Esa Pakarinen and Masa Niemi were these fantastic characters, Pekka Puupää and Pätkä for 13 times.Pekka Ja Pätkä Neekereinä (1960) by Aarne Tarkas was the very last one of them.There these two blacken their faces and become great reporters.It made me laugh more than once.Esa and Masa were born to play these guys.There are many other good people in this movie.Siiri Angerkoski as Justiina and Armas Jokio as Pikkarainen were perfect for their roles.Anja Hatakka, who is familiar from two earlier Pekka & Pätkä movies plays Sirpa Lahtinen.Toivo Mäkelä does a fun role as Dr. Pujoparta.Tommi Rinne plays Ville Tinttinen.Pentti Irjala is Editor-in-chief Körmy.Uljas Kandolin is Mr.Mötiäinen.Leo Jokela is Puli-Ville.The big man Leo Lastumäki plays a Bum asking for cigarettes.Esko Salminen is Olli.Magician Solmu Mäkelä does some magic.Eila Pienimäki does some singing.T.J. Särkkä said this would be the final movie and it probably would have been.But we never get to know for sure since Masa Niemi committed suicide after this movie.I'm reading at the moment the biography of Masa Niemi written by Arto Pietilä.It shows us the tragedy of this fine comedian.He was one of the kind.They both were, Esa and Masa.
