LIPAD, DARNA, LIPAD! Touted as the best Darna movie ever made directed by Emmanuel Borlaza, Joey Gosiengfiao and Elwood Perez released in March 23, 1973 from Sine Pilipino Prods. The print is now considered lost. The showdown between Vilma Santos and Gloria Romero as the Impakta at the top of the church is a must see in this movie. Celia Rodriguez in the camp vignette in another episode as Valentina  provides the famous line as she sees Darna flying over Rizal Park at lunch time......"sino ang babaeng yan na mababa ang lipad?!  ;D

Hi there! May I also add another LOST Pinoy film? This was the landmark film "LIPAD, DARNA, LIPAD" which catapulted Star for all Seasons VILMA SANTOS (now the Governor-elect of Batangas) to MOVIE QUEEN status. Released in March 1973, this trilogy broke all existing box-office records at that time with Vilma eclipsing all her contemporries including her biggest rival at that time.

"LIPAD, DARNA LIPAD" featured Vilma Santos as Darna and alter ego Narda. Based on the famous Mars Ravelo character and produced by Sine Pilipino, the first episode "Babaing Impakta" was directed by Emmanuel Borlaza with GLORIA ROMERO playing Darna's "manananggal" nemesis; the second episode "Babaing Ahas" was directed by Elwood Perez with CELIA RODRIGUEZ playing Valentina (in my opinion the best Valentina of them all); and the third episode "Babaing Lawin" was directed by the late Joey Gosiengfiao with LIZA LORENA playing the hawkwoman. "Lipad" was the greatest Darna film ever made and the producers have reported this monumental film as LOST with no surviving copies whatsoever!

Two (2) other Sine Pilipino productions which were also huge solo hits for Vilma prior to this Darna film are also LOST. These are "TAKBO, VILMA, DALI!" (1972), a suspense thriller where Vilma starred with the late great Miss RITA GOMEZ, and "HATINGGABI NA, VILMA!" (1972), another thriller where Vilma was pitted against veteran actress BARBARA PEREZ. Both films were written and directed by JOEY GOSIENGFIAO.

For any info on these LOST CLASSICS, please text me at 0917-884 8503 or contact the administrator of www.vilmasantos.net.

Thanks!

hello.
just found this site a few days ago.
share ko lang ang story ko.
me and my close friend love old filipino movies, minsan nagpunta kami sa isang old video store dito sa san diego at we could not believe ang mga movies nila na nagkalat lang. so we decided to buy some of them. mga $3.00 lang ang isa...happy nga yung mayari dahil wala na nga daw nagrerent nang mga movies na yon.tapos sabi nung mayari ay sa inyo na lang yung iba...na nandoon sa bodega, kaya lang kayo ang maghalunkat at marurumihan kayo doon. pero we dont care at all. sige smokey mountain kaming dalawa...nang matapos kami ay super dumi namin pero happy naman kami.

walang sinabi yung mga films ngayon compared sa mga movies nung 70's and 80's.
nakakamiss talaga...thanks ....sorry mahaba

Are you sure it was lost? Viva produced NINJA KIDS also during the 80's. 


Its not lost. Viva released the vcd of the film 2 years ago. But they never reproduced a copy again.

This thread is dedicated to Filipino films that are presumably lost, neglect and doesn't exist anymore and sometimes lurking in other countries. Let's start with the great Lino Brocka's directorial debut.....WANTED:PERFECT MOTHER.

Most of Sine Pilipino Prods. like Bernals' ZOOM, ZOOM SUPERMAN, SI POPEYE ATBP cannot be found anymore. Film curator Teddy Co even ask Elwood Perez & Joey Gosiengfiao who were Douglas Quijano's co-producer during its time attest that they can't find a copy anymore.

Here are some LOST FILIPINO FILMS:

 

DAIGDIG NG MGA API- said to be the HOLY GRAIL OF PHILIPPINE CINEMA
EL FILIBUSTERISMO
WANTED: PERFECT MOTHER
ZOOM ZOOM SUPERMAN
SI POPEYE ATBP.
BINHI
SUPERGIRL
ELEKTRIKA
BAGONG HARI


FWI my friend found  the reel, isang can of Elektrika Kasi eh' kaya nga lang mahal daw ang pa transfer nito, and he's not sure kung ito ay boung pelikula. Also nakita din nya same place ung Darna at Impakta at malutong na raw ung negatives nito. Supergirl was shown sa Sky Cable at colored pa ito.

i dont know if this has been asked before, but i need to say it.  how come there are existing prints of old 50s and 60s movies while some of the classic films of an era as recent as the 70s are lost?  It's really depressing to think that we've lost a great part of filipino legacy with these movies.
kunsabagay, just watching old 80s films on cinema one, you really notice how badly discolored and out of focus some of the movies are.

