Let us not forget also Robbie Tan whose Seiko Films churned out many bold movies in the 80's. He was responsible for the success ( and eventual demise?) of Stella Strada whose sexiness, IMHO, nobody can surpass even up to this day. I can think of Kirot, Init and Puri as the more popular Stella movies. Anna Marie Guttierez also made her mark not only in the sizzling Skorpio Nights and Unfaithful Wife but in the sexy dramatic movies Di Maghilom ang Sugat and Takaw-Tukso. Takaw-Tukso remains one of my favorites because it starred Anna Marie and the divine Jacklyn Jose and they really acted well. The bold genre produced so many hot stars who can act- Cristina Crisol, Maureen Mauricio, Ma. Isabel Lopez, Rowena Ruiz, Sarsi Emmanuel, Pepsi Paloma, and even Lala Montelibano. The bold genre was ushered by the ECP , a brainchild of Imee Marcos. It was also, IMO, a way to appease the masses whose discontent with the Marcos regime had been growing at an alarming speed. I remember the movie Turuang Apoy (Eddie Garcia, Daniel Fernando, Frtiz Ynfante, Lyka Ugarte, etc) which was shown in commercial theaters with all the nudity and acts of perversion because the film is anti-communist! I also recall that I was watching Senswal ( Barbara Benitez, Hero Bautista, directed by : Marilou Diaz Abaya on the first day of EDSA 1. When Cory assumed the presidency, all hell broke loose in the movie industry what with the very progressive Armida S. Reyna heading the MTRCB. Bold movies were selling like hot cakes and independent producers had their heydays. Producers of Arrayy, Tag-Init Nagpuputik ang Langit, Tonting and His Hidden Wealth were so happy with the profits they were getting. But as they say, good things never last. The doom of the bold genre started with the showing of the now cult-classic Sabik (George Estregan, Joy Sumilang, Gino Antonio), which showed penetration. It was followed by Materiales Fuertes ( Mark Joseph, Myrna Castillo, directed by Tata Esteban) which also featured the lead stars in various stages of copulation. So many others followed suit and the civil society roared in disapproval. And to arrest this penetration explosion, whom you gonna call? Manoling Morato. The swashbuckling hero cut the bold movies' ugly head and veered the movie industry away from the road to perdition to the artistic road of helming massacre movies.
