Gintong Taon ng “Iginuhit ng Tadhana”

FILMS - 1965 Iginuhit ng Tadhana

“…Iginuhit ng Tadhana: The Ferdinand E. Marcos Story (1965) (Carved by Destiny) is a movie based on the life of Ferdinand Marcos prior to his ascendancy as President of the Philippines. The movie was chronological in setting, featuring Marcos as a young boy in his hometown, as a brilliant student, and up to the time that he was unjustly imprisoned as a suspect in the murder of the political rival of his father. The movie then moves up to his acquittal, his career as a young congressman and senator, and up to the time that he married Imelda Marcos. The movie was shown in Manila as additional campaign material for Marcos’ candidacy for the Presidential race, which he eventually won. The movie portrayed Marcos as a person who is more than just a politician…” – Wikipilipinas (READ MORE)

“…Marcos knew the power of the medium of film. Earlier on, Marcos produced a film biography using the most popular stars for his first presidential campaign. He ran against Macapagal who also came up with a film biography to boost his reelection bid. Marcos would also use another film Iginuhit ng Tadhana (Written by Destiny, 1965) to campaign for a second term. The two Marcos film bios would be the only successful political films—commercial and election wise—as other film biographies in the post-Marcos period by senatorial and presidential aspirants would prove dismal, unhelpful for election bids. The post-Marcos period liberalized the political and economic scene. It conventionalized and intensified the election of movie and sports stars, and even television news hosts to national politics. Television stations were sequestered by the government, the largest of which, however, was returned to its pre-martial law owners. ABS-CBN would become the leading television station until after 2000, allowing two of its news anchors to become senators…” – Rolando Tino (READ MORE)

What’s Love Got To Do With It? Isang Gabi Tatlong Reyna


One rainy Friday night in August, 1990, all roads led to the Metropolitan Theater where the top-rating and the most awarded musical-variety TV show Vilma! would air one of its most-watched episodes, ever. Vilma Santos, who would turn 37 that year, was on cloud nine. She was the toast of the town, in both movies and television. Her Lino Brocka directed movie “Hahamakin Lahat” was a commercial and critical success. Come hell or high water (there was a tropical storm), fans queued at the SRO theaters and saw her out and out Cruella Deville role as Gabby Concepcion’s paramour. Some like her bad. Vilma, the versatile actress scored again. Earlier, she won her first of six Star PMPC and her fourth Urian best actress awards for her ’best’ performance in years in “Pahiram ng Isang Umaga,” which was directed by Ishmael Bernal. She also just finished “Kapag Langit ang Humatol” with Laurice Guillen at the helm. At the PMPC Star Awards for TV, Vilma’s show harvested the biggest awards. And on that particular rainy night at the jam packed Metropolitan Theater, Vilma Santos was paying tribute to a Movie Queen she loved dearly and who reciprocated that love. Amalia Fuentes was the special guest, who just turned 50. Vilma! was giving her a tribute, with special appearances of former Sampaguita Productions ’stars.’ Everybody knew that despite the infamous Romeo Vasquez/Vilma Santos le affair Amalia and Vilma remained the best of friends. With a sincere, charismatic and humble La Vilma, who could resist her charm? Yes, the original Taray Queen, forceful and outspoken former queen of Philippine movies, she with a strong personality but with the most beautiful face in Philippine cinema, acquiesced to her friend’s request to grace the most watched TV show. Love begets love. Respect begets respect.

The retired and reclusive Amalia Fuentes could not say no to the current darling of Philippine movies. 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. Why, Liezl even sang a song ’’Wind Beneath My Wings’ to her surprised mother that night which drove the strong-willed and still beautiful Amalia to tears. A Kodak moment, indeed. Priceless! While interviewing the three Muhlach generations, Fuentes, Liezl and young daughter Aliyanna, Amalia revealed to Vilma that she is protective of her ’unica hija’ Liezl. “Ay naku, I think I also have become like my Mom, I’m also very protective of my children,” Liezl remarks. Ex-Sampaguita stars Luis Gonzales and German Moreno served as Vilma’s co-hosts who provided comic relief as they recalled their Sampaguita days with Amalia Fuentes. Debonair Eddie Gutierrez also came to greet Amalia a Happy Birthday. Then Daisy Romualdez, Amalia’s contemporary and best friend danced the mambo/cha-cha with dancing queen Vilma, along with Kuya Germs and Luis Gonzalez. “I messed up that dance number,” Daisy gamely confesses, “wala kasing practice.” On her friend Nena (Amalia), Daisy admires her colleague for being frank and outspoken like her. “Nagkasundo kami kaagad dahil pareho kaming prangka ni Nena, hindi kami plastik,” she bemuses. The highlight of the evening was when Vilma introduced another special guest, the other Queen of Philippine movies, Amalia’s rival, Ms. Susan Roces. Radiant and regal in her Susan Roces hairdo and dark, glossy gown, Ms. Roces was polite and generous with her comments on her kumarerival. Vilma, obviously starstruck, throws a question to Susan: “What can you say about Ate Nena as being mataray and you Ate Susan as soft-spoken?” Susan: “I’d like to make a correction Vi, Amalia is not mataray, she is just outspoken, pero nasa lugar, so there’s a difference there.” Applause from the audience. “Alam mo ba Vi na my mother dotes on Amalia dahil pareho silang prangka? Sabi ng Mommy ko, iyang si Susan hindi pumaris kay Amalia, prangka at di iyakin.” Amalia on Susan: “I want to be like Susan dahil she is so sweet and soft-spoken. Doon nga sa weekly sessions namin, sabi ni Doctor Perez, why don’t you be like Susan, matiyaga sa fans, ikaw, sumakit lang ang ulo mo, ayaw mo nang harapin ang fans.” Guffaws and chuckles. The conversation turns serious. Vilma: “How did you handle the competition? Did the intrigues get in your way, affected you?” Susan, smiling sweetly, with a politically correct comment: “Hindi naman. We were in the same movie company and we were treated fairly. We’re like one big family.