Most of Sine Pilipino Prods. and those rare Pinoy films have been shown on channel 13 back in the late 70's up to the early 80's. If you grew up during those years, you are lucky enough to catch those films including ELEKTRIKA, SI POPEYE ATBP and ZOOM ZOOM SUPERMAN. I believe the umatic transfer was on their archive but got lost after the Edsa Revolution.

The Edsa revolt shut down also the Second Golden Age of Philippine Cinema.

Is it connected to SOFIA? Also, does the group have a mailing list or website containing announcements?

Desperately seeking ‘Burlesk Queen’


By Bayani San Diego Jr.
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 07:22:00 12/31/2007


MANILA, Philippines – Hailed by some critics as a modern Filipino movie classic, “Burlesk Queen” is also something of a Holy Grail for film archivists.

According to urban legend, a copy of “Burlesk Queen” was irretrievably lost after a storage room in the Manila Film Center was flooded following heavy rains sometime in the 1980s.

Film archivist Teddy Co, however, told Inquirer Entertainment that the last known copy of “Burlesk” had been damaged “in a film laboratory’s warehouse, not at the MFC, but also because of a sudden downpour.”

Co said, “Film archives have three known enemies: flood, fire and war. That’s why we have recovered very few films from the 1930s and 1940s.”

But Celso Ad. Castillo’s “Burlesk Queen” is a fairly recent movie. It was the controversial landslide winner in the hotly contested 1977 Metro Manila Film Festival.

In a recent interview with Inquirer Entertainment, Castillo corrected the impression that his film was “lost forever.”

“I was told by [producer] Manny Nuqui that a copy was found in Germany,” Castillo said. “And I heard that the current owner has a high asking price. Maybe he is aware of the film’s importance.”

Nuqui, president of the Philippine Motion Pictures Producers Association (PMPPA), confirmed that he had heard of an existing copy of “Burlesk” in Europe.

“Mowelfund was tasked to recover it years after its producer, Ian Film Productions, sold it abroad in the late 1970s,” Nuqui related.

Nick Deocampo, Mowelfund director, informed Inquirer Entertainment that “Burlesk Queen” is available on VCD. “But it’s blurry,” he said, “made from a Betamax copy.”

He also said that Mowelfund had traced “negative and print copies” to the present owner, Manfred Diurneok, based in Frankfurt, Germany.

Deocampo recalled that, a few years back, Diurneok had asked Mowelfund for “round-trip business class tickets” so terms of the resale could be negotiated in Manila.

“It was a reasonable request,” Deocampo noted, “but no one picked it up, and the deal fell through.”

Could “Burlesk” ever come home?

Castillo certainly hopes so.

The film is occasionally aired on cable TV, he said. “But watching it on the big screen is a completely different experience.”

Just as optimistic about the “Burlesk” retrieval is its lead star, Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos.

“‘Burlesk’ is one of my favorite movies,” she said. “It was a turning point in my career. From my pa-sweet image, I dared become a more serious actress.”

With the new "Palos" TV show on ABS-CBN, you'd think they'd release at least one of the old Bernard Bonnin "Palos" movies on DVD or VCD, right? Or are they lost as well?

Hey Jojo someone has the film reel of SUPERGIRL and ELEKTRIKA. Jeez..... I almost fell on the couch and got a heart attack! :o

New here.  Anyway, I was excited to find out about this.  So, are there any developments?

As for the topic, I would like to add a few:


One is Tarzan vs Tansan starring Vic Vargas and Dolphy

Another film also stars Vic Vargas but I can't remember the title.  Basta the story revolved around twins in Bataan during WW2.  In the end, one of the twins died while they were trying to escape when Bataan fell.  This movie got me really interested in war movies, and I remember watching this over and over again.  Anyone remember the title of this movie?

Hey, guys! I wonder if you've come across this article on Gerardo De Leon's El Filibusterismo (pay special attention to the "comments" section)? Are we missing on something here?
