Film Review:“…Ipinanganak nga marahil si Ma. Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos sa show business dahil sa pagitan ng taping ng “Larawan..” ay nagkasunod-sunod na ang kanyang mga pelikula…“My Darling Eddie” ng JBC (Disyembre 16 – 23, 1969, “Mardy” ng JBC (Disyembre 31 – Enero 6, 1969)…hanggang “Young Love” ng VP Enero 1 – 21, 1970) ng lumikha ng rekord sa takilya….Makalipas ang mga tatlong buwan, nakatanggap ng maikling sulat si Mama Santos muka lay G. Agra. Naghahanap ang Sampaguita Picutures ng batang babae na gaganap ng mahalagang papel sa “Anak, Ang Iyong Ina!” at isinali ng amain ang pangalan ni Vi. Hindi puwedeng lumiban si Papa Santos sa pinpasukang government office, at ayaw naman nilang mapahiya ang kamag-anak, kaya napilitan si Mama Santos na humingi ng day=off sa opisina (Aguinaldo’s). Pagdating sa studio, wala si G. Agra at nasa location shooting, ngunit totoong naroroon ang pangalan ni Vi, kaya’t pinapasok sila sa tanggapan. Napadaan sa harapan ni Mama Santos si Bella Flores na dala ang script ng “Trudis Liit.” Nagulumihanan si Mama Santos. Binasa niyang muli ang liham ni G. Agra. Mali yata ang napuntahan nila! Akma niyang tatawagin si Vi na noon ay nkikipaglaro sa iba pang mga bata upang yayain na itong umuwi, nang pumasok sina Mommy Vera, Dr. at Mrs. Perez, at Eddie Garcia. At doon nagsimula ang movie career ni Vi na magpahanggang ngayon ay batbat pa rin ng iba’t ibang panunuri, opinyon at konklusiyon…” – Ched P. Gonzales (READ MORE)

“…Sa Bawa’t Pintig ng Puso, 1964 – Vilma, the junior actress, no longer a child, not yet a woman, found her niche in the adult drama troika of Marlene Dauden, Lolita Rodriguez, and Eddie Rodriguez as the proverbial daughter caught in the menage a trois. Good company of dramatic greats. Boring and unchallenging role of a good daughter in forgettable tearjerkers followed: Iginuhit ng Tadhana, De Colores, Kasalanan Kaya? and Sino Ang May Karapatan? (1968)…” – Anonymous (READ MORE)

“…In the ’50s and early ’60s, it would have been difficult, if not impossible, to team up Zaldy Zshornack and Marlene Dauden in a movie. They then belonged to different studies, Zaldy with Premiere and Larry Santiago and Marlene with Sampaguita. Sa Bawat Pintig ng Puso became a reality when the two stars turned freelancers. Marlene was identified with dramatic roles, while Zaldy excelled in action-dramas. Sharing stellar billing with them were Alone Alegre and Sammy Barretto. In ‘very special roles’ were veteran actress Lillian Leonardo and teenage star Vilma Santos…” – RKC, The Philippine Star, 25 January 2015 (READ MORE)
