First movie with Uuno Turhapuro

In 1973 Ere Kokkonen directed and Spede Pasanen wrote the first Uuno Turhapuro movie which was followed with many others.Vesa-Matti Loiri plays this character who looks like a bum with his dirty undershirt, messy hair and bad teeth.Marjatta Raita is his wife Elisabeth Turhapuro.Tapio Hämäläinen and Marita Nordberg were later seen as her parents but were missing in this first movie.Spede Pasanen plays Härski Hartikainen and Simo Salminen engineer Sörsselssön. Uuno movies may not be the greatest comedy movies ever made but they still are very enjoyable to watch.The Finnish persons have enjoyed watching these movies for nearly 30 years.Uuno is part of the culture of Finland.Unfortunately the maker and actor of Uuno movies Pertti "Spede" Pasanen died on a heart attack last Friday the 7th day of September at the golf club.He was 71 years old.With him we lost a genius of Finnish comedy and many people miss him. The first Uuno Turhapuro is a Finnish comedy classic which is filled with funny moments.The latest Uuno movie was made in 1998 and it was called Johtaja Uuno Turhapuro-pisnismies.It didn't do as good as the earlier Uunos.Maybe the people had gotten a little tired with this character.I hope they get their interest back and Uuno Turhapuro comes back someday.But there would be something missing in these movies.And that would be Spede Pasanen.
