There was a movie during Morato's time that has a double meaning but the censor's chief didn't object. It was the most disgusting title that I ever heard of.......DILIGIN MO NG SUKA ANG UHAW NA LUMPIA.   :o

Diligin mo ng Hamog ang Uhaw na Lupa was the title of a Joseph Estrada and Gloria Diaz movie from the late '70's

;D Yeah these are the titles i still clearly remember and still are very controversial to me, hence the desire to watch, but now another case that we all say -- "SAYANG!!"  ::)

these movies may not be the greatest Filipino films ever made but is still a huge part of our cinematic history hence they should all be archived for them to be watched by a new generation of film enthusiasts.

unfortunately most of these films are not available anymore... i remember in the 80's Trigon Home Video released Celso Ad Castillo's Nympha on video. most of the other films during this era such as Batuta Ni Dracula, Saging Ni Pacing & Ang Bukid Ay Basa are not available in any format.

Was Castillo's NYMPHA at par with Gosiengfiao's remake with Alma Moreno? Both deals with uncontrollable desires thru  points of view of a woman.

Two movies come in my mind: Sabik which featured mainstream actor George Estregan doing hard porn (unprotected, mind you) and Macho Dancer which I believe 9correct me if I'm wrong) was the first pinoy film to show non-explicit gay sex scenes.

Gosiengfiao's Nympha is not a remake of Celso Ad Castillo's noir film. they're two different stories. both movies deal with a woman's uncontrollable desire but Castillo's was a far better film. it's a serious exploration of sexuality while Gosingfiao's was pure camp.

Sabik was just one more than a handful of pene movies that came out during the mid 80's. George Estregan's first foray into these type of movies was Hindi Mapigil Ang Init with Myra Manibog.

Macho Dancer wasn't the first Filipino film to feature non explicit gay sex scenes (although i think they were quite graphic at the time) Brocka's Tubog Sa Ginto had gay sex scenes that would rival movies like Sibak or even Burlesk King...

Macho Dancer--at least the print I saw--had this scene where a row of the dancers were playing with themselves onstage. I don't know if this is in any present copy of the film...

the scene you mentioned Noel is in the smuggled print now part of MOMA's permanent collection but is also the same print used in the dvd released by Strand & also in a pristine Director's Masterpiece edition available from Viva Video.

I just saw Brocka's TUBOG SA GINTO last night. Eddie Garcia should be commended for taking a risk for that kind of role! Man, sure its tame by today's standard but I considered that a breakthrough in his entire filmography.

Did it suffer from rough sailing with the censors?

Eddie's dressed up in several films. Much prefer this to Brokeback Mountain.

Eddie Garcia was also excellent in gender-bending comic roles. Was TUBOG the first Filipino film that deals with homosexuality, Noel?

It was unusual also for Lea Prods. to produce such kind of film.

it's kinda weird when at the end credits of Tubog Sa Ginto it said from LEA Productions A Proud Tradition For Wholesome Entertainment! there's nothing wholesome about Tubog...  ;)

We were dealing with homosexuality as far back as Jack en Jill, in 1954.

I specifically recall that scene when I watched it in the theater. I've been told that several days after, that scene was omitted.

My mom will surely freak out when she see TUBOG. But she's cool sometimes, she sat with me from beginning to end of ORO. And she loves GUMISING KA, MARUJA.

When the logo of Lea Prods came out, I nearly fall off from the couch.  ;D

she probably would... it was daring inspite of the fact that it was released in 1971. why did you nearly fall off the couch after seeing the LEA Productions logo?  ;)

As you have said, its weird, because I know they mostly produced wholesome movies. It was risky on their part.

I saw that Celso Ad Castillo's Snake Sisters is showing in Ever Gotesco cinemas. I'm just wondering if it's worth it to brave the less than perfect cinemas of Ever Gotesco to catch the film?

Don't bother oggs, it will surely be mangled by the MTRCB. And Gotesco Cinema's sucks now.

I haven't seen SNAKE SISTERS, but I heard some good reviews about it. And its the time when Celso Ad Castillo's visual genius was on its peak when he made the film.

SILIP (Elwood Perez)

Elwood Perez is no stranger to skin flicks. SILIP remains his most shocking, bizarre and exploitative film penned by the respectable Ricky Lee. Bad movie that you will love or hate due to excess nudities and gore thrown in. Cashing on the ECP craze during the 80's, I presume this was shown uncut at the now ghostly Manila Film Center which showed the rivalry between Ma. Isabelle Lopez & Sarsi Emmanuelle. The acting, the loud annoying musical score by Lutgardo Labad made this a Z-movie. Where else can you find Lopez teaching cathecisms to children and holding her lusts to stud Mark Joseph with no underwear at all? Move over, Sharon Stone! :D

Sarsi Emanuelle plays the liberated type who comes back to her childhood barrio and Lopez is the conservative one. The plot became more complicated because of Myra Manibog and the children who adore Lopez, who cares about the plot anyway? One of the barrio lass was killed, accusing Lopez as the killer and a lunatic. Hang on for the truly mad sequence in the history of erotic films in which Lopez & Emmanuelle are tied in all their naked glory by the towns folk. But instead of the men saving them, they raped the two barrio lass! Were there redeeming values in this film? Yes, folks there are! At least equality exists among the lead protagonists since Lopez, Emmanuelle and Joseph all suffered the same fate, with the exception of Joseph, the most cruel one. And hey, there's the value of friendship.

With movies like this no wonder, Philippine Cinema would surely rise from the grave.  ;D

Out of curiosity, what was the first local bold film to ever feature lesbian scenes? My friend was arguing with me that the film that started it was "Lord, Give me a lover" and "Heartache City". These movies starred Maria Isabel Lopez according to him.

Do anyone of you know which movie contained the first lesbian scene? If there is, where can we get hold of these rare treasures.

Thanks