In your case with Nora, and Gloria Romero and Nida Blanca, it’s different. Magka-iba kayo ng movie companies.” Vilma: “Ay ang sarap, sana, one of these days magksama rin kami ni Nora Aunor like this one, Ate Susan and Ate Nena, together.” Amalia Fuentes, Susan Roces and Vilma Santos. Isang Gabi, Tatlong Reyna. Susan, a movie queen, honoring a rival-friend movie queen Amalia on her 50th. birthday. Amalia confessed on the show and thanked Susan for throwing a surprise birthday party for her days before the Vilma show. What’s love got to do with it? In the case of Susan and Amalia, it’s love. In the case of Vilma and Amalia, it’s also love. Diva to diva. Competitors can be friends. May it also happen to Vilma Santos and Nora Aunor. Rivals on the silver screen, friends for life. After all, love conquers all. It is more permanent than fleeting fame and fortune. – Mario O. Garces, V Magazine Issue Nos 6 (READ MORE)

Vilma at OK Fine! Whatevers (2003)


Basic Information: Director: Danni Caparas; Writing credits: Sherwin Buenvenida, Rolf Mahilom, Divino Reyes, Rhandy Reyes, Woodrow Serafin; Cast: Aga Muhlach, Bayani Agbayani, Edu Manzano, Rica Peralejo, Gloria Romero, Dagul, John Estrada, Erich Gonzales, Darling Lavina, Juliana Palermo, Mariel Rodriguez, Tado, Jeffrey Tam, Nikki Valdez, Onyok Velasco, Arron Villaflor; Producer: Phoebe Anievas, Mark Anthony Gile, Cynthia Jordan; Film Editing: Roy Francia; Release Date:2003 (Philippines); Production Co: ABS-CBN – IMDB (READ MORE)

Reviews: “…With a guest list that includes Sharon Cuneta, Regine Velasquez, Roderick Paulate, and several top-secret guest appearances, OK Fine! Whatevers definitely become a must-see show for ABS-CBNs Tuesday primetime lineup. New cast additions Edu Manzano and Tado have also livened up the OK Fine! mix, as long-lost fraternal twins Michael (Aga Muhlach) and Miguel (Bayani Agbayani) have finally formed a family along with their Lola Barbie (Gloria Romero). Now, Michael is the middleman for the get-richquick schemes of his eccentric new neighbor Junior (Edu Manzano). Junior, elder brother of girl-next-door Icay (Rica Peralejo), can be seen operating a car wash, manned by sexy girls, by day while pursuing his interests in jewelry and archaeology on his off hours. Despite his business sense, Kuya Junior always needs Michaels hand whenever he gets into trouble. Meanwhile, ace mechanic Miguel does miracles with the neighborhood cars. Along for the ride are such characters as Lola Barbies maid Camilla (Nikki Valdez) and all-around sidekicks Dong (Onyok Velasco) and Tado…” – Manila Bulletin (READ MORE)

“…While the initial concept was to stir both curiosity and bewilderment among viewers on how on earth funnyman Bayani Agbayani could be the twin brother of drop-dead gorgeous Aga Muhlach, the show has evolved into some sort of weekly witty exchange of comic punchlines and outrageous situations. This, after the creative team behind the show finally found the right chemistry – meaning, the right people for the right roles. With the inclusion of Edu Manzano, undeniably another drop-dead gorgeous actor (although a bit senior in terms of age and experience, but nevertheless gifted with an endearing and highly intellectual kind of outrageous flair), the Aga-Bayani tandem has expanded into a funny triumvirate. Over dinner with Edu, Aga, Bayani and the show’s executive producer Cynthia Jordan last week, spirits ran high as each shared anecdotes and stories about the show, specifically the special anniversary episodes they have taped. Some of the brightest stars will make rare appearances on the show for the next four weeks. Vilma Santos, Sharon Cuneta, Roderick Paulate, Regine Velasquez will take turns in doling out laughs with Edu, Aga and Bayani, plus the other mainstays who include Gloria Romero, Rica Peralejo, Nikki Valdez, Onyok Velasco and Tado Jimenez…” – The Philippine Star (READ MORE)
