Yeah, I should've upped the stakes on the bet, shouldn't I? ;D

Sorry, man. You didn't.  ;D

Maybe Teddy can dig DAIGDIG NG MGA API & EL FILI.

Ask him. He'll admit Daigdig, at least, is lost. Maybe he's found El Fili already? ;D

Updated the lists and I'm sure hundreds more are presumably LOST. I'm glad to know that the cult classic PAGSAPIT NG DILIM is still around!

Most of Gerry de Leon films are missing and he left behind 76 feature films plus countless documentations and television commercials that only few have seen it.

this is one movie i would kill to have in my collection... it was produced by Prima Productions. remember the giant frog that trampled Mildred Ortega & Ike Lozada the village idiot who kept on running holding his slippers & was stuck by a bamboo? i used to have a copy of Fantastika Vs. Wonder Woman with Pinky Montilla & Alma Moreno. someone borrowed the tape from me & never returned it.

Who made that great film?  ;D It was shot in black and white, right?

Who was ZOILA? The film was presented with creepy and eerie atmosphere, could also qualify as one of the best horror films in Philippine Cinema.

Zoila was more of a komiks novelist than a director. She wrote & illustrated Super Gee & Fantastika.

Never heard of ZOILA, jo. Thanks for the info. Maybe the film was buried in some bodega rotten and destroyed already.

Does anyone here remember "Sarhento Salcedo"? It was set in WWII and it was about a woman who takes over the identity of her paternal twin gay brother, who was a soldier, so she can be closer to the man she loves, who is also a soldier? I forgot who starred in it, but I've been looking for some kind of copy of it.

Someone mentioned TUKO SA MADRE KAKAW as one of his top ten best Filipino flicks, can't really recall anymore this movie, but I have seen it during my one lazy afternoon days during the 80's on channel 9.

Actually, I think it's inspired by H.G. Wells' Food of the Gods.

TUKO SA MADRE KAKAW has the makings of a cult classic, sort of a B-movie.

How about Boots Anson-Roa's "Alaala Mo, Daigdig Ko" (1974) Virgo Films? IS there an existing copy of it? This stars Maricel Soriano wherein she won as the Best Child Actress in 1974 Manila Film Festival.

The likes of Elwood Perez, Joey Gosiengfiao & Gil Portes gush over Gerry de Leon's DAIGDIG NG MGA API. That makes this film a stiff competition against Brocka's MAYNILA SA KUKO NG LIWANAG. But Maynila has the edge since its still available for viewing on cable and the print still exists.

Thanks to RMN for the info.

how about batwoman and robin which starred virginia and robin aristorenas and it's sequel where they go up against vampires.  i also recall seeing johnny joker which also starred jun aristorenas.  the first two were in black and white while the third one was in color.

Lilibeth Vera-Perez one of the children of the late Dr. Jose Perez of Sampaguita Pictures is currently looking for a clear copy of ROBERTA. The Mars Ravelo classic that saved Sampaguita Pictures from bankruptcy back in the 50's that made Tessie Agana a household name. I remember watching her in BUNSONG KERUBIN. I doubt also if this film still exists. She's willing to pay as high as she could provided the film is still in clear copy condition.

Over 600 movies were produced by Sampaguita Pictures during the 1st Golden Age of Philippine Cinema, and only around less than 100 were saved. When she returned from the U.S. she found only 20 films in their vault which includes the Alma Moreno starrer, EVA FONDA 16, DYESEBEL, and some Nora-Tirso movies. She sold those films to Ricky del Rosario of Viva Films which acquired the rights over the movies and paid her P300,000 which she used in setting-up the film archive of Sampaguita Pictures.

what the article said is true... although the CCP and NCCA should not limit the archiving of films to just the best ones. even those so-called pene movies of the 80's should be kept for the simple reason that they also played an integral part in the history of Philippine Cinema
