muslim. Wrap me in a white bathrobe and cover me over in my grave, letting no one see my face or body.
