Film Review: Citation needed for this film. IMDB listed this film under both 1970 where VSR wasn’t even mentioned and in year 1972 where Vilma Santos was the only person credited. Meanwhile, Wikipedia mentioned this film under year 1971 on its filmography section. Adding to the confusion is whether this film also featured Edgar Mortiz. We’re going to cite 1970 as the year this film was made since Eric Nadurata’s SFAS site listed this film on this year.

“…To recall, the senior and junior movie queens appeared in these movies: Bulaklak at Paru-paro (1970), Mga Reynang Walang Trono (1976) and Asawa Ko, Huwag Mong Agawin (1986). Amalia directed Vilma’s episode in Mga Reyna and agreed to second billing to Vilma in Asawa Ko. No doubt about it, Amalia Muhlach Sumilang Fuentes, is a Vilmanian. To seal their sisterhood and camaraderie, Vilma is Ninang to Liezl Martinez and to the latter’s son Alfonso…” – Mario O. Garces, V Magazine Issue Nos 6 (READ MORE)
